Quality/Skilled Film Processing for old/damaged film
Post date: 2021-01-20 10:27:12
I'm looking for recommendations for a place to take some old disposable cameras for developing. I'd like to find someone with a focus on or experience with damaged film, that will be mindful of preserving the images within.
I have rediscovered 5-6 disposable film cameras (standard 35mm) that I thought I lost 15 years ago. They're all about 20 years old at this point, and have not been protected consistently from damage vectors. I don't want to take them to the usual film depots, I want and am happy to pay for a service that will treat it like a restoration project. It's entirely possible there's no salvageable pictures, but I'd rather have an expert who'll treat it with care tell me that. I'm in the LA suburbs, but a mail-in service would also be fine. If it matters, my budget would be in the hundreds, but not the thousands.
