    Kodachrome at dwaynesphoto, how long?

    I sent over my first film ever of Kodachrome last Friday and is not back yet. It was a really good experience to find colorful subjects, and I am sure the photos are crap but still can't wait to see them! Does someone that uses him thinks this is to long of a wait? I ordered the $5 CD also, believe that was 4 business days? I am not sure how people that develop lots of Kodachrome do this if it takes that long, is it because I am a new customer? I must have screwed up with the form credit card info maybe?

    It's only been a week. Patience.

    My guess is that they do batches as film builds in quantity sufficiently, so it may be several days between batches at times.

    I have 5 rolls to send (I'm mailing them home from Newfoundland to Saskatchewan first to save them the x-rays from airport security) and I expect it'll take 3 weeks or more in my case. You didn't state what country you're in which of course will make a difference, too.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    Depending on where you're located you should count transit time. The CD adds 3 business days I think. If you hadn't selected the CD you would have it. I'm guessing most people don't get the CD because they aren't very good anyhow. If you figure a couple of days transit each way for regular mail, and 4 business days, I wouldn't expect to have it back in a week.

    It's not that bad if you get the 1 business day turnaround on developing without the CD.

    Dwaynes makes a very good job with my K14 slide film. Give them a try. Kodachrome slide film is great.
    My turnaround time from SouthAmerica ( Chile) goes around between 10 to 14 days, I sent my K14 slide film, around 60 rolls per year, to Dwaynes ,since A&I closed in 2004 his K14 process machine. Dwaynes makes every time an excellent job.

    Just count yourself lucky you don't live here in NZ... Exchange rate kills me, plus a week to get the film to Dwayne's, then a week to get it back, last time I foolishly ordered the CD and that took an extra week...

    I'm in the UK, and it's usually somewhere in the region of 14 days turnround.
    This is the process-prepaid film, which we post in the supplied mailer to Kodak, Switzerland, who courier the films to-and-from Dwaynes, then post back.
    UK Royal Mail say to allow up 3 days each way for mail to Swizerland, so the film is with Kodak/Dwaynes about a week including its two trip across the pond. Assuming that Dwaynes work a 5-day week, the film can't be in the lab for more than a couple of days or so.
    I'm happy with that timing....on the rare occasions my pics are more urgent, I just use E6 at local lab or processed myself.

    From here in California, it typically takes about six days to get slides back from Dwayne's. And that assumes I don't do anything that will take extra time, like getting a CD or push processing. I would think that the turnaround time (plus shipping) should be similar from New York.

    Something must have gone wrong with the Post Office. I would get online tracking next time for only $0.62. From Massachusetts, it takes 5 days for one roll to be sent out and to come back to me. I would give Dwayne's a call and ask them if they even receieved it. Dwayne's is usually super speedy!
