View Full Version : Lab recommendations in Portland, Oregon

19-Jun-2017, 08:38
Greetings. I'm looking for lab recommendations in Portland, preferably from personal experience. Since I'm not set up to process sheet film, it would for processing 5x7 B&W negatives primarily. I'm also looking for a lab to print digital files. If its the same lab, great. Otherwise, I would appreciate anyone's thoughts and experiences. Positive or negative.

Thank you!

Citizens. They've done E-6 for me and did it well.

I don't live in Portland but send Citizen's all my 4x5 color neg film. Good lab for that.

I've been sending 4x5 & 5x7 to Citizens for a year now and have been very happy.

I have used citizens to develop my sheet film - E6 and some c41. Negs look good, clean no dust or scratch issues that I have seen.

I use Citizens mostly, they are the closest and have reasonable prices. Another option (farther for me) is Blue Moon Camera and Machine, in the St Johns area. I wouldn't hesitate to use either lab.

Wow, Citizens is 5 for 5. Checked out their web site and prices are really reasonable. I plan on sending them some FP4 5x7 at the end of the week. Thanks all for your endorsements! -Ray

Yep, Citizens is the only lab in town with dip-and-dunk processing for E-6, C-41, and B&W. I use them all the time. (It doesn't hurt that they are 10 minutes from my workplace.)
