Where To Develop 6x7 Film?
« on: October 31, 2013, 08:58:24 PM »

I am new to medium format film, may someone recommend a high quality film developing shop for 6x7 film?  (Preferably in NYC but will mail film to a place of exceptional quality).  I know I can get it done at B&H but I'm less than certain of how they are for developing.  Thank you!

LTi is great
www.ltinyc.com
Duggal as well
www.duggal.com

If you want to give a mail-order firm a try, loads of folks use Indie Film Lab:
www.indiefilmlab.com

I'm basing my answers here on the assumption that you're shooting color neg film(aka C41)

cheers,
Dan

Duggal, has been my go to lab since I moved to NYC in 1990.

They are the best, they are consistent, and very clean!

They always deliver.

Me too.  I moved away few years ago but mail all my color and E6 to them.  They are the best.

Thank you all for the suggestions.  AGX has a beautiful website, I think I'm going to keep it local for this batch though.  Does anyone have feelings on LTI vs. Duggal?  Duggal is quite a bit more money, but if it's worth it, I'm willing to pay more.

I recommend the color house, downtown at 177 Lafayette street. They have some of the equipment and personnel from the now defunct L&I.

I vote Duggal because they were good to me over the course of my career.  Top notch.  I don't know if they re better than LTI.

I just sent out 3 rolls to LTI for the first time.  I haven't gotten them back yet but they insert in pages in 3 3 2 2 rather then in my requested 4 3 3.  I'll know more later about the quality of their processing.
