    Hello,
    Years ago I belonged to a club that provided free film as long as I processed the film with them. But since it has been around 15 or so years ago I don't remember the name . Does anyone know of any such companies left out there? If my memory serves me correctly I think that company was in the Northwest, Seattle?

    Thanks, AT

    Wow, I think there was once a place called Seattle Film Works, or something similar. They used cine film, or so I have been told, which is not really the best choice for this type of use, but it seemed good enough for the casual user at the time. I knew people who used those guys, but I don't think that they are still around. At any rate, with the slow down in film demand I've not seen anyone doing this for some time now...

    Last time I saw one of them, it was actually a camera shop in Denver, was in the late 70's to early 80's. Since I shoot 35mm, films not all that expensive anyway. Oh well, day's gone by....

    There's no free lunch. Even if you find some lab offers this bundle you have to know that they are building the cost of the film into their price.
