Developing colour film

Your colour films are in good hands thanks to this trusty workhorse, our Noritsu V50 film processor. 

Two rolls of film are placed into the machine at a time and the development process takes ten minutes from start to finish. The Noritsu V50 can process up to 50 rolls an hour, hence the name!

Black and white developing, in-house

All of your black and white film developing is done in-house at our Leeds lab by our Noritsu QSF 430L.

Two rolls are placed into the machine at a time and can develop up to 30 rolls an hour.

Scanning your films

Once your films are developed, it's time for our scanners to do their bit.

We have 4 top of the range lab scanners, The Noritsu HS1800

Our Noritsu HS1800's are seriously impressive. The Noritsu's have great colour rendition, shadow/highlight detail and can output 16 bit uncompressed tiff. The software also allows us to produce flat scans if required, perfect for post processing..

If you need a single frame scanning at a higher resolution than our regular Noritsu HS-1800's are capable of, or you have an image you'd like scanning at a higher resolution to make a big print, we also have an Imacon Flextight.

Digital & Giclee printing

We offer beautiful, high quality photo prints from our Epson dry-lab printer.

Prints are available from 6x4" all the way up to 12x18" on 250gsm gloss and lustre paper. 

Prints can be uploaded here and can be digital or film!

Brought to you in partnership with Fresh Aire, we are now also offering high-end giclée printing!

Our Giclée prints are made using an inkjet process with pigment-based inks on archival Hahnemühle paper, making them ideal for photographers who are looking to get the best quality prints from their photographs. 

Doing our bit for the environment.

From our experience of working in film labs in the past we knew how much waste comes from film processing.

We wanted to be as sustainable as we could in our lab. Our chemical waste is collected in the lab by using a Metafix filtration system, which filters the chemicals so the waste is safe to be poured down a drain. The silver is recovered via the system which then goes on to be used in silver jewellery / cutlery etc!

We keep all of the metal film canisters that come from processing your film, selling them to customers who can use them to reload cameras or make little plant holders from! All of the money from these sales goes to MAP, a Leeds based charity that is an alternative education provider working with young people who are unable to access the mainstream school system.

We also supply plastic film canisters to the creative team at Brothers Make and Mull Club.

These canisters are melted down and are used on a wide range of things that you can buy on their websites!

All of the disposable cameras posted to us are sent off to be recycled through the company Swains.
