Nowaday labs usually send their slides to the factory and develop. Even labs like Colorlab don't develop slide no more, they will send it to factory.

Normally I paid $4 but now I got to pay $6 for a roll.

What about RGB or 35 mm? Do they still develop slides?

Thanks.

RGB Color does slide processing (E-6 process), same day service if you send it in the morning, at $4.70 per roll (excluding any mounting or scanning). NUS students get discount.

Colour Lab has always been charging $6, it's RGB that's charging $4 actually. No longer do slides since I do mainly digital now, so not too sure whats out there now. I am pretty sure RGB still does it. Nothing wrong if they send to factory anyway. ;)

Hi, how about processing 6x6 or 6x7 slides? Do you know who and how much? How about making prints from slides of those sizes? Got a feeling it will be very expensive.

Thanks.

no lar, you kanna cheated already . it was $4 then $4.50 then boom $6 . nothing wrong if sent to factory ? It does matter :

1: more expensive if doing bulk developing .
2: longer waiting time. it used to be 1 day , now I got to wait 3 - 5 days.
3: quality control : i don't want my slides to have scratches.

As far as I remember, Colour Lab has been charging $6 unmounted for at least 2 years. Same goes to FotoHub. The only lab I know that charges $4+ is RGB, which has a turnaround time of about 3 hours.

The cheapest, fastest place to do slide processing is RGB. The other labs will take 2-3 days (at least before I went digital). Whether the slides will have scratches or not is independent on whether the lab send it to a factory. If the factory operator takes good care, that should not happen. If the lab operator never take good care, it will be scratched anyway.

I have not tried the Fuji factory in AMK(?) but people whom I know have tried it are pretty satisfied with the results.

So far all my slides are being developed at RGB. They are fast, only require, 2-3 hours before you can collect it.

Besides they offer discount to all students (not necessary NUS).

Colourlab's slides printing is not traditional printing right?

Nope. RGB's isn't either, if I am not wrong. Nowadays, most places do the "scan then print" method.
