Need help for developing analogue films
Posted December 30th, 2012 - 6:47 pm by from Leipzig, Germany (Permalink)
Hello everybody!

In the moment I am on a longer trip, next week I will fly to India. But I am a bit scared of the scanners at the airport. So I want to develop all the films I used till now, so I can send the negatives to Germany. I found out, that there is only one place in Istanbul, where this is possible, near the old town. I think you photographers of Istanbul know this place.
I went to this place before and asked for the price of a lenscap, but I think because I am a foreigner, they told me a price, that is much to high (16 Lira). I think, if I go there, asking for developing my films, I would pay much too much.
What is the normal price per film for developing only negatives (black&white and color, 35mm format and middle format)?
So my question now is, whether anybody can help me, maybe going with me to this stores.

Greetings,

Felix

And another idea: if someone lends me his developer box and I pay for the chemicals, at least I can develop the B&W films on my own!

Felix I've also replied your pm but here is the open info for the group;

I havent gone to a photo lab for years, as I'm using digital cameras since 2005. But I also shoot bw films and therefore I have spirals and developing tank. I'm just not sure if I can find the thermometer. But if you would like to buy chemicals you sure can use as long as you need and give them back.

Anyway we can also make a visit to see about which stores do film process together. Let me know which day, time?
