The most idiotic service ever

I hate a lot of things in this world, but none as much as 1-hour film processing.

Why in God’s name would you spend $12 to get your photos developed in an hour? Is your mother on her deathbed and just has to see the pictures this instant?

Give me a break. Stop paying for 1-hour photo processing.

Now what?

It’s worse than that. I worked at a CVS. When you chose next day (or two day–whatever) processing, the film is shipped out to a professional lab and shipped back to your store. But if you chose 1-hour processing, the film is developed in-house by a poorly-trained, snotty teenager on inferior equipment who will probably fuck up half of your photos. So don’t do it!

it’s not idiotic if you have a newspaper deadline. but otherwise, you’re probably right.

George Carlin does a wonder skit about this. “how can anyone be nostalgic about a concept like ‘a little while ago’?!” The comment about the ‘snotty teenager’ screwing up your photos was repeated to me by a friend who works in a photo studio: One hour photos -twice the cost, half the quality.

Whenever I think of 1-hour processing I think of those chessy photomat booth set up in parking lots. We had a mall in our town that is now county office building that had one of these. I had to laugh when one of these things was destroyed in the movie Back to the Future by a VW Van being driven by Libyian terrorists.

Seeing this post, I just have to relay a story from my father – I think you’ll enjoy it seeing as you hate 1-hour photos! (I share this with the faith in all of you that you will realize THIS IS A DUMB IDEA WHICH SHOULD NOT BE REPLICATED!) So my dad and his best friend (I’ll call him james to protect him…) go out and get completely drunk. (They were seniors in high school I believe). They’re in James’ 2-seater muscle car (camaro maybe?) crusing around and they end up going to a strip mall that is under construction,… Read more »

I go to Ritz Camera and one of the things I like about it is that while it’s a bit more expensive all around, they don’t charge more for 1 hour service. Not only that, but if, in the rare event, the color is off (maybe a bit more magenta than you expected) they will gladly reprint them for free, even though it takes a lot longer because your negatives are already cut. They also individually color correct each photo by hand (some places simply run the photo’s thru uncorrected or let the machine attempt to figure it out… which… Read more »
