it's ok lah, cos he is using a DC. Btw, can we request for that even for negative prints? As in, ask not to do any adjustments. Never tried asking that before.Originally posted by Olympus2000
Like to add one more point.
Do instruct your photo developer not to adjust the colour saturation/contrast/whatever settings too. Else, he/she might happily adjust the exposure settings while developing your pictures and BING, back to square one. get 2 identical pictures with diff EV setting.
my 2 frames worth...
I see..thanks for the info. So which outlet would you recommend?Originally posted by Olympus2000
That depends on which outlet you go to. Some outlet lets the minilab do the adjustments (DC or FC make no diff) automatically while others are done manually. I think you can forget about asking if its operated automatically. The darn machine will run a software that 'balances' the colour, brightness etc... It's supposed to produce consistently good pictures by some standards... but again, no software is better than an experience human developer. All they do is punch a few buttons to make minor corrections and it'll usually turn out superb.
ok, it's alright lah, cos I'm a East guy and I seldom pass by Jurong. Thanks anyway! I'll try asking at the labs that I encounter.Originally posted by Olympus2000
I'm a west guy. I find that one Kodak (who has a lady master doing the adjustment) outlet near where I live in Jurong. Can't remember the name of the shop. If you're interested, I'll make a note when i visite that area and post it here.
I think there are a couple more in the town whom some of my frens swear by. I've not tried them and therefore will not make any comments here.
