Cheapest processing for mystery film?

  1. So, I've got a bunch of old mystery film in my fridge. I have no idea whether it will come
    out, so I want to get it processed CHEAP. Has anyone done the comparison shopping to
    see who has the cheapest? I'm thinking negatives only a target/walmart/cvs type place.

    Thanks,
    Adrian
     
  2. first Q, is it c-41?
     
  3. Go to any 1-hour place that will let you have only negatives done (no prints) No use sending them out (or letting the local place send them out) Have them cut the negs in strips and put in sleeves. Usually costs $2-3 each roll.
     
  4. Zachariah says it all. Most places do not accept film canisters
    without "C-41" so if for instance it says "process CNK" only
    (Konica's C41 equivalent) you shouldn't even bother to shoot it.
     
  5. Yes, I should have been clearer. It's all c-41. And it's all exposed. What is a mystery is
    what's on it.
     
  6. My local walmart charges just under $2 bucks for putting a roll though the machine and giving it back without prints.
     
  7. Wal-Mart does process only (no prints) for $1.79 including tax, per roll, in my area (southern New Jersey)....and a really nice job at that. CVS in my area sucks. Never tried Target.
     
  8. I'd watch the Sunday newspaper ads. Sometimes Walgreens & Target run 2 for 1 specials on their processing. Wal-Mart does it as well.
