So I have 2 rolls of film from my husband from the Alaska trip. One is a standard Kodak 400. It s the other one that I don't know about. My husband handed me both and then says one is regular film and the other is slide film. What? It is FujiFilm Velvia 100 but also says 'color reversal' on it.

Not sure if it gets processed the same way. Looked up a review but seemed like it was a professional photographer.

Anyone know?

Color reversal=slide film. They don't get processed in the same way.

Take them to your local Fotomat - oh wait. :P

That is what I asked my husband. No idea why he used this film. I will leave that to him to deal with. Good old Kodak I will get done.

Call Hunt Photo & Video in the Boston/Cambridge area. If they can't recommend a place close to you, you can send it to Hunt's.

You can make prints from slides.

Magazines used to require slide film for submissions. That info is pre-digital-age. Who knows what they require now. Slide film gives more pixels/inch than regular film.

When I last had film developed (around 2005/2006), I took it to Costco. They not only developed & printed the pictures, but they would also provide a digital copy (on disc, IIRC). I would think that most places that still develop film would provide that option, too.

I just did a little searching and found an article/advertisement that had a lot of information that's surely verifiable as to its truth:

https://thedarkroom.com/retail-film-processing/

One thing I did not know is that some of the places that still DO develop film do not return the negatives. To me, that is ridiculous. It is supposedly because of mailing costs, but how much does adding the negatives actually add to a stack of prints?

No, they don't. The reason they required slide film is that the process they used for creating printing plates for color photos requires a positive image.

The magazines told my photographer friend the reason for slide film is that it had the most pixels/inch. If they needed to blow the pictures up, they got best pic with slide film.

As far as I know, the best both positive and negative color films all have an RMS granularity value of 8.

I guess Uly hasn't seen this.
