Film Processing

We process both black & white and colour negative film. All films are hand-processed by our in-house photographic experts using traditional stainless steel spirals and sheet film holders. For black & white we offer the choice of two different developers – Ilford Ilfotec DD or Fomadon RO9 (the modern equivalent of Agfa Rodinal). For colour negative we process in deep tanks containing Kodak Flexicolor C-41 chemistry. Please note that we do not have the facilities to process colour transparency film (E-6). However, we can cross-process transparency film to give a negative image. This procedure usually results in an extremely high-contrast, heavily saturated negative with wild variations in colour and tone according to the make of transparency film used. Both black & white and colour processing is available for 35mm, 120 (medium format) and 5×4” film.

We also offer a mail order film processing service.

TURNAROUND TIMES

We endeavour to have your film ready two full working days from drop off – e.g. drop off at 2pm Tuesday, collect after 2pm Thursday – but this may vary according to how busy the department is and the size of the processing order.
