    Where can I get Super 8 film developed?

    I have a track of Tri-X Reversal Film 7266 8mm film.
    I was wondering if George's Camera would develop it or if I could just go to Rite Aid or something...

    Dwaynes in Parson's, Kansas will do it.

    Walmart used to be reliable and cheap, because they sent it to Fuji labs. I developed a lot of regular-8mm through Walmart but they ruined the last roll I sent them by routing it to the video transcription department instead of the the development department and exposing it to room light. So don't use Walmart.

    Dwayne's doesn't do black and white reversal film. I have used Pac-Lab (referenced above), and have found their service to be excellent.

    I haven't used them recently, but there's also Yale Lab in LA, and Spectra Film and Video is another good one. Spectra was offering cut down and reperfed Velvia in S-8 at one time with processing. Not sure if they still do it, but it was a good looking film. I think I still have a reel or two in the freezer that I should find a project for.
