Newbie alert... Took a few rolls with my new camera. Used point & pray cameras my whole life, and even I knew that the drug store devleoping was no good. But the closest pro shop was $14 a roll, so I opted for Ritz Camera at $9. I can't complain about the prints - in my experience they are great compared to any I ever had developed at the CVS. For giggles I scanned in one of the negatives to see if it could be done on my scanner. I quickly gave up though, after seeing the smudges: How did they get a print from this? What the heck did they do to it? And most importantly, have I lost this forever now?
