Photographer Danny Clinch enjoys a good processed print – “I never crop my pictures” – and takes his film to C-Lab (650 Broadway, near Bleecker Street; 228-2522), specialists in professional development. For the casual lensman, our own search turned up Flatiron Color Lab (110 West 17th Street; 633-9191), which offers white-bordered four-by-six-inch matte prints (36 cents a pop) and full-negative prints (54 cents). Flatiron’s state-of-the-art Noritsu minilab prints even snapshots in luminous clarity.
If you can’t wait the usual day or even hour, try Soho Photolab (395 Canal Street; 274-0365), which promises (in autumn and winter) the extraordinary turnaround time of seventeen minutes upon request. It’s $8 for a roll of 24 and $12 for double prints; for an extra $2, they’ll even throw in a high-resolution index print of all your shots. No wonder all the location scouts come to this end of SoHo for coffee and a cigarette.
