Film Developing

If anyone ever uses film, like I do, you can send it out for developing to :

The Darkroom.   You can get some different, and hand rolled film.

Check out their website.

They do a really nice job developing and printing.



I am a non-paid spokesman.

Good to know, thanks. I used to use film a lot and sometimes go back to it as I still have a couple film cameras that are hardly used anymore.

Thanks! It is nice to have a source...just in case. Also nice to have a reference for anyone who might ask. You wouldn't believe the things people ask me (legitimate questions).Surprised

So, I’m trying something different. I have a TDC stereo camera. Usually, you would use slide film, develop it, and cut the individual images and place the correct pairs in a frame. Then view the slides through a lighted viewer. What I just sent out for processing was regular, color negative film, and had a set of prints made. The up charge is the same as using a half-frame camera. I’ll take the pairs and mount them on cards that I cut. If I like the outcome, I will use this camera as my film camera on the Escape. Then I’ll have a second set of prints made, and make them available along with a viewer. They can be mailed around. When the project is ready I’ll ask for addresses from those of you that have my e mail. If you don’t have my e mail, we will figure out a way to get it to me.


Wal Mart

WalMart sends their film out for processing.

I doubt they even have an option for what essentially becomes a 1/2 frame camera. WalMart also won’t do 120, 110 cartridges, E6 (slide ), or anything else unusual. They might process single use cameras.

The Darkeoom will even process 8/16/ and super 8 movie film

Last time I sent a roll of film to WalMart for processing, they pretty much destroyed half of itAngry

About all they are good for is printing digital pics.

I haven't used film in years. Thanks for the information for those who still use it.

I am fortunate that we still have an old fashioned camera shop. He does 80% of his own developing. He does send out the slide processing. Thanks for the info Bak, something I can definitely use when in Alaska.
