that lab is not back in the day though, it is a lab running today asking those crazy prices. I 5x7 doesn't justify such a ridiculous price. $4.45 for 1 5x7! That's so crazy it's laughable. You can get high quality prints on the same paper that are indistinguishable to their $4.45 print for a small fraction of the price.

but going back in the day, I was actually referring to what the consumer, including hobbyists, had to pay. Getting high quality prints was prohibitively expensive. Thankfully digital has swept away most of the price gouging that went on back then and made photography much more accessible to everyone.

I was in the custom lab business "back in the day". You seem to be one of those people that feel a business should be able to pay for it's equipment by taking money off the tree where it grows in the back yard and pay their people in peanuts.

$4.45 for a 5x7!!!
