Check out Dodd Camera, I think their main location is around E 30th. Also double check the locations on their website, as I know some of them have closed or moved recently.


I know they sell some chemistry, but you might want to call and see what they stock there. If I remember correctly it was mainly Ilford chem. You would also have to talk with them about scanning services and developing.

Aside from that I'm not too sure there are many places in the Cleveland area. I think there is Campus Camera in Kent, but haven't been there. I know Costco also offers 35mm scanning, but I doubt medium format. It may be worth calling their photo lab to ask though.

Honestly I've found it easier to use internet ordering for supplies because the area is so limited.

Best of luck, let me know if you have any other questions.

Regards, Martin

While I can't comment on Cleveland specifically, I can tell you that B&W processing is generally difficult to find and when you do find it, it may be very inconsistent. You will probably be better off using a C41 B&W film such as Ilford XP2 as you can use conventional C41 facilities and it will scan much easier than traditional B&W film. For best results using true B&W film, you should really consider processing yourself. You don't need a darkroom, just a minimal investment in equipment (changing bag, daylight tank, timer, thermometer, etc.), chemicals (developer, stop, fix), and time.
