How we develop your 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 V50!
How we scan your developed films
Once your films are developed, it's time for our scanners to their bit.
We have 3 top of the range lab scanners, The Noritsu HS1800
Our Noritsu HS1800's are the newer scanners to our collection, and are seriously impressive. The Noritsu's produce great shadow detail. Scans are also a lot flatter on the noritsu, perfect for post edits.
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 meaning the waste is safe to be poured down a drain. The silver is also recovered via the system which then goes on to be used in silver jewellery / cutlery etc!
Film waste = Recycled furniture and money for charity
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 local based Motley Makers, a Mirfield-based bespoke fabrication studio with a passion for sustainability and supporting the local community. These canisters are melted down and are used on a wide range of things such as table tops / coasters etc.
