    35mm Film Processing

    I have a bunch of rolls of 35mm film that I need to take in for processing.  Normally I'd just take it to Wal-Mart, but they have steadily been raising their prices.  To those of you that still develop 35mm film, where do you take yours for processing?  Also, does anyone mail theirs off for processing?  If so, who do you use?  I have a digital camera as well, but still like to take "film" pictures sometimes.

     I was using York when I had a camera with film that needed developing.

    Have you tried looking at K-mart's prices ?

    Back when I was in college in Georgia I wouold get film developed there, but I didn't have 35 mm film. It was fairly cheap.

    Brandy, thanks for the info on York.  I'll compare the prices w/Wal-Mart.

    VA Needlewoman, thanks for the suggestions but unfortunately I don't have a K-Mart in my area.

    Re: 35mm Film Processing

    It has been awhile since we've taken 35 mm pictures. I do know that our local Wal-Mart/K-Mart did have a "goof-proof" policy. After the film was developed, and prints paid for I would open the packet and go through each print. Every print that I didn't like for whatever reason was refunded. The clerk at the photo dept would give me maybe $.17 a print for each one I didn't want. That way I didn't have pictures that were "goofy" from a finger over the lens, blurred, etc. The photo lab will not tell you they have this program, nor did they post a notice anywhere, but when I mentioned the "goof-proof" refund policy they always came through. You might mention this if you have your photos developed at K-mart or Wal-Mart.

    Darlene, thanks for the reminder.  I'm pretty sure that our local Wal-Mart does the "goof proof" policy as well.  I'll have to check w/them!
