Sound Off: Does anyone in town still develop film?

A number of places in Lawrence process film. Walgreens, Target, Walmart and CVS can develop and print 35mm negative film. Services vary from store to store on whether they can provide same-day service or the film is sent out for a three- to five-day turnaround.

You may say that, but how many of us find undeveloped rolls around and wonder what's on them from years ago?

I just did that... had pictures from like 1995!! It was really cool to have them developed and be surprised what was on them. I got them processed at Walmart.

Not really if you want it professionally done, but you can always go to CVS of something like that, I was sad to see Image Works go, now I have to drive to Kc to get mine developed, anything else that might be really old and use a different chemical I send to a lab in Parsons or even Colorado. Though I mostly use 120 slide film. I often will buy cameras at yard sales and what not just to get the film developed. If I feel the camera back was never opened after the film was loaded. The most interesting stuff I found was alot of nice shots from a USO show in the Pacific theater

Walgreens still develops 35mm & APS film same day. We have two here in Lawrence one @ 23rd and Louisiana (785-832-8188) & one @ 6th & Kasold (785-841-5400)!

And yes people still buy and use 35mm film or one time use cameras.

Pearl River tlr chinese knock offs are actually quite literally a bomb.

IIRC, "Instamatic" was a Kodak term, not a Polaroid one.

Sorry countrygirl but Wolfe's has no repair service. They can evaluate problems and send a camera to a service center. The only area repairman I know of is Phototronics in Topeka at Kansas Ave. and 24 Highway.

Downtown weston has a small repair shop, and lots of cameras.
