If you are like many other people, you may have used film developers in the past, but have not visited them since you got your new digital camera. Though you think of them mostly as companies that develop film from non-digital cameras, you should know that there is much more to them today, and that you should probably consider going back to see what they can do for you. Like others, they have adapted with the times rather than going quietly into the night as the use of film went down for the average camera user.
You can still get help with your film through your traditional film developers. They still do the same thing for you, and they may even have time to do it more quickly as they have less film to deal with. However, they can also still sell you cameras and other accessories. You may not want a film camera, and that is okay. Most of the film developers out there have added digital cameras and their various accessories to their inventories to keep up with the popular digital format.
You can also go to your local film developers with your digital prints. They can print them for you, and as with film pictures, they can make any enlargements that you want. The same can not be said for many of the home printers you use for you digital pictures. Most self service kiosks can only print out 8 by 10 at the most. If you want something larger, go into your local film developers to see if they offer you help with your digitals. In most cases, you will be pleased to know that they do. They may even carry hard to find frame sizes for those larger prints you want.
Film developers can still do some of the same services that they offered when most pictures were from film. They can try to repair damage to a special picture, and they can even do touchups that will make your favorite picture nearly perfect. Not only can you still find these film developers in the malls like you could before, they still have stores in the cities as well. You can also find online versions of these that can do most of the above stuff through the mail or through your Internet connection if you wish. You can send some things through digitally, and they then return your order to you through the mail quickly and with little fuss.
