Google search said Taylor photo but their page is expired and yelp page is dated 2011, might not still be in business.

I had bought a film scanner to digitize all our old family slides but after a couple weeks messing with it, I gave up on it.

I fear that Taylor may have closed. I was driving by not long ago and thought I saw the building on Bernath in transition.

I would give Kohne's in Perrysburg a call. They list lab services on their website but the price list only seems to mention prints and inkjet stuff.

Your best bet would probably be the intertubes to find E6 processing. A lady in my daughter's Brownie troop bought a disposable 35mm camera to take some pics of her granddaughter at a weekend getaway (electronics not allowed) and Walgreens charged her like $35 to process and make prints. Film processing seems to have gone the way of button shoes.

I still shoot slide film. Only not 35mm. Only medium format. I send it out to a company called Denver Digital. You can Google them. They give me great service. Prices not too bad either.

I still have some rolls in the refrigerator from Seattle Film Works.
I wonder if they're even in business anymore lol.
There film was originally intended to be motion picture film, but they sold it as 35mm film that you could get both slides and prints from.

Lord knows what pictures I have on that film. I shot it years ago and it's been in the fridge ever since.

Not necessarily slide related, but last year at this time I bought some waterproof disposable cameras for Warrior Dash and I had them processed locally in an hour. I don't remember if it was Rite Aid or Walgreens. All drug stores run together for me, lol.

Randy Taylor died of cancer last February. Here are two links: Randy Taylor at 52 Rolls and Randy Taylor obituary at The Blade.

Is 35mm film still being made? How about in B&W?

Answer to both questions is yes. And they will be around for some time. When I do shoot 35mm it's mostly B&W. Ilford. Not hard to find at all. 35mm color at any corner drugstore or Walmart. I still have a CVS right up the road that does same day processing.

Truth is everything I've read on any site I have just looked at is all old posts for the most part. I think its still being made but very limited quantities and can be found on E-bay and processed at Walgreens. Other than that I dont really see a whole lot about 35mm film.
