The average time to develop this type of film is 2 to 3 weeks, if you also request a 2K scan then add another week or 2 on top.
This roll is slit after processing and then you end up with 60 meter of super8 footage which are 4 super8 cartridges. That is why the price including a transfer is relative high. You can view the results with a super8 movie projector.
Also pay attention to the length of the film roll that you order. If you have a double8 camera you would go for 10 meter rolls. If you use a 16mm camera you can either buy 10 meter or 30 meter rolls.
