    Default SLides overexposed - Machine Faulty...

    Hiee...

    Just to share my sorrow....Got back my slide today (one of those covering the POwerboat)....the shop apologised to me for overexposing while developing the slides. Before i could say anything....they apologise and apologise....and gave me a Free Next roll of slides processing voucher....

    This is one of those time where have to admit....accidents do happen...

    I saw a Bunch of slides also rejected ......consolidated to a lot....

    rgds,

    Huh? How can the lab "overexpose" your slides? More like the overdeveloped it in your case. Which shop, by the way?

    This is actually very serious. Can imagine if it's someone's wedding or some $10k trip to Iceland...

    i'm not trying to be difficult on them, but i think you deserve more compensation than that.

    While that is true, if you read your coupon, (the one that they give you in receipt of your film) there is a disclaimer there that says that the limit to the damages is the cost of the roll of film.

    Bottomline, be real careful where you process your film. Better to go to a reliable lab then some cheapo one.....

    If u are covering an event in S'pore ok lar.... but if u are travelling on a holiday.... how many types of media can u bring along... most likely only a small digicam without much storage.... duh..... I'll burn down the shop man if they do that to me!!!

    That's why professionals buy liability insurance. It covers them for such incidents which are not of their fault.
