    I got a deal on 15 rolls of various 35mm print films, so I've been testing cameras that came as rear caps for some of my legacy lenses. :smile: Now I'd like some advice about where I can send the film for processing.

    The only place that processes film locally is a high-end shop, and I don't want to pay its prices for test shots. I'm not even sure the shutters are all opening let alone that the meters are giving good exposures.

    I think what I want is developing the negatives (some color, some b&w) and getting basic scans or prints, whichever is cheaper. There's one roll each of color and b&w that I want to have printed because my daughter shot them and I want her to feel the excitement of getting prints back. I want to get "true black" prints for the b&w, not the chromatowhatever greenies.

    Any processors to recommend?

    I got the first roll of black and white that I shot in a long time developed by Ilford UK http://www.ilfordlab.com/. I was very happy with the results but they are pricey enough.

    They have a US/Canada site as well http://www.ilfordlab-us.com/

    My next roll I'm going to develop myself.
