    Color lab recommendations

    Hello fellow LF Forum members ~

    I am brand new to LF and this forum. I have found it to be a great resource as I am now getting my feet into LF for the first time.

    I just purchased a Toyo-Field 45AII camera and a couple of lenses, learning the ropes, making mistakes, learning, making mistakes, ...

    My plan is to shoot both b/w and color, but probably b/w mostly. For b/w I plan on sending off my film to Dalmatian Labs, which conveniently is located in Greensboro, not far from where I live in Raleigh, NC.

    I am wondering if anyone has some recommendations for a great color lab, as Dalmatian only processes b/w film? I am, at least initially, shooting Portra 400 on the color side of things.

    Thanks in advance and I am looking forward to being a member of this LF community.

    All the best,
    Christer B
    Raleigh, NC

    Hi Christer B, and welcome aboard.

    Another vote for Dodge Chrome.

    They do all my work. Excellent quality.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    Thanks to everyone who responded so quickly. I will give DodgeChrome in DC a whirl, based on your recommendations and proximity to me.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    A third vote for Dodge-Chrome; I think they'll fit your needs, nicely. I've had good luck with them and use them for almost all of my processing needs. I can also talk to "the film guy," if I need to.

    Let us "know how it goes" for you.
