Hi all and happy new year.
I have this super 8 cartridge, kodachrome, k40, type A. Me and my parents recorded some footage on it about 25 years ago when i was a kid.
So is there anywhere in the uk where i can get it developed/processed and put on to dvd or as avi file.
Thanks in advance

Not only not in the UK, nowhere in the world. Kodachrome was discoltinued on 2010.

There are a couple of labs which will attempt to process it to b/w neg, but they don't guarantee a result, it takes months and costs a packet.

THere are others I believe.

As you pointed out, Film Rescue will process it as B&W negative.

 

I believe Pro8mm, Plattsburgh Photographic, Spectra Film and Video... and I believe others... 

 

I bet at least someone in the UK will do it.

The 50' cartridge is about the size of a fag packet. Very few cameras took 200'.

Thetimescale suggest that they are sending it to Canada anyway.

I process this all the time here at Plattsburgh Photographic Services.  Such old film fairs best done as a B&W Negative and then transferred to digital for a reversed positive image.   Some insist on a reversal image, which due to age, even compensated, sometimes comes out okay amidst clouding/age fog in the film's image and greatly reduced contrast.  There are some samples from others that have reversal processed such old film, up on YouTube.  Anyhow, good luck with your film, a time capsule for your family for sure.
