Photochemical Prints?

Thanks, all. The photo paper is Kodak...can't imagine the alternative if this is considered high quality. I don't have any clout but I do know a few executives at Kodak and an old film guy at Fuji- I'm interested in what they say about the change, maybe can offer a workaround. And I'm looking forward to trying the labs recommended here.

Pardon my ignorance if this provokes verboten endorsement of services but would love to hear from those who are in the know. Exhausted and frustrated by trial and error.

I am shooting lots of 35mm slide film, getting the full package of scans and slides and prints. Within the last 6 months, the prints are now coming on flimsy "digital print" paper and have all the fortitude of a good photocopy. Would love to have the same lengthy conversation with the photo lab as I do with my motion picture lab but it is not to be. So I'm thinking of switching.

My question: is any lab out there still using photochemical print paper or (gasp) actually photochemically printing?

Thank you!

What is this thing in my viewfinder?

Thanks, everyone, for the thoughtful replies. Indeed, this seems to affect [only? primarily?] the cameras built in the 1990s; there's a new-in-box 1990s model available on eBay and even it has this problem.

I think there is now enough evidence to support my just letting it be. It's taken 26 years for it to get this bad and the photos/enjoyment of this particular camera body are worth putting up with my little hydra friend (the attached taken using my recent preferred film, Fuji Velvia).

Cheers,
Elena

Hey, everyone,

I am still shooting 35mm, using my beloved K1000 purchased in 1993. About 10 years ago, an alien thing started growing inside. It's not showing on the photos but has definitely creeped upward over the years. On the prism maybe? I know this has likely been covered here before but give it to me straight: how can I get rid of it? Please keep in mind this is my baby; if I have to, I'll deal with the alien thing rather than replace the body.

Thanks!
