There is a great difference between an enlarger costing $2500.00 and a Lambda costing 1/2 million. Your photo lab is going to charge more because someone has to pay for this machine. In the old days you could use an enlarger for thirty years. It paid for itself many times over. A Lambda or any other such printer has to be paid off within 5 years. Technology changes too quickly for a lab to poke around paying for it. Jim Davis www.visual-artists.com/paper - Please: Stay on topic.
