    Probably from the time when the industry was switching more to one hour photo.

    If you worked in a large lab in the 1970s or 1980s, this would look quite familiar.

    Too bad they don't have a similar video of an early 1970s Kodachrome line .

    I agree - probably more than 10 years old - could even be 20 - did you notice the prints were not borderless? I think it's been 20 years since I got back prints with borders.

    Well, as I said, notice the APS. When did it come out?

    APS came out in the 90s. I want to say around 1994 or 95. I was working at the camera store at the time. So this would be up to 15 years old.

    And the big 'implosion' of analog was in about 2005.

    I saw this on TV about a month or two ago. I think it was a segment on How it's Made in Discovery Science channel.

    Some of the photos on the rolls were borderless. White borders are still an option these days (dunno why people like them, though) so it'd make sense to keep them all on one roll if that was one of the magic tickyboxes.

    That is correct..a segment of "How It's Made" which is a Canadian produced show, that airs on the Discovery channel (cable tv) in the USA.

    Just think, the video showing the inside of the film processing equipment had to be made with waste film, as it would all be ruined in the lighting required for video or film shooting.

The other side of Canada from here, but one of those iconic images that turns up frequently.

    I'll give them to you: Rocher Percé, which is located in the peninsula of Gaspésie, near the city of Percé.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    My sister in law worked 20 years at a lab like that. It was locally owned, then bought by Konica and then shut down. She gave me cases and cases of outdated color film and plastic frames. I didn't have the heart to tell her I only shoot b&w. I was years giving that cheap film away!

    Part of the process of calibrating and maintaining the large Kodachrome machines required the labs to run film leader through the process, until everything was up to spec. Those rolls of leader were very, very long. Although this is clearly C41, they may be using something similar in these machines during that part of the video.

    P.S. I frequently order prints with borders at my local Walmart one hour photo. It doesn't seem to create any problem for them.
