Film: Where to get it and How to get it developed
Where to get it
- Your local grocery store. These places usually have just the cheap-o Kodak Gold/UltraMAX or Fujifilm Superia color stuff (bleah). I would discourage this, honestly, as you can get much better films for better prices online.
- The Internet! My favorite place is Freestyle Photo (http://freestylephoto.biz), which has the best prices that I can find on most films.
How to get it developed
If you can find a lab in your area that develops film, great! Only check the prices, a lot of local labs can charge a lot. My go-to place to send film used to be my (semi-) local lab in Boise, Idaho Camera. But then I went off to Colorado for college, and discovered that Dwayne's Photo (one of the most respected labs in the U.S.) in Kansas charges about half as much. Since I would have to ship my film for development anyway, I've decided to just keep using Dwayne's.
