Hey there,

I live in Central Jersey, not the hottest spot for film labs, so I was wondering if anyone would recommend some labs for me. I'm on an extremely low budget, pulling out of my own pocket, and hope to be shooting a couple of shorts soon, but I need to know where I'm going to get my film processed and transfered to tape to edit.

Any recommendations around me or a place I can ship to would be fine, hopefully with resonable prices.

P.S. I will also probably be shooting on B&W Negative film.

Thanks a bunch,
Brendan :D

Hey Dan,

Looking at your price list...I think I got ripped off. I dropped off my first rolls of film to Pac Lab this morning to be processed and transferred. I had two 100' rolls, one 7222 b&w neg and one 7266 b&w reversal. The 7222 got split into two rolls because I had a jam in the camera. So they treated it as two rolls, which I guess is understandable. It cost me $170+ to process and rank telecine transfer 200ft of 16mm film to minidv. According to your pricelist, you guys would've cost me less than half that. Does what I got charged sound a bit high to anyone else?
