FAQ

 

Have a question?

What types of film do you process?

We develop C-41 and black and white film in 35mm and 120. E6 has been temporarily suspended but will be back soon.

What equipment and chemistry do you use to process film?

We use a Noritsu QSF-V30 film processor and  a Jobo ATL-3. 

For our C41 process we use genuine Kodak Flexicolor chemistry

For our Black & White process we use Kodak XTOL.

Do you run control strips?

Yes. We run Kodak control strips to constantly monitor the chemical and mechanical conditions of our equipment and to ensure our processes are within control.

Will you sleeve my negatives for me?

We will sleeve your negatives by default using Fujicolor sleeves, but if you prefer them to be uncut, let us know on your order form.

What is your turnaround time?

We aim to have all orders processed and scanned within 2-3 working days depending on our current volume. If you have a rush job, let us know on your order form. 

Do you offer push/pull/cross processing?

We do. Please note, push/pull processing can only be processed with our rotary service due to the limitations of our C41 roller transport machine.

What do you use to scan film?

We use a Fuji Frontier SP 3000, Noritsu LS-600 and a Noritsu HS-1800. You can learn about the differences between Fuji and Noritsu scans here.

What is the difference between standard scans and high resolution scans?

We have two tiers for resolution.

Standard resolution is great for small prints and web use. 

Our high resolution option is better for large prints or if you just want the maximum our scanners are capable of. 

For 35mm, our standard scans are 3000x2000 and high res are 6000x4000 

For 120, as an example, 6x6 standard scans are 2400x2400 and high res are 4800x4800. 

Do you scan Xpan frames?

We sure do! Our Noritsu scanners are capable of huge resolution on Xpan frames. We can scan up to 12297px on the long edge!
