    Hi

    i have a really poor quality digital camera so was going to take an old SLR camera with me to Thailand. i was just wondering how easy it is to:
    1. get hold of film in thailand?
    2. get film processed?

    also, does anyone have suggestions of how i could get my photographs onto a computer? do internet cafes have scanners or do film processing places have the facillities to get it on a computer?

    Thanks

    You can still get film processing done in most larger towns in Thailand, and there are places that will scan your images for you and put them onto a disc. Not sure about what kind of resolution or file size they save them to, though.

    You can still buy film, as well, though if you plan on using high end film you might be better off bringing your own. Also, there's no way of knowing how long that film has been sitting around.

    cool, cheers!
    Just wanted to check that scanning was possible. im just going to get cheap kodak colour film, i kind of like the vivid basic colours they capture.

    The slides there are some very good labs on low end of Surawong and also in Thaniya Plaza (on Soi thaniya, which runs between Surawong and Silom). I don't have the names offhand, but if you need them let me know and I'll look them up.
