    Wallgreens markets film!

    for those of you who didn't know, well apparently they do, (color) i shot a roll for just for fun and it came out nice and sharp :O it is tinted a little bit weird so you will have to adjust your color pack accordingly, but other than that its not to bad, not sure who manufactures it though

    I think most of us here have decided that this is Fuji material.

    I think my local walgreens process film too. They are one chain still in. CVS is still going with film at most of the stores.

    That is very unusual. My local CVS even sells Tri-X!

    The CVS around here charges around 6 bills for 24 ex tri x but they DO stock it along with several of the consumer Kodak color films. Teey also have a C41 line

    The wahlgreens nearby processes 35mm C41 for $ 2.35usd but I don't think they see enough action to have a stable line. I'm afraid to try it. The rebadged 35mm color material they sell says "Made in Japan".

    CVS just increased the Tri-X price from $4.99 to $6.49! At all of the CVS around me, for just developing of a 36exp roll, it is $0.99 if I recall. I use this fairly frequently to test a camera or see what is on a roll of film if I find one hanging around. They do clean processing in my area. I wouldn't trust anything important there but they arn't that bad.

    I work in the photo department at Walgreens. I will tell you that if you are doing mini-lab processing, find a Noritsu QSS store. They are much MUCH better than the Fujis. If your lab is a dry lab with the NexLab printer but has a film processor, then that will be Noritsu. The colors and contrasts come out so much better. Interesting about the S35 film. I'll have to check that out tomorrow and maybe throw some in my camera for a trial.

    When Walgreens changed their film source, I carefully inspected the negatives and it was most definitely Fuji.

    All Walgreens around here still process film.

    A new CVS near where I work has a brand-new shiny film processor, a Noritsu it appears, and is committed to processing film. They quoted me something like $3.95 for a DO/CD so I will definitely try them.
