  1. Hello, I recently had two rolls of 120 developed and printed by Sxxxa. The results were utterly disappointing: they were ISO 200 films but the grains were the size of a sesame! They were visible on the digital picture and were even more pronounced on the prints! Hence my question: would you know of any shops that still do analog printing, not digital printing? Many thanks. Allen
