Tesco still do it, only bout 2/3 quid to get it processed iirc.
Asda still do it for about £3:00 for 24 exposures i think it was, my daughter has recently ressurected one.

many thx rep left
any reason Jayice why they want this style of camera. The digital ones are unbelievably cheap nowadays and great bargains out there. Plus a lot of money saved in the future on processing the films- though I used to love running down to shop to pick up my pictures!

You sure? a second hand 20D (pretty old) will still cost £180 odd
Lomo cameras are popular 35mm film cameras - check out ebay for :
Smena, Lomo, Cosmic, Symbol - they are Russian made and give good effects such as double exposures, saturated colours etc.
try these websites:

"proper" 35mm cameras (Zenit, Pentax & etc) go for little money too on ebay - but best to research the forums first

Amazing what ya can pick up without much looking on older stuff, all have autofocus powered lenses, telephotos, massive zoom lenses etc....
They all have pretty decent digicams already, One of them started photography and so now they all want a SLR!

some of the older lenses will work on newer DSLR's with the correct adaptor also :thumbsup:
I have 3 old Carl Zeiss Lenses that I can mount on a Sony alpha and use the camera's on board IS.
The lenses cost circa £10 each :thumbsup:
