Default Cheapest place for processing disposable cameras??

Hi

Can anyone tell me if they have used anywhere to develop the films from disposable cameras??

I have about 10 from a wedding last year that I promised to do as a wedding present and totally forgot!! Whoops!

Any ideas of costs etc.

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Directfoto (mail order) are very cheap indeed and you get a free film which each film/camera which you get processed.

I can't find details on their website so you would be best finding one of their envelopes - I'm away from home right now or I'd post some details.

We used them recently to process a disposable camera and the pics are fine.

Just check that the disposable camera doesn't include free processing anyway?

(And if not, can I recommend getting a disposable that does in future, as it works out much cheaper ...)

Otherwise, Max Spielman or Boots perhaps?

My diposable cameras only had 12 shots each and Tesco were cheaper than Boots, Supasnaps and Max Spielmann. For 12+ it may be different.

Boots do a 6 day service 24 for £2.99 and you can rely on the quality!

Remember:

Any white marks on the photo is the fault of the company processing them - and you ask for them to be re processed.

Any black marks are the film/camera.

(I used to develop photographs for Supasnaps/Sketchleys)

Disposable cameras with free processing available from:

Max Spielman
Klick
Supasnaps
Timpsons (some branches have a little stand with them on).

I'd say unless you take it to Boots, you could get a discount off most photo processing with a little bit of pushing or persuading. You may need to wait a week for them as opposed to an hour service, but I'd say it was possible.

I found that often the quality of the photos was such that not every one was a "keeper". If you are a bit skint Tesco will give you the photos on CD for £1.99 ish (99p for processing + £1ish for the CD). You can then decide which ones you'd like to keep and only get those made up - or email them to your friends and family.
This is especially useful if the kids took the photos - pics of sky, thumbs etc LOL.

It's only a game

Default Mail order Disposable camera processing

The best I can find for (reputable) mail order processing is Fujifilm: thewholepictureonline.co.uk.

For £5.50 per 24 exp camera, you get the prints plus a CD with the digitised version. You have to pay the postage to get the cameras to them but the return P&P is free.

I suspect it would be cheaper to go in-store to somewhere like Tesco but that's not a practical option for me.

I'd love to know if this can be beaten - especially with an option that is CD only.
