I am giving up on film as the only local shop here in Dereham UK are so bad the films look like they are sand paintings. Completely unusable. I don't know if they aren't capable or just don't care. I waited a month over Christmas for one roll to be scanned.
Another shop treated my low light prints to the auto exposure level setting and handed me a stack of purple/grey prints. The staff in these places couldn't care less, they are minimum wage and being sacked is a career move to the benefits system. Grrr!
