    I do my film-to-prints at Stanley Lim Colour Centre. Stanley is a professional photographer himself and he colour-corrects all the images (and not leave the machine on auto-mood).

    I was charged much less than $8 for a S8R prints at Stanley (not using Konica paper). Hee.

    For thoses who are interested, he is located at 2nd floor of Mid-Link Plaza (where Stansfield is) near Bugis.

    BTW, I do not work for them...

    I've done some Fuji Crystal Archive 8R before and those cost me $8/pc. Getting $3/pc on Konica Golden Dragon. Not too bad. No doubt i prefer the Fuji prints but the price difference just doesnt justify IMHO.

    Did it near my house leh... in Ang Mo Kio Central. Think it is called Meilim?? Yeah, on Konica Golden Dragon paper... In my opinion quite cheap after I see all the comments of $8/pc..... I should think I paid $3.5 for 8Rs??? Can't quite remeber but definitely not $8

    Wow, lucky you... I think S8R at $1.50 just nice to cover only his paper & ink cost.
    Hope your friend wouldn't 'hammer' you if he see U post this on the forum



    For bulk reprints of S8R on Kodak Royal Paper from negatives, my neighbourhood lab in AMK charges me about $2 each.


    N.B.
    If from digital files instead of negatives, it'll be more expensive.

    haha.. luckily she won't be able to find out. Well, I used to do my own colour print in a darkroom. Cost price of 8 x10 paper is about 80 cents each. Of course after all the test strips, you probably take about 3 papers to get a good print. So better to do in the the shop for me. But is still cheaper in comparison with printing from lab.

    just got back some S8R prints on Konica Golden paper. some of them turn out okie. but some a tad too dark or have a certain GREENISH CAST on them. S$1 a piece only !!!

    i think i'm sticking to kodak royal or pro paper for my S8Rs from now on. S$5 per piece.

    Cheers !!!

Tried RGB twice at Winsland Hse...colors turn out disappointing leh....lab techinician din do auto adjustments... spoke to him and it seems he deems it coy policy NOT to touch up. but the print was too damn blueish leh....!? even amateur could tell it makes common sense to tweak rite? some more i printed 2 10R leh! super X arr
    Usually, labs will NOT do correction for digital prints. That's because it's assumed that people will do their touchup, colour adjustments etc before they send it in, and any such adjustments will negate their efforts. Unless you request, of coz. But I am not sure if there will be additional charges.

    If your monitor is well calibrated and your camera has accurate enough colours (to your liking), then there usually will not be any problems.
