Used one of these on holiday:
It is disposable.
Now looking to have the photos printed.
Haven't done this for years... Any idea where? High street preferred if
not ridiculously expensive.
The larger supermarkets may still have a machine. Though TBH I'd
think I'd prefer to send it off to one of the bigger firms as they
ought to have the throughput to keep the chemicals fresh. A
supermarket or High Street shop may not have much throughput these
days and wring the last bit out of the chemicals before (expensively)

My local Sainsbury's fairly recently revamped/expnded their store and
has a "Photoshop" department that does proper chemical processes.
We also have an independent "camera shop" which does that sort of
In fact, doesn't Jesse Boot still do processing?
Maybe not, as they use the same processor for both digital and film
prints, so throughput will be roughly the same for the last 5 years.
I used to service these machines, and they were kept in very good
condition generally, any deterioration of the chemicals showed in the
print instantly, it is not a case of the chemicals being changed once
a month or so, they are constantly being replenished, so the chemical
should be at the same quality level for 6 months, when it becomes
necessary to change all the internal rollers, as they get coated with
black tar like substance, and if not changed, they put black tar marks
on the prints.
Again, it is instant that you see if you have this problem, so the
operator would stop the processor, make a call to the service team, who
would be there the next day to change the roller set.
There's a local photographic dealer near me who not only has a 35mm
minilab, but he can also cope with 120 rollfilm.
I live in the Potteries, but there are still a few proper camera shops
dotted round the country.
I've seen large ADSA stores with film processors in the last year or so

think my newmarket lab still does that if you are in west suffolk east
Failing that they can scan it at high res and use their digital photo
(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
I had one done over the counter at Boots about 6 months ago; can't
remember the price but did do a bit of research first and they were best
value I found IIRC. They just developed the film and provided a CD (ie
no prints, althought they would have done if required).
Did a disposable camera for my son last year at the local Costco.
If you can blag a membership their on-line service for digital prints is
also really good and far cheaper than printing them out.
it's pennies for a 6" print
