Guys. I went to walgreens to try to get the Kodak 4oo iso b and w film developed. And they couldn't find anywhere on the cartridge that it's a film they can develop and said that it's not a common film so they can't. Are they correct? I thought the mx uses a common 35mm film.

Walgreen's only develops C-41 film as far as I know. Your 400TX film uses different chemicals to develop, which are not the common C41 chemicals, even though both are the same format, or size: 35mm.

You want to find a good lab anyway LeDave, I'm sure there is one or more there. Ask the professor. It will be better quality anyway. Are you eventually going to learn BW developing in the class?

Yes we will learn BW developing in project 7, right now we are only on project 3. I didn't shoot my Pentax MX yet for school projects, I'm just testing it out and shooting for fun. They want 25 bucks at National Camera Exchange, eek. But oh well, I guess like what builttospill said, it's not common. So that's probably why it costs so much.

LeDave, that can't be right...negatives and scans should cost you all of $10 or $11. Prints are prolly what's jacking the price up so high. You ought to be able to get out with everything for around $20. (Don't know why, but $25 sounds too high, even though it's only $5 more than I'm getting tagged). I'd keep looking for another local lab were I you.

Best,
Kevin
