120 Processing


Link Posted 05/02/2009 - 22:04
Hi all
I know their not Pentax, but I like playing with old folders and I wondered if any of you out there could recomend a reasonable processing house for 120 films in the uk, obviously not to pro. standards as most of my films are just to try the old cameras out.
Thanks Mick

Try your local Snappy Snaps - not all branches deal with 120 film in-house but I'm sure they can redirect it to a branch that does. I use my local for 35mm D&P and have been very impressed with price and quality.

This is a good lab link

mxds: I do B/W processing cheap for members of my Camera Club if you want to try old folding cameras.Send me 120 films and some neg bags how you want them cut with a cheque for £1-00 per film - let me know if they are outdated films as they would need a bit extra development ( I use all outdated films) PM me if you want and I can send you my contact address etc . ...
