Here at Colourstream we all have a deep connection with film photography. Everyone who works here still shoots and develops their own film, and has done for many years. With over 100 years of combined photo lab experience with our developing staff we feel we’re well placed to handle with care and professionalism your negatives and transparencies.
We process all film here in house - colour negative C41, transparency E6, and black and white film starting with 110, of course 35mm, 120 and 220, right up to 5x4”. Pushing and pulling of all types is available (extra cost on C41 & E6).
Cross processing of E6 through C41 chemicals of all film sizes is also available, these are always scanned on our Fuji scanner, which gives great results. High quality C Type print packages are made by our experienced team on our Agfa Dlab 2 Select. All images printed or scanned are viewed and assessed and corrected if needed. Scan packages are done on either an Agfa Dlab2 or Fuji SP3000, depending on the film type and file size, as appropriate to give the best looking files.
All film can be dropped off, or handled by post, please click *here* for mail order. Standard service time is 7 days currently depending on film type and order size. Same day and 24 hr services may be available at an extra cost on C41 and B/W services depending on volume of work we have at any one time.
