Where's the best place to get my film developed and scanned? I just took my first roll to Walgreens and they pumped it out at 1545x1024 for $11. Below is one of the only probably 2 salvageable shots so it was good for just practice, but I'd like to get higher res when I finally figure out how to best use this old geezer.
I take mine to Walgreens, mainly because they're the closest and cheapest place that does it in-store. There's an independent camera shop in town too that does a better job and at a higher resolution, but it takes them longer and they're more expensive and more of a drive so I usually just settle for Walgreens.
What I would LOVE is a place I mail my rolls to and have them develop them and scan them and then let me download the results. Anybody know of anyplace offering such a service?
There are lots of places that do the developing and scanning, but they all seem to want to sell me prints or charge a ton for a disc. After all that, I'd end up paying twice as much as I do at Walgreens but waiting days and days for it. The only upside I see is higher resolution, or at least the option for it. When I had a bunch of rolls after vacation I used mpix and it made sense because I could get more than one roll on a disc, but if I just have one roll it's too expensive to go that route.
