A lot of people, including myself, get their film developed at Walgreens so try it there. Only had one issue with them but it was partially my fault.

Also, a Canon AE-1 is pretty good from what's been said here a couple times.

Walgreens usually takes about 4 hours.
I swear by walgreens, but it all depends on location.

no prints of course.

developing 120 is the worst.
negs uncut, 12 frames, is like 7$+, hours later spent scanning.

I just got my Stylus Epic in the mail. My dad gave me some Kodak Gold (ISO 200) he had leftover.

Where to start?

the 160nc will be okay depending on how well it was stored.
if the 400nc was not cold stored or stored properly, consider it useless.

shoot the ektar and cross process it.

Walgreens in NYC says they take only 1 hour to develop a roll. Is this right?

It's $7.99/roll too. Fuck.
