A local one-hour lab where I work will develop and print B&W in just 60
minutes.  They use a machine with high-speed Ilford chemistry to develop B&W
in a few minutes.  Their printing equipment is matched to the developing
equipment, so when they make prints from the developed negatives, it all
looks okay; but when I have them develop the film and I try to scan it
myself, I get really, really bad results (heavy grain, images way, way too
light).  I finally started developing my own B&W, given that it's pretty
easy, and now I get extremely nice scans--way less grain, and much smoother
tones and better distributed luminosities.  What a difference!
