    Lab recommendations in Portland, Oregon

    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!

    Ray

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

    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.)
