    Another one bites the dust

    Cameras, Inc., is closing.

    http://www.yourarlington.com/busines...-cameras-32612

    Somehow I am not entirely surprised. One of the more film-friendly places. I used the Somerville shop sometimes for C-41. Turnaround times for processing kept getting longer and longer--they used to be same day, then next day, then two days, etc.

    Hunt's - Melrose

    I was in Hunt's in Melrose this past weekend. In my opinion, they have next to nothing for film anymore. It seemed most of the 120 rolls were Ilford, with smaller quantities of Kodak and Fuji in B&W behind the counter. They're pretty much all-digital now.

    They used to have a display in the front of the store that had all kinds of odd films (brands I had never heard of at the time), some outdated, all that, gone...

    Pickings are slim there, but I still try and buy from them when I can. They have (had?) some Velvia 50 expired 4x5 for $20 for 10, I bought 5 the last time I was there.

    They do keep stuff like dektol and hc110 in stock at reasonable prices too.

    I've mostly bought film at Hunt's in the past, but after last weekend, it's probably not worth making the trip anymore.

    Sad these places close, but the internet still seems to be a strong source. Ironic, I know, that the digital stores have analog photography and the brick and mortars are selling tech gear.

    I'll probably get future B&W film online. Color film is not really a problem, I can get that anywhere locally.

    John,
    I go back to around '78, but you must be talking about an earlier time. Sanford's is down the road about 1/2 mile from Cameras Inc. I think they are still in business as a sort of group shop. The actual technicians are sub-contractors to Sanford's and work on their own within the shop. Nothing to do with Cameras Inc.

    Blue Ribbon BBQ is between the two shops, closer to Camera's Inc.
