Film Developers: Can They Be Trusted?

Recommended Posts

Film Developers

Can They Be Trusted?

 

Has anyone heard of film developers of disposable cameras submitting copies of photos and film to the police?

 

Isn't this illegal for them to do, and even once the police had the photos and your information it couldn't be used against you right?

It'll be counted as stolen evidence probably, so it wil be struck from the court records. But the thing is from that point on the police will have their eye on you no matterwhat :p

of disposable cameras? Do you have to send those off somewhere? If it's in your town then... be wary, however...

 

It's not against the law to take pictures, for the most part. If you have action flicks and people's faces on the roll then I would be very careful where you get it developed. Probably some faceless guy in a mail-order lab doesn't care at all. Some lady behind the counter at WalMart might freak out but, like I said, if it's just pictures of pieces and stuff then it's just photojournalism, wether the cops come or not. Stick to the story that you like the 'art' and it's your right to photograph it.

 

On the flip side, if you have shots of heads actually painting then that could be evidence of a crime. In that case they can hand your flicks to the Cops and the cops CAN use them against you.

 

 

This is a pretty grey area type issue but basically the black and white of it is what I explained. Just go to WalMart or where ever and chat up the girl behind the counter for a sec, see how she seems and trust your gut.

I have a solution....

 

 

Start saving your pennies and buy a digital camera that has photodock capabilities and of course, a photodock printer. This way you can print all your photos at home without worry of coming under fire from snooping photo developers.

 

You'll also save money by not getting absolute crap photos printed.

 

I mean...disposable cameras? people still use those? What is this....the dark ages?

these disposable cameras i had were from two years ago. although i'm still worried about mother fuckering rats trying to inform pigs thus putting heat on me. i might just be being paranoid though.

 

i mean, it's not like they keep copies of customer's photos or are allowed to share customer photos with third parties or whatever by law right?

Where not living in the 90s anymore. Invest in a digital camera. Its worth it.

And them taking copies of your photos are illegal. BUT them taking pictures of your pictures arnt.

2 year old photos are probably way beyond the statute of limitations... just try it, don't be all shook.

A professor in my area brought his film into a CVS to be developed, The film contained a photo of him next to a full grown pot plant in the wild. Someone at that CVS decided to take the photo to the police, the police went and questioned him, He got a lawyer, and sued like a motherfucker and won. I think if its something like child pornography or something thats a clear and indisputable crime being committed then they can contact the authorities, otherwise a photo can be up to complete interpretation - who's to say you didnt have permission to paint a replica subway? However, It is probably a good idea to bring it to somewhere with a low incidence rate of reactionary retards working there - ie go to a serious photo developer for a couple more bucks instead of walmart.

 

I have yet to see a home printer that rivals the detail quality of film processed at a quality developer. Hell, I print both film and digital if its a photo of something I really want to save.

i remember once we were making out pictures in a little hole in the wall 1 hour spot and all these pictures started coming down the photo machine, you know how they are in public view, and there are a million fliks of this chick giving this guy a blow job. ha ha, but the chick and the guy were right there in the store looking at the 5 of us looking at the pictures and when we realized it was her she turned red and we just busted out laughing. we were like 16-17 years old.

I worked in a CVS photolab when I was younger. They basically told me if the film i developed contained shit along the lines of child pornography or of someone committing some fucked up crime to let them and the police know. Other than that no one really gave a shit, unless it was on some good samaritan type shit, which doesnt happen much these days. The worst was the naked pregnant lady pics i had to do.
