    Processing 120 Transparency Film at Wal-Mart

    Dropped off 2 rolls of Fuji 120 Provia at Wal-Mart. Ten days later I picked them up. Perfect job by Fuji...sleeved and rolled uncut...protected by a sturdy red cardboard tube.
    Cost $4.88 each.

    Their medium format is cheaper than 35mm.

    I haven't tried slide film developing at Wally world, but the print color film is super cheap. I took in two rolls last month and for 10 pics from by RB, the price was...$1.26 per roll. I have had a few rolls that had a little stuff on the negatives, but most have come out fine. It takes my local Wal-Mart two weeks but for that price I can't hardly develop it myself. Strangely a roll of the same Fuji film in 35mm costs about $7.00 now or so. It used to cost only a couple bucks. I can take 20 pictures with my mf camera and spend about $2.50, or 24 with 35mm and spend over $7.00. You would think it would be the the other way around. I send my 35mm to York and only pay a few bucks.

    any idea on how they process the film? Were there marks on each end of the rolls, noting that they use a dip-n-dunk processor, or if not, a roller-transport?

    just wondering, good price btw

    No idea. But what I find was that they will not push. I got a roll returned.

    You guys are lucky. Last time I presented a roll of 120 for processing to the clerk at the "photo counter" at Walmart, she just looked at me like I was from outer space or something. I'm exaggerating...but, only slightly. I've dropped the last few rolls of family snapshot (35mm) at walgreens but they do such a horrible job, I guess I'd rather not even bother. The clerk at walgreens at least knew what 120 film was but...they claimed that their machine wouldn't/couldn't do it (which I'm pretty sure is BS).

    Wish there were someplace local to have my family snaps processed.

    At the Walmart here 100% of the film, 120 & 135, go out to Fuji.

    Don't let the kid behind the counter touch it.

    Frankly our Walgreens does a very good job. I guess it is better local management.

    Fuji appears to be sending their E6 processing to Dwayne's. I base this on the photo of a Fuji E6 mailer on the B&H Photo website. The address is a PO Box in Parsons, KS, which has to be Dwayne's.

    Sending through Walmart should get you the same processing for a few $$$ less.

    Fuji has a processing center in Portland, Oregon. That's where the film I drop off at Walmart here in Washington State goes.

    At $4.88 for 120 format it is less than half the current price of the prepaid mailers and the required $1.71 postage.

    BTW, they charge me the same price for 220 although I understand some Walmarts charge $6.88.
