Cartridge film processing

Can anyone help in identify where this type of film can be processed now. This is a friendís cartridge that they come across and want to get developed, but most stores they have tried cannot help in getting it developed. So i thought i would ask on here to see if there is someone who might know when they could send it. I asked how old it was and they told me that the pictures were taken in the late 70's early 80's..... Did say that the film may be no good by now.

Re: Cartridge film processing

You will have to get a specialist lab to do this I think. There ought to be places that can do it, but it will be expensive as they will probably have to do it by hand.

Re: Cartridge film processing

Looks like its from one of these old instamatic type cameras

I found some old instamatic type cartridges recently, I think it was a Kodak C 110 type cartridge (maybe A different number) it was nearly 30 yrs old. Took it into our local Boots the chemist store, the young assistant looked at it and said what the heck is that, fortunately the older lady beside her recognised it. They developed and got me some prints from it, quality was terrible but after scanning and touching up in CS 3 some of them became recognisable It was fun reminiscing. Got some more to try later.

Worth popping in to Boots for a try, they warned me it would take around 3 weeks because of the format, maybe they sent it to a specialist. You got nothing to lose by asking.

Try dlab7.com or Peak Imaging in Sheffield.They both develop 120 roll film and they specialise in older types of film.

The company I use for old film may be of help...
Professional Colour Laboratory in Manchester...

Phone 0161 832 5663 (Last known number)

http://www.professional-colour.co.uk/

On the left hand side, there is a link for "Film processing", they accept all major film makes, I suspect they would take that film.... I know they take film for Box Brownie's, 'cos I used them a short while back to do mine.

At the moment, they are going through a merger with another company, but that isnt stopping them working..

The film... I used to use that many years back, if I remember...I think its from a Kodac Instamatic camera... or one of the variants... the camera looked something like this...




(Picture from google..) that used either Kodak 126 or 127 film, cartridge type, easy to use for those who didnt understand film reels, like Kids....

Re: Cartridge film processing

Update, ---- Managed to get the film developed from Peak Imaging in Sheffield, good turn around time for processing and good service.

Negatives revealed that 50% of the shots taken on this film were good enough to print, not bad seeing the cartridge was 20+ years old
