    how much do you pay for developing film.. all films are different and some require more work than others..

    to be exact.. ilford delta 100 135-36 ..

    i don't know.. cause this place in san francisco asks for about 6 dollars for processing fee.. and then 45 cents per exposure... which comes out to about 22-23 dollars!!.. thats a bit expensive isn't it..

    also, gettina 20x24 print from this is about 60 dollars... is this normal?

    it can be done cheaper (well, at least here in Holland)

    don't understand what you mean by "work"
    I mean, if they have to edit my photos I pay 30 euros per half hour

    normal development costs me about 14 euros (about 18 dollars at current exchange rate)

    Here in Kansas it would be about $12 for processing BW 35mm and one set of 36 4x6 RA prints at the local pro labs. I guess I'd expect it to be more expensive on the coasts.

    Im not sure if thats b&w film or not. For color film, I pay $3 Canadian for the developing, and $3 Canadian for the prints, for 24 exposures. Reprintsn are $0.25 each.

    If it is black and white film, I suggest buying a development tank and the chemicals and develop it yourself. :0) After 2 rolls the tank will pay for itself, hehe. Then take the negatives some place to get developed into prints, which should be able to be done on regular color machines. Walmart does a good job I find, and thier something like $0.17 american per print.

    I checked the price list at a place I;ve used before (not sure if they would be a pro lab or like prosumer, but not a mini lab)

    A 36 roll of B&W should be 16.88 for 3x5s or 19.40 for 4x6, one print each, or 22.82 & 26.60 for two prints each. Develop only is $5 for 35mm.

    A 20x24 enlargement is 45.00 for C or R prints. C is color. I dunno what R means! Is that some code for B&W?

    It means it's not a gelatin silver print, it's a BW print in color chemistry, sort of like C41 BW film.
