Around July 2018 I decided to finally try and get some film developed. I went to the only place I know of near Pittsburgh that actually advertises film developing. Even though Walmart and Walgreen’s I think MIGHT still develop film, I can’t trust them to give me my negatives back. This place was an actual photo shop. However the price was outrageous for what I got, per roll it was like 10$ +tax for develop and scanning. And their “high res” option was 15$ per roll. I should have spent the extra 5$ per roll but I didn’t because I decided to take some very old vacation film of my mom’s and 2 rolls of my own. One of my rolls is shot on Ektar 100. My other roll was shot on an unknown random film that I had lying around. I really think this place is using some kind of cheap amazon film scanner because the noise, at least with Ektar 100, is way worse than it should be. Not to mention almost every single image has fixed pattern digital noise in the form of banding across the images. The raw scan size is 1818x1228, A very strange resolution. Maybe their 15$ “high res” scanning option uses a better scanner but I really need to get these rescanned.
All of these were shot on my Cannon A1. Some shots are very old probably from 2012 or older. If you would like to buy the full size versions of any of my photos, feel free to email me! The images really do need to be rescanned first before I would feel ok with selling them, they just are not the quality they could be. But its up to you! I will post a new article if I ever do get these rescanned.
