    Where or how do you get your slides processed?
    What are you paying for a roll of 36 mounted slides?

    I prefer to do mine local (with in a 30 minute drive)
    I got spoiled in NC US$9.00, here in MS they want US$17.00.

  2. http://tfiphoto.com which is closer to home, or
    http://www.dorianlab.com/.
    $12.50 at TFI. I haven't used dorian for 35mm for a while,
    but I think they're either the same price or a buck less.

    A$11, which in non-Pacific Pesos means
    under US$7

    € 2.99, unmounted though... (€ 1.99 if I cash in a coupon I get when
    buying a roll of slide film from the same shop)

    I send my black and white slides to DR-5 in Denver CO. They charge US
    $ 17.50 per roll plus including mounting.

    Agfa Scala, contact conversions or reverse processing?

    The shipping must be nearly as much as the processing? What is the turn
    around time?

    Reversal processing. They specialise in it and give a table of what
    exposure to use for various film types. After some experimentation I
    settled to use Ilford HP5+ and expose at the nominal 400ASA. I post
    4 films at a tiime to reduce the postage overheads but not create so
    big a package that customs charge tax on it on its return.

    Turnaround is variable, typically several weeks mostly because of the
    slow shipping (both ways).
