Okay I went to wal-mart today in order to personally investigate on this matter and found something that you guys might happen to like.
I found a brochure at the store and saw that you can drop off super 8 film and they'll charge you only $29.75 for the first 250' of footage and $0.12 per additional foot in order to process and transfer it to DVD.
You can check it out at their website: http://photos1.walmart.com/storepage...eId=Store+Only
It doesn't specify any certain type of super 8 film so I believe you can do this with ektachrome, tri-x, and whatever else.
Has anyone tried out this service? Can you tell them to transfer it to miniDV in the special instructions? I think that they might send it over to Dwayne's instead of doing it themselves?
