Hi,Originally posted by taicw
There are a few threads on the topic of where to develop and the cost. I think they can be found under consumer's corner
You can either pass the smartmedia or memory card to them, or on other storage media such as a CD-R or CD-RW. It might cheaper to put only those pictures you want to print onto the CD-RW or storage media and pass it to them instead of telling them which pictures to select on the storage media.
Just a rough cost, the base charge is about $5, and fuji e-pic charges $0.50 and standard photo charges $0.35 per 4R.
are you sure? which shop is that? some fujifilm shops still charge $5 handling fee.Originally posted by kssim
The $5 base charge is required when you sent the pictures through the internet. However if you bring your photo (CD-R, Zip disk, etc etc) directly to the shop, there is no additional $5. The price for each 4R print from digital is still $0.50 though.
If you're staying in the west, Paradise Photo in Jurong West Extension does not charged me the $5 handling fee when I send my photos down direct.Originally posted by mpenza

You can try Raffles Place, there's a fuji outlet and a standard photo outlet very near each other. the Standard photo outlet is located at the Arcade and the Fuji outlet is just in the next building. Sent my pics to the Standard photo outlet for developing.
Would a 1.44 Mb diskette do?Originally posted by Flare
Just to inform you... They will not be liable to any damage to the media or pictures and they'll have to keep the media till you collect the photos... so you may have to leave your SM with them for a day or two...
Is it a good idea will be up to you... Many people burn into CD-Rs to protect their CF or SM
Thanks a bundle.Originally posted by taicw
I've never considered a 1.44mb disk coz with the present resolution for my 2.1 mp cam, i prob can only store 1-2 pics at norm to high resolution on it. Kinda impractical.
I'd rather use a CD-RW as it can be reused many times.. just copy the pictures u want to develop onto it and send it in. In the event that it is damaged, at least it's much cheaper than a CF or SM being spoilt. Less stress over waiting for it to come back safely
Another alternative might be Zip disks, think those should be accepted too.
Just my 0.0001 cents
