    so i just got two rolls of color film developed..$7 each to develop then $1 or each print..5 of the prints were completely black so i dont know why they even bothered...cost me $46...did i just get completely rippedoff?

    i only bought the color film bc i was goingon vacation and they had no b&w film...guess im never buying color again

    Well I'm not sure why they printed and charge you for the ones that had nothing on them.

    This is the main reason I only shoot black and white. Can't afford to pay that, plus I would never let a lab make the prints for me. I don't have a problem with them developing the film but making the prints is at least half the process. With a Holga it's arguably a lot more than half.

    Ask for a refund. That's ridiculous.

    I agree, also alot of people have problems with holga's. I shot a roll and only 4 photos came out and my photo teacher said "thats better then I did my first time."

    I find that getting holga pics to work right requires 400 speed film and either flash, or bright sunlight. If I don't have either of those working for me, I don't bother..

    as far as your price, that does seem pretty high to me, although, probably only by 10-12 bucks or so... I also only shoot b/w in my Holga because of price. I can develop it myself and scan the negatives, which I can't do with color. I think i'd rather shoot color though, because the holga does really cool stuff with color film, but paying 8-12 bucks (developing only) for 12 pictures that may or may not come out isn't in my budget at the moment.
