Where should I go to develop film in Toronto?

Anyone know any super-awesome places in Toronto to get film developed? [M.I.]

Ideally they would also be affordable. Also, it would be nice if they wouldn't bitch if I wanted to cross-process slide film. Places that develop black and white would also be great. Also, places that can scan my negatives on the cheap would be good.

I don't know if I'd call it super-awesome, but Annex Photo was pretty good when I frequented it some years ago. It's on Bloor, just East of Spadina and services the Annex (of course) and some of U of T. I know they develop black and white, and their prices were good, as I remember.

No idea, but I'd like to re-plug the Toronto Meetup saturday evening, 7pm, at the Bishop & Belcher!

Toronto Image Works. King and Spadina. I have developed a bunch of B/W film there. I scanned my own negatives, though , and processed them at Future Shop.

West Camera on Queen east of Bathurst is great. They do b/w film and fantastically vivid prints of color film. I have no experience with slide film.

There's a toronto metafilter meetup?

I specifically searched meetup, and it denied all knowledge of such a meetup..I believe it suggested I go to New York.

Meetup, here.


(Also, it'd help if someone could slap that up on the Grey, cuz I'm over my limit for the week.)

pikto in the Distillery District does great prints from digital, they do good lab processing too. The meetup I think is on the 18th no need to go to New York, duck.
(on preview - just like what dirtynumbangelboy said)

Pikto is a bit pricey. I think. Though they have a cool store and are quite friendly. I've never actually gotten prints done there because the one roll I gave them was unexposed (fucking Kiev.) Thanks for the suggestions. I'll check these places out.
