Hi all, my wife just got me a Diana Mini so I'm very new to film photography. I've been Googleling but can't seems to find the ans. I would like to find out if it is possible to request the photo labs to just develop the film into negatives without the prints/photograph? Reason being that I have a flatbed scanner that can scan 35mm films, so I was thinking of scanning the negatives and have "softcopy" instead.

Oh ok....haven't been to the photolabs for over a decade I think and even back then it was with the photos. Hehehe thought they would think I am trying to be funny by only processing the film and not getting it into prints.

Yes, you can ask them to process only, no printing, no scanning.

yes of course... you are able to develop them only... if you want to skip the scanning part, for just a few $$ extra you can get them to scan to CD also...
