Film Developing & Prints

Our studio usually opens Monday to Saturday from 12pm to 7pm. However, sometimes we might be doing outdoor photo-shooting by the time, you may also place it into our mailbox at our address, or please contact us on behalf heading to our store.

Our studio does Colour (C41) and Black and White negatives developing, scanning and enlarging. Unfortunately, Slide(E6) film and Cine (ECN2) film are not available.

If you do not want to print out the entire roll of negatives, it will cost £7.

Or you can order prints separately after your order has been done.

Our Studio is using Fujifilm Frontier SP300 as our main film scanner.

We do 3 scanning resolution options.

Low: 2728 × 1830 pixelMedium: 4547 × 3047 pixel

High: 5444 x 3649 pixel 

The differences between the 3 resolution options

Low quality is ideal for web or social media. It is also perfect for 4x6 printing.

Medium quality is ideal for printing up to 5x7 or A4 size.

High is ideal for A4, A3 or larger size print.

For locals, you may contact us and drop off your film directly in our store.
