    A question,

    I am fed up with the quality of all the 1 hour photo processing
    centers that are including their special effects into my pictures.
    Such as bubbles and hairs.

    I have a KODAK processing lab a few miles from my home and
    would like to know if anyone is using KODAK services? Or developing
    film using their pre-paid mailers?

    But then I would have the Post Office as part of the processing procedure.

    Thank's in advance

    Does not make a lot of sense here. You mean that there are no photo shops in
    the area that take in film to be processed and have it go directly to the
    Kodak Lab in your area?
    I do however see your reluctance in having the post office involved. They
    are not all that good with the mail, I would guess that they would really
    screw up the processing of your film?

    I don't know about Kodak services. I know your pain when it comes to
    developing. I've stopped all the 1-hour processing and just have Walgreen's
    send it out to be processed. No problems at all.

    We have a Kodak processing place about 75 miles from here. Five, six,
    or seven afternoons per week, someone from there comes to several
    places around the city (drug stores, grocery stores) and gets film to
    be processed. They bring it back on the afternoon 2 days later
    (normally). That puts the film in Kodak's care, not the post office.
    Some of the pickup places don't do their own processing, but some do
    (like Eckard's drug store). The ones that do their own processing
    (e.g. Eckard's) have envelopes where you tell it to be done by them or
    by Kodak. Kodak processing costs more than Eckard's, etc, but I think
    it is worth it.

    I use the Kodak prepaid mailers for slides if I don't need to get them
    back fast. The problem is that I am in Washington and they have to go to
    New Jersey...so there is almost a week there and then another week back
    here transit time. But I've never had a problem and it's a lot cheaper
    than the local photo shop. Prepaid mailers are less than $5 and my
    local photo shop is $10-11 for a roll of slide film.

    I've worked in a kodak proccesing center.
    And we proccesed a lot of photo's from supermarket chains and other
    chains.
    There is no difference in proccesing or service. Only the amount of
    money paid.
    So find a store that sends their photo's to a kodak center. In Holland
    all Ahold owned supermarkets do for example.

  7. KODAK labs will be much, much better than the drugstore or Walmart stuff.

    The alternative is to go to your local camera store. They will send it to a
    local quality commercial lab - ask for a good one.

    Thank's to all that responded to my post several months ago about
    my disaffection with the 1 hour processing centers, and my return
    to Kodak to process my film.

    I am happy with the work that do with my 35mm, but it been disastrous what
    they do to my 120 medium format film. Fingerprints and scratches on the
    negatives and one roll I brought there once was printed on 4x6 paper.
    Cropped randomly.

    The factory building looks like a remnant of it's glory days. There is
    large piping going in and out of the building, with a power transformer
    bank that has supply wires cut. Kodak sign on the outside, but employees
    ware Qualex badges. They are evasive when I ask if my film is developed
    there. I did smell developer inside once, but now I think it was the
    perfume of the counter person.

    Oh, where am I going to take my film to. I only went to this
    "Kodak" place in NJ (USA) because I live 2 miles away. And my
    dad in the 1970's use to send family film there.

  9. As a Jerseyite, I'm curious as to where in NJ you are referring to.

    As for your problems, go digital.

    It's in Fairlawn, NJ.

    I always thought digital and film could exist together.
    Never could I imagine that the film industry would
    help kill itself.
