A roll of 120 film is around $12-14 to process from the larger stores....not sure about 220 film.
Thats pretty steep. In Brisbane its about $8 to get a roll of 120 developed and $12 for 220. develop and prints for 120 from the place that i use is $19

thanks to you both, I'll have to ponder this some more I wish we had a price on the 645d, then I'd know if there was any possibility or whether it be relegated to being a dream.

Seems I'm paying too much then....

Problem is I'm shooting Astia100 and there's very places in Melb that can do E6 processing.

I'm seriously thinking about getting into medium format by picking up an older 645 from KEH. I like manual focus so I can pick one of the older models (non-N) with a 75mm 2.8 lens for just shy of $400 USD.

But I have a K10D with cheap lenses. Am I being crazy? Is medium format worth it? Should I just get a set of pancakes instead?

I had this delema back in 2001. I wanted a 645, but when i compared the 645 against the 6x7, i went with the 6x7. I paied $1000.00 Can for the body and a 90mm Leaf shuter lens. Now i thing they go for less that 1/2 that.

Siggggggghhhhhh.

At that time i only had a D1 that i used for horse shows, and was reluctant to use it for personal use in case i broke it or lost it etc. Now i have several bodies, and the film is suffering.

I still use the 6x7 for fall colours and some B&W(it will be coming with me the NC next week). Even at our big chain store, the film rack is getting smaller every year.

Good luck with your decision.

Dave

Hi Phil,

The film has been running me between $4 and $6 USD a roll, the processing is almost $14 USD a roll. Unfortunatly the store where I was getting my work done is now closed so I have to find a new lab or somewhere to mail my film to to have it processes.

If you are shooting black and white, then get yourself a patterson developing tank and do it yourself. Id say the hardest thing to do is pulling the backing paper off the film (which isnt very difficult).
