medium format film

From time to time I still like to use my medium format cameras, but the hassle of developing has kept me from shooting more of it. Is there anyway cheap place where I can send my film and have the prints sent back to me?

I get my 120 film developed at the local MotoPhoto, it's cheap though they don't scan or print 120. Done in 2 hours! Drugstores may not develop locally, but they send the film out, takes something like a week.

Mail order, Dwayne's is good and cheap: A trusted name in photo processing for over 50 years - Dwayne's Photo

I've gotten 2 rolls of B&W 120 developed and printed at WalMart. It takes a while since they send it out. One roll came back fine, the second one has what looks like water marks on the prints but I haven't really had a chance to inspect the negatives yet.

According to what I've found online, WalMart sends them to Fuji, and if Fuji can't do them, they send them to Dwayne's of Kansas. It took about two weeks for each roll.

The price is great at $3.88 for 3 inch prints.

USA is a big neighbourhood but you can try one of the Pro labs in your area for mail orders.
