"The problem is the rig is unnecessary, at any price. It's like building a robot to tie your shoes or putting adding another handle on a suitcase that already has a handle." That's not exactly true. While the auction in question is kind of rough looking and probably overpriced, there's nothing wrong...

I'm in Florida. Just to confirm, the K40 with mailer included is no longer available from Kodak, correct? I understand the mailer is still available separately, but I'm just trying to figure out the cheapest way. At this point it looks like I'll use my student discount on 5 rolls of K40 and get it p...

Thanks for the links. The one with 'scott's' instructions is pretty concise and helpful. I guess I'll give that a try - hopefully my local Wal-Mart will take care of it correctly.

The guy in the photo lab seemed to know nothing about S8 film, and asked me how many exposures it would be 8O After talking with another employee, he told me to write under 'Special Instructions' on the envelope what I needed done. He claimed to not know how much it would...

Thanks for the link. I heard I can get a student discount through Kodak, though (20%). I think it would still be cheaper to order it from them, if I get 5 rolls or more. Does the pre-paid mailer include postage there and back? Also, I read that Kodak had discontinued the production of the film with ...

K40 vs B&W processing/buying

I'm new to Super 8, and I'm about to buy some film. My project will be in black and white, so I had originally planned to use Tri-X or Plus-X film. However, it seems like I can't drop this off at Wal-Mart. Any other development would run at least $9 not including shipping, right? In that case, I wou...
