Films... [Aug. 9th, 2007|08:02 pm]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |worriedworried]

Today, I went to Boots to drop off 6 35mm films for developing.

“35mm?” I hear you cry... “I thought you had a digital camera”

Well, I do... these films could be anything around 12 years old. I cannot remember what is on them, and I cannot remember with any accuracy how old they are.

I pre-warned the lass at Boots that I don’t know what’s on them, in case they contain any compromising images... I can’t be certain that they don’t, ‘cos I don’t remember what’s on them.

I’ll find out on Monday when I go and collect the CD’s... I didn’t want prints, only digital images. I’m really intrigued as to what’s on these films. I’ve moved house up to 6 times in the last 12 years, so it could be absolutely anything!!

I've had Tesco develop film onto CD a few times now and each time I've been really disappointed with the quality of the results. They have always seemed washed out colour wise compared the the prints I had done at the same time.

Would you recommend Boots as an alternative?

I've never had a problem with Boots' film processing. Back when Boots started doing film processing, they used to stick QC stickers on photos to identify problems with the pictures.

For example, you'd have a blurry picture - camera shake - yeah? So they'd stick a QC sticker on it saying "This picture is blurry, try to reduce camera shake"

Like, duh!

But yes, I would recommend Boots as an alternative.

I have another film that needs developing so I think I'll give them a go.
