    I've seen their price list at stores in Central Illinois. Before they put this out, I had switched to a small chain store (6 or 8 stores total) for my E-6 because they turned it around faster and it was worth it to me to pay a few extra bucks to get my slides back quicker. I get develop and mount + scans (and they don't charge extra for pushing film!) for $11.88, tax included. Judging from this price list, I would be paying almost as much through Walmart for just develop and mount!
    ME Super

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    The problem that I have with them is that they are not able to raise the enlarger to remove [crop] the black edge from the film clamp for Hasselblad prints. So I take my 120 film to Samys in Culver City instead.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    The repeated problems that I had with Dwaynes was dirty negatives for a while. They were able to improve on that by rpll after roll of film with explicit directions NOT to adjust the color, they would print the red rock as green rock because they thought that they knew better. That meant that I would have to pay to ship every thing back to be reprinted while they would kindly forgot to reimburse me for my postage.

    The reimbursements, even though requested, I determined after many telephone calls to complain where ignored because those people in Kansas are illiterate. After I quit using them I wrote a strong letter and finally some of my additional postage was returned. They asked me to give them a chance and I told them that they had messed up so many times, that they did not deserve a second chance. They never got one either.

    Well I have to say the ONLY thing they are good at is chemistry control, and printing from digital files you have color corrected yourself. That's it... NEVER have them scan images or print film ... they are just awful at it... truly I agree... just like I couldn't even describe how bad... haha

    I've been to the lab, I've seen them, they are quite specific about the chemistry work they do, and the printing itself from files you send in with the MeridianPro software which is them...), but the rest, don't bother.

    Did you run a pro lab or speak to the owner of a pro lab recently? My local pro shop owner told me a very different story. He points the finger directly at digital. He never mentioned Walmart. As far as I know send out services of all kinds have existed my entire lifetime. For most of their existence they coexisted quite happily with pro labs. I frankly use both. If a pro uses Walmart for their film developing they deserve to go out of business. That would be insane. I can't imagine anyone that values their professional reputation doing that.



    I've never seen anyone on this forum make such a claim. Please post a link to the source of this claim so we can get in on that deal. The cheapest I've found is $4.88 (plus tax) for 220 roll of E-6. Sadly I can no longer obtain 220 rolls of E-6 at reasonable prices so the best I can muster at the moment is $4.88 (plus tax) roll for 120 E-6.

    Well here's one example... I am still looking for the one I found that said .88 cents but he literally posted his receipt image so it wasn't even made up .... but here's another one that's close... (EDIT at sams club) last post...

    Oh here... this APUG guy said .84 cents...

    I believe $0.84 is for one roll of C-41 120 films. One roll of E6 120 films is $4.88.

    I'd think they helped shut down the one-hour places, not the pro labs.

    However, that is what walmart does. Undercut the competition until it is gone, then raise prices. I beleive they sometimes thin out thier own stores in a region once enough competition is gone - so people then have to travel further.

    I agree but the title does say E-6 and the poster who mentioned the 84 cents doesn't specify it's anything other than what the OP asked about. But he probably messed up, still, heck it cost me $4:50 for a roll of C-41 in 120 so 84 cents would be a steal... if they actually sent you your film back... lol

    fuji and dwaynes told me
    120 film they WILL return with the prints
    and if you plan on paying the lowest price ...
    you have to REFUSE THE PRINTS
    because they have no process only service.

    Yes, they do. I did 120 C-41 through Walmart sendout several times (as late as mid. Feb. this year).
