Film Info:

I've been trying to find film for cheap. Specially Polaroid 600 so far the cheapest in-store is Wal-Mart at $15. But packs of Polaroid 600 are cheaper on Amazon.com. Wal-mart also sells 110 film around $1.25 - $2.00 (Yes I still own 110 film cameras). But to get your 110 film processed it has to be sent out, and pretty soon so will 35mm. I imagine a lot of photo processing places are turning into digital processing places specially those in pharmacy and grocery stores. And some specialty film processing stores are going out of business. While a lot of us still like to use film whether all the time or some of the time we are loosing the basics of film. Like rotary negatives film is slowly going out of style. If people promoted to this generation's teens who like taking myspace shots with Polaroids while wearing big sunglasses and owl necklaces the history of film would be preserved. Yes we can get some of the same looks of film with photoshop but it's hardly ever the same and some people either make you pay or won't give up their secrets to how they got their digital photos to look like 35mm. We must preserve the production, usage, and development film and film cameras. Please don't give up on film.

You can purchase cameras (digital or film), accessories and 35mm film in a lot stores:
Rite Aid
47st Photo
Fry's Electronics
Best Buy
