Processing in C41
& Black + White

All films are processed in house. We use our workhorse Fuji Frontier FP363SC for all the color film, and for Black + White we have a JOBO system set up.

Scanning Your Film

We use the industry standard Fuji Frontier SP-3000 film scanner. It produces great, natural, looking scans straight out of the scanner. We do not add any extra adjustments, we let the film do the talking.

Film Developing 

Our Scanner - Fuji Frontier SP-3000

Right now in the Lab we use two Fuji Frontier SP-3000 scanners. These are industry standard in most labs, and create great colors straight from the scanner. The scanner itself was intended to work in collaboration with the "Frontier" line of printers as well. All scans are done at 300dpi ready for print. We can only input the final print size we want, and this will tell the scanner how large or detailed it should scan the negative. We offer two different scan sizes to fit your needs, standard and large. The standard scan will be good for almost everything, including social media and printing up to about A4 size. The large scan is the maximum the scanner can do, below are some of the nerdy details about each.

Standard Scan

Flat Scanning

We added a new option for you guys that need a little bit of extra room for editing. Now we are offering two options of scans. Standard and Flat. The standard scans we just let the scanning decide what is best, and what you end up are beautiful ready to go scans. The new flat option give you a bit more room in the highlights and shadows to edit. We suggest that you only use this flat scan option with the "Large" scans from us.

1. Standard

2. Flat


Prints From Your Film 

Now with every film processing order you have the option to add prints. These high quality prints are made with our Fuji Frontier dry lab. Printed on semi-matte lustre paper, measuring 10x15cm or 15x20cm. These are a good size to give as gifts, or to add to your photo album, or help you choose certain  photos for your upcoming photo project.
