let me suggest you to process the whole B&W stuff by yourself, from A to Z.
For color processing I suggest you find some really good professional C-41
lab, maybe one of those that still are processing manually and then get a
Durst Printo processor and some not so expensive color enlarger. you could
be using the same color head as a variable contrast head when printing black
and white.
Don't mess with processing C-41 by your own, no way. Not cheap, not
