Last time I used Kodak the films were never returned.
Disappeared into the ether. Not the first time this
happened. After much effort and multiple calls (and
this is maybe 2 years ago, when Kodachrome was still
being produced) I managed to convince the person on
the other side of the line that they did indeed make
something called Super 8 film. It was a long and
painful process that, at one point, involved someone
hanging up on me on purpose even though I remained
completely calm throughout the whole grueling affair.
Anyway, I eventually found a woman who claimed to be
the manager and she promised to send me replacement
rolls (3 of them) for the ones they lost. About 2
weeks later a package from Kodak showed up with 3
rolls of slide film. Totally insane. I've never
sent them another roll.
That said, I've never been particularly satisfied with
Dwayne's. The colors seemed flat for some reason. I
would say that I've had maybe 25-35 rolls processed
there. On a few occasions the films were returned
with major emulsion scratches on the left side of the
frame. This once occured with all 6 reels that I
sent. I shot a B+W roll and gave it to Pac Lab. It
came back fine, which means that it wasn't my camera.
Still, I'd rather support Dwayne's and have my film
returned than have it remain in limbo, or
