Film Processing & Scanning

Film processing and scanning, from 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 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.

Our process and scan service is available at three resolutions:

Low res (1500 pixels long edge – suitable up to 6″ prints)
Mid res (3000 pixels long edge – suitable up to 10″ prints)
High res (5000 pixels long edge – suitable up to 15″ prints)

Low, mid and high resolution jpegs are delivered via

By default, mid and high res scans are produced slightly flat to preserve tonal detail, with minimal in scanner sharpening applied.

High resolution scans can be supplied as 16bit tiff files, but you will need to send us a USB at time of order, as the files are just too large to wetransfer.

We are currently only offering a  mail order processing service.

Process, scan and print

We now have an option of process, scan and print. 6″ prints from 35mm (6×4”) and 6” prints from 120mm film (6×6” from 6×6, 6×7” from 6×7 film, and so on). Pick your preferred scanning resolution (low, mid or high) and it’s just another five pounds for a pack of prints (up to 40 frames from 35mm, double the cost for half frame shooters).

If you’ve had film processed and scanned by us in the last month, we can run you a set of prints from the scan files, again £5.00 per roll, from entire rolls. These are machine prints, lovingly calibrated, but not to be confused with our other printing options.

Scan only is available from entire rolls of film, either uncut or cut in strips of at least 4 frames (35mm) or 2 frames (120)

For scans from 5×4, or individual high resolutions scans, we offer a dedicated very high resolution scanning facility

Please note, a ‘contact sheet’ is a print created with the negatives placed directly on top of the photographic paper, ie not enlarged.

If you wish to have your film ‘pulled’ or ‘push’ processed, this can be done by arrangement, with an additional fee of £2.00 per roll or sheet.

If you prefer, we can supply you with a digital contact sheet instead of a traditional one for the same price.

All prices include VATTURNAROUND 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. To get an idea as to the current turnaround time, call reception on +44 (0) 207 738 5774.
