Colour film processing is quite normal through out, unless you pull or push the film ISO. Most of the time why you don't get the professional result because the way you store the film, shoot it and mostly because how they are printed. Processing is important only. If the shop don't stick to the right procedure like using exhuasted chemical or not cleaning their processor properly.

It uses the standard C-41 colour process, right? So it's pretty much straightforward and automated, as long as all the bases are covered as mentioned by the fellow CSers above.

NPH 400 can be developed anywhere. But to obtain the best results look for a Fuji Frontier Processor and use Fuji Crystal Archive paper as the result are pretty ordinary on other machines and paper( In my opinion).
Using a pro lab will ensure peace of mind but is not critical as all the Frontier developers use a databse to properly process your Fiji Film. If your friendly with the local Frontier Shop owner then you should have no problems obtaining quality results most of the time.
