Does anyone know of a good lab in the Wisconsin area that can develope 4x5 color slide, and 4x5 black and white film?

I have been sending my stuff to A&I labs in California, but it would be nice to find something closer.

Normally I would do my own black and white, but I have been having some problems so I want to see what happens if a lab develops the negatives.

Thanks

How do you handle shipping film in?

Are you concerned with shipping companies scanning the un-processed film?

Trink5.0,
I send 120 B&W to them initially in one of those padded envelopes, they send std processing envelopes back...I contacted them because of the 2x3 and 3x4 sheet film they offer *******, thought I would try them out for dev. Several places here in California that do a good job, and a bit closer to me too....process my own B&W most of the time! Have had no problems with scanning at any time....Bert

Gamma photo in Chicago is very good. Their web site has a lot of good information about things like airport X-ray; maybe also something about scanning.

I realize this is serious thread necromancy, but if there is anyone still looking for a lab in Wisconsin, try Burne Photo Imaging in Madison. http://www.burne.com/

Exquisite service, excellent technically & the cheapest I have found, anywhere, for E-6 4x5. Very good people to deal with - when I picked up my first batch of Velvia (got some ISO 50 just to be able to try it. Really won't miss it as I prefer less saturated looks) I had the owner with me at the light table talking about the shots.

I can't recommend these folks highly enough.

I see you've given up on do-it-yourself b&w processing - I almost did - until I quit using cut film tanks (FR or Yankee, neither would work well). I bought some used Kodak 4x5 film hangers and some 1/2 gallon open hard rubber tanks and started processing b&w film in total darkness following the Kodak-recommended lift/tilt right, lift/tilt left every-one-minute agitation scheme. The result, flawless, even processing. The agitation cycle should take less than 10 seconds and be done once/minute.

The film hangers are alright when you need to burn through a bunch of negatives quickly, but I find tray processing with continuous agitation to be much more consistent as far as tone control goes.
