We should always buy film so that demand for it will still be viable for the sellers.
If they see that it is still selling, then they won't discontinue it, however, if they see a small demand for it, then most likely, they will discontinue selling it.
So, we as film users should buy these products so we can still enjoy them for a long time.

My local Wal-mart will "develop only" for about 3 bucks. It's also staffed with people that are also knowledgeable and/or accomplished photographers themselves. In regards to the picture cd's, the resolution is relatively low but it's good enough for posting on facebook. For hi-res scans you'll either need to purchase a good scanner (I own a Minolta negative/slide scanner) or send it out to a lab that does Hi-Res scanning. I send my good 35mm and all my medium format stuff to North Coast Photographic Services, good prices and excellent scans. Good Luck.

Btw, The smell of a freshly opened canister of film is addicting.

The local CVS develops film in the store within an hour for only $2.50 a roll, I was told by a clerk there over the phone. I am going to give it a shot.

Btw, I just sniffed a can of film today.. Ahhhhh!

My local Walmart can develop with CD scan only if you don't like prints.
Good enough for posting on the web then just re-scan on a much higher res when you need to.
I paid less than $4 together with something like a contact print. Not really a contact print but more of like thumbprints of the photos that can actually be printed.
