    Maybe Terrell, Texas.

    Kodachrome processing via Walmart & Fuji is less than $7.00/36 exp. roll plus local sales tax. That's cheaper than the postage going directly to Dwayne's.

    Oh, I thought it was mild sarcasm. I read that one very wrong.

    Having visited Terrell one weekend twenty years ago when I was 16, I honestly believed it was 1949 and remember sitting on a porch around a bunch of locals where some pretty nasty talk came from their mouths. It shocked me, and it's how I forever remembered the place: slow, backwards, neo-antebellum (if such a concept could exist). If I went back there now, I'm fairly sure my mere presence would get the town sheriff to tell me to best leave by sundown if I knew what was good for me. Or something like that. -_-

His response was "I don't know film at all, maybe someone else here can help you". I told him that I was not asking for some right at the moment, but rather that I would like them to order some for me. He just shrugged his shoulders and turned back to arranging the film in the little case they have for it. What a tool.
    What do you guys think is more profitable to a camera shop? Selling 35mm rolls of film or new digital cameras and memory cards every 1-2 years?
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Without seeing sales margins and sales sheets, wouldn't the consumables make a greater profit as based on proportion of that item's cost going to the dealer? For digital bodies, wouldn't there be a kind of rush to the bottom to compete against competitors whose margins are also very limited given that the manufacturer or distributor probably sells them at similar per unit prices.

    What's probably more profitable are the in-house service contracts they sell for these digital devices and profit from used lenses and other used gear.
