View Full Version : Looking for Lab in the Midwest?

Any suggestions for labs in the Midwest (U.S.) that do an excellent job with sheet film? I'm new to large format and am looking for resources.

Thanks in advance.

What type of film are you processing? E-6, C-41, or B/W?

If you're going to be mailing your film, there are many labs across the country that will have fast(sometimes even same day) turnaround, and happily take mail-order :)

I live in the Chicago area and process all my own film both B&W and color because I could not find a consistently high-quality lab. I am moving to a new home and will need to give up color processing I plan on sending my color film to Edgar Praus in Rochester, NY. http://www.4photolab.com/ about whom I have only heard wonderful things. If you are only shooting black and white I urge you to develop it yourself. It is not hard and takes a minimum of equipment—you don't need a darkroom.

Burne Photo in Madison Wi. does a great job with all sheet film. I've been using them for years.

You could try Allied Photocolor in St. Louis MO. I have not used them for LF yet, because I am a newbie and don't even have a camera yet. I have had them do large digital prints, and they used to do a great deal of custom silver printing.
