We take time to color correct every frame of every roll of film no mater what film is used. Our experienced lab operators take a high level of quality control so that you can use the the scans for many different output options, whether it’s for sharing on-line, printing on traditional paper, canvas, metal or even gifts.
Do you have questions about film? Our team has over 70 years of combined experience and we love to help. If you you shoot for a living, just for fun or you are just starting out; we’re here to help. No matter what brand of film you have, we’ll develop, scan and print it to perfection.
Do you need film? You can order from our website (we are still adding so give us some time) or if you send in film using our mail in form you can select to have us send film back with your negatives. We carry Kodak, Illford, Fuji and a few fun brands you may not have heard of.
How long does film processing take? We always want to get your film back as quickly as possible. C41 and B&W we aim for 2-4 days of in-lab time. E6 is usually 7 days in-lab. If you mail you film in we don’t have control of the postal service but we will start developing as soon as we receive it. Once we have your film developed, scanned and received payment we will upload the images (if you request it) as quickly as possible so you can enjoy the images while waiting for the return of the negatives.
What Equipment do you use to process film? We develop our film in Noritsu Processors. Color film is developed through a Noritsu V50, B&W is done on Noritsu QSF-BW470LU and for E6 we use a Noritsu QSF-R410L-3U. We use Noritsu HS1800 and a Fuji S2500 to scan film and a Fuji 7700 for prints up to 12 x 36 inches and Epson SureColor P9000 for larger prints.
What type of films do you Develop? We process all brands/types of C41 film on-site as well as Black & White and E6. What size film do we develop? 35mm (full frame, half frame, xpan), APS, 110 and 120/220 in 6×6 6×45, 6×7, 6×9 formats. This includes Black & White film that is designed to process through color chemistry. We also develop True Black & White film and can cross process 35mm, 120, 220 & 110 film. When film is cross processed it gives it increased contrast and saturation with a lean to yellow hues. Did you get a disposable camera on a trip (or to let the kids use instead of your good camera)? We can develop disposable cameras which is the same as 35MM film.
Is it best to get Prints or Digitals? If you want digital files from your film it is always best to get that at the time of development. New (sense 2000) printers only print from digital files so all film is scanned to make prints. One nice thing about getting your film scanned to digital is that you can then print the ones you want and you don’t get back 24 prints when you only really wanted 1 or 2.
What Surface of paper do you print on? All our printing is available in Luster and Glossy prints up to 12×36 inches. Anything larger we recommend ESatin paper or Glossy and can go up to 44inches wide by 20 foot. If you are looking for something special consider getting Metallic, Fine Art or Watercolor papers. Each have their own characteristics and are available in any size from wallet to 44 inches. For film most people start with 4×6 prints in either glossy or luster. The price is the same but glossy appears sharper (it isn’t, it just looks like it is) but shows finger prints. Luster doesn’t show finger prints as much and is great for framing sense it doesn’t have as much glossy/shine.
