Default developing Colour 5x4

Hi,

I develop my own 5 x 4 Black and White Film but am thinking of exposing some Colour - I have some C41 & E6 in the freezer. I'm not really geared up to develop Colour and wondered if members could recommend some labs in the UK that might still do this processing? Thanks

Peak has a good reputation but check out Matt at AgPhotographic as well. I don't know if he does 5x4 but worth a look. He may or may not be cheaper

A caveat: The advice above is not based on any experience of either for film processing but is just a thought on possibly another source

I used to send my E6 to: Metro Imaging 32 Great Sutton Street London, EC1V 0NB. Amazingly, they are still with us...

I would send E6 and C41 to Peak, they have a very good turnaround rate. I don't think AG do sheetfilm yet.

If you can process your own B&W film with a degree of precision (temperature, time and accuracy in making up the chemicals) why not process your own colour film?

nn

PS If I can do it then anybody can...

Thanks everyone for your helpful replies. I'll give Peak a try. Best wishes.
