When in Caernarvon earlier this year I took a shot of a touristy shop that still had a large, old sign above the door saying simply "Films". I had it in mind to take such photos whenever I see them but I haven't seen any others since.
They process instant cameras! Does that mean disposables? And "rolled film"?? I am assuming these terms are some of the differences between US and UK english (I am British btw) otherwise it would not inspire confidence in the processing service
Martin... I suspect that the message writer is neither American nor British in origin. By "rolled" they mean 35mm cassette and by "instant" they indeed mean disposable. When one lives in a multi-cultural, multi-lingual society then one needs to be a bit forgiving with regard to language skills. ... and add to that "multi-generational"... in many camera stores today they've only "heard about" film before.
Oh, fair enough. Through the ambiguity I was wildly optimistic that they had a machine for 120 too. The last place I saw a one-hour type place that did 120 as well as 135 was in Arles - and they did an extremely good job too.
Slightly connected, I went to the local supermarket (in my medium sized town 160k people) and heard the cashier slip in to English to another customer. I asked about that (in Dutch of course) and she said that to work on the till you had to speak at least Dutch, German and English . . . I was surprised somewhat!
