I am the proud (new) owner of a Nikon 8X Super Zoom that I got off eBay for $10! And it works! I'm looking for recommendations for places to buy/process film.

Are you in the US? call Kodak to order 1-800-621-3456. Alpha Cine in Seattle and Spectra Film in LA do good processing.

I shot a test role of 100D and had it processed at Spectra. They're great guys, took their time with me, gave my camera a meter test, and the footage came out great! I lucked out with my Nikon; very sharp lens, of course, and only $10! Yay, eBay!

Kodak's Ektachrome 100D is a really great film and if you want a great price and the best dates, I also suggest buying it directly from Kodak.
