    Some years ago, I ran a roll of TRI-X through my F2, and one shot, I took, using the 18-55mm DX lens that came with my D3200.

    This picture was taken with the lens zoomed out to 18mm. As you can see, it does not completely cover the entire 35mm frame

    I didn't take any shots at other zoom levels, but I did observe through the viewfinder that as I zoomed in, that the coverage increased, and that at some point in that direction, and beyond, it did cover the whole frame.
    'TRI-X'......There's a word I haven't used in forever. It made me want to break out my F5 and go get some film!

    Speaking of the F5. I pulled it out and aside from needing some batteries, I noticed that there is still a roll of film in it! I have to finish the roll and see if it can actually get processed. That film has been in the camera since I bought a D2X (new).

    Who actually processes film anymore?

    Who actually processes film anymore?
    My neighborhood Walgreens still has a photo lab in-store. This was the place where I last took film when I discovered 2 rolls of expired film stock packed with my Minolta XD-11 about 11 years ago.

    The local camera shop where I normally buy gear also processes film. I expect they take mailed-in work too.
    The Camera Company, Madison, WI

    I also have had this place bookmarked for years. No personal experience though. Richard Photo Lab, Santa Clarita, CA
