    J&W in Raleigh botched my film

    They completely botched 2 rolls of Velvia 50 and 2 of Provis 400X, they're overfeveloped and discolored. They even admitted it was their own mistake, but god forbid they should offer me a refund or even an apology.

    Kills me, this was film from a once in a lifetime trip to my family's hometown in Hungary.

    To hell with them, does anyone know of a better lab in the area?

    Not in your immediate area, but I've been very happy with Alliedphotocolor.com in St. Louis. Very prompt, even with shipping.

    Also not in your area, but I've had "good luck" with Dale's photo lab in Hollywood, Florida.
    Every time something has been screwed up, they have offered a full refund in credit. To be fair, All of said screw-ups have been mine, so I can't say with certainty that they're good or that they'll do the same in a situation such as yours, but they seem nice. :-)

    they cover shipping to them as well.

    On recommendation of many here I've just sent a batch of 4X5 test chromes to Edgar Praus Productions in Rochester NY. We'll see.

    No they don't... they have their assistants do it.
