Are there any brick-and-mortar places you can still get C41 process-only (and get your dang hell negs back!) without having to pay specialist prices?
Walgreens stores all use a send-out service now that returns a CD and nothing else (which seems like it should be straight-up illegal), just like Wally World. Paying ten bucks for C41 development from a professional lab or a mail-order place irks me. I've been spoiled by the $1.79 process-only option at most minilabs, and I just can't justify paying $15 or more total shoot cost when I'm not getting slides back. I know a pro lab will give me perfect color every time, but I'm not paying the bills with these and I have a scanner, calibration targets, and Photoshop.
PS: I'm located in Houston, TX.
