Our friendly staff will then direct you to fill out an order form and pay.
We then will process your film and if you have selected scans you will receive an email and SMS with a Dropbox link with your images.

Somethings you need to know

For any orders with mixed emulsion types, for example, a C-41 and an E-6 order, customers can request to receive the C-41 negatives/scan first if needed. Otherwise, they will usually be sent out once every roll in the order is completed.

This is however, only available for colour negative (C-41) film in both 35mm and 120 formats, at a cost RM 10 per roll.
Rush job service is available on most days, however, is typically not available during Saturdays or during times of film processor maintenance.

Film Developing Details:

We process Colour Negative (C-41/CN-16), Black & White, Motion Film (ECN-2) and Slide/Reversal (E-6/CR-56) film.
We do not process Kodachrome (K-14) or Super 8 film.

Colour (C-41) orders are developed using a Noritsu QSF-V50 processor, while our black & white orders are developed manually via a drum process.
We outsource our E-6 & ECN-2 development, which is developed via a dip-and-dunk process.

 

Film Scanning Details:

We provide high-resolution scans with the resolution of a typical 35mm image being 5444 by 3649 pixels.
Our 35mm & 120mm film is scanned using Fujifilm Frontier SP3000.

We upload your images to Dropbox and send you a link to an online folder containing your images that you can download to your phone or computer.
Don’t worry – you don’t need a Dropbox account to access your images. We can also scan to a USB thumb drive if one is provided to us at no extra cost.
