I have two rolls of exposed, undeveloped super 8mm film in my freezer right now. I want to have processing and a digital transfer done. I've done a bunch of research online, yet I can't seem to find a place that I would feel comfortable sending my film to that isn't astronomically expensive. Where can I have this done? Bonus if its in or somewhat near Chicago.
Would black-and-white negative film still be good if it were stored in a refrigerator for over 3 years? What about printing paper? [more inside]

Thank you everyone.

However, my 800mhz G4 Powerbook has USB 1.0. Does this mean those cameras won't play nice with my laptop?
