>lolwut
This guy was pulling my leg, right? I've done photography for years and never heard of dry development. Also, what places still offer 1 hour film development?
>>

I don't know of any 1 hour places, but the cheap places like Walgreens won't give you your negatives back after you wait 2 weeks or whatever.
>>
>>3858262
Thanks for letting me know, I'll not use them in the future. The guy said something about being able to request the negatives back by writing it on the packaging, though since I haven't gotten it back yet I don't know if they'll honor it.
>>
>>3858263
Huh, I didn't know you could request them at all.
I just read that they don't send them back and noped the fuck out.
>>
>>3858265
If this thread is still up in 2 weeks, I'll give you an update to whether or not I get them back. I can see how you'd nope out though, getting prints back as a 1000x1000 JPG on a CD pretty much makes the film process worthless. At that point, you'd be better off using a phone camera.

>>3858262
Their scans are shit, too.

>Dry Development
You can get developer as a powder, fill the tank agitating to make sure there’s no gaps, keep in a cool dry place, usually 24 to 36 hours for it to react fully, hence wet developing is preferred

So are their prints.
I got a few test prints done at a Walgreens a while back, and I was not at all happy with the result.
>>
>>3858250
I'm going to assume that the guy sold his minilab over a decade ago but is willing to mix up some powdered developer real quick for the occasional B&W film.

My local camera store in Belgium sends it off and turnaround is usually 5-7 days. No idea what lab they go to, they come back in a Kodak sleeve but I have no idea if Kodak even has a lab in western Europe these days.
>>
>>3858268
Bump, I want to see if this guy ever gets his negatives back
>>
>>3858250
maybe developped in alcohol? ask them, they would probably tell you
>>
>>3861897
I'm also curious about that.

just post in the /fgt/
