Film processing (or developing), scanning and printing
We process quite a bit of film still, it is quite popular with enthusiasts, pro’s and a number of people just not wanting to change to digital. If you just unearthed a few (or a box full) rolls of old film from a cupboard you’ve been meaning to clean for a decade or two you’re in luck! Imageland still offers film processing, right here, not somewhere else, we do it!
Colour film developing is not just a “turn on the machine and hope for the best” type of scenario. At 55 Lake Road we are darned picky and make sure we run Control Strips before running customers film, a part of a degree difference in temperature makes a lot of difference. Not only do we run these control strips, we also look at them to make sure we are getting good results from a baseline standard! We suspect you’d like us to be treating your film as if it were our own, so we do.
Processing rolls of 35mm film is still a common service, many films are printed but if you’ve found some old rolls and have no idea what is on them we can scan them for you to check on your computer before committing to printing. We also process 120, 110, 126, 220, & APS film on-site.
Scanning is done via a few different processes depending on the original and it’s condition. More about scanning can be found on this page: Scanning Services
Other film processing
We get quite a bit of B&W film through, while we do not do this on-site our trusty friend Jill still does this processing for us and she has decades of experience so it is in good hands. E-6 Slide film can also be processed though we are not able to offer this service onsite currently.
