I just got back two rolls of PXR (7276) and one roll of E100D Super-8 from BPS Film Lab in Batavia, IL. I only heard of this lab from John Schwind, the regular 8mm guy. After finding few reviews of this lab, I decided to send in a few carts. The results from the E-6 was as clean and well-processed as any of the big name labs, but I was really impressed by the PXR. This PXR was stored at room temperature on a shelf for the past decade, and I wasn't sure how good it would turn out. The results were far better than I expected, and at only $9.50 a roll for B&W, and $12.50 for E-6, I am just surprised no one else has used this lab.


P.S. They also do Super-8 color neg, 16mm E-6, B&W reversal and neg, and 16mm color neg.

Hey Nicholas...


BPS is still operating? I thought they went out of business years ago. They are located just west of Chicago.

He used to do a lot of student film processing for Columbia college in Chicago.

How was the turn around time?

The turnaround for B&W was pretty good for a small operation. It got delivered to them on Wednesday, and went out the following Monday. The E-6 was a little slower, at about a week from delivery to ship.

I finally gave them a try and I'm glad I did. R-8mm Plus-X shot with my trusty Bolex H8 came out superb. High quality processing and super clean at a great price. How great? For the 25ft roll, I was charged for 25ft of 16mm B+W reversal processing.
With postage the total was $6.50. I slit it myself and mounted it on a 50ft reel. Nice to be able to save this way. Most labs gouge on the slitting and mounting charges for R-8mm and DS-8mm film...
