Film photographers now have something to be happy about: Ilford is opening a print lab in California. The lab will specialize in black and white prints, but they’ll be printing color as well. For many years now, Ilford has been developing photos in England as a mail order service for “amateur and hobbyist photographers who found it difficult to have their films processed and printed on real black and white silver gelatin photo paper at a local facility.”
The lab is able to work with black-and-white, C-41 color negative and E-6 transparency films in both the 35mm and 120 formats. Prints will be delivered on Ilford photo paper, and turnaround time is only 2-3 days.
Prices start at $16 per roll, with upgrades, enlargements and digital scans costing extra. Alternatively, customers can now use the secure website to pay for film processing online.
