    Walmart no longer processes 35mm...what should I use now?

    My local minilab (CVS) has a bad track record with me, and I'm not sure how to find a better one without risking film.

    I used to send out my color prints using Walmart, the benefit being the quality was good, and they would discount me prints I did not want. However, my walmart no longer processes 35mm film.

    I now need a way to get 35mm developed and either basic scans or basic prints, at a reasonable price. Is snapfish still operating? Any good labs where I can get development and 3x5 prints for a reasonable price (<$20 for a roll)?

    Any other drugstores in the area, like Walgreen's? I know all my local Walgreen's still process for a decent price, but I'm not sure if they do 3x5 prints...

    There is a walgreens almost as close as the CVS. I guess I can try that; I'm just kind of gun-shy now. I used to live near a Target and always liked their work.

    I use TheDarkroom for much of my film. I don't get prints. Just development and scanning. They have basic scans and enhanced scans. I usually go with basic but have used enhanced when I thought I'd want to do large prints from the files vs. negatives.

    For quickies like camera or lens tests I use CVS - mine is quite good, or Walgreens - also quite good but twice as expensive.

    Target does a commendable job, though I can't speak in general. I use one location and have gotten to know the people there. A dollar to process, $2.50 if you want a CD, which I usually get.

    On a side note, I started processing my own C-41 this year -- much easier than I thought.

    Your most economical option is to go this route. It is in fact, dead-simple.

    I develop most of my own. But I have also used both Blue Moon Camera (great results) and NCP (equally great results.) Those are my go-to color labs. Although I rarely send out black and white anymore, when I do it always goes to dr5.com. They are a bit pricier but they always develop exactly the way I want. I think they are also an APUG supporter.
