Film Developing & Scanning

+ What are your turnaround times?

Turnaround times vary by product and are as follows:
Film Developing – C41/B&W: 4 hours (if turned in before noon)
Film Developing – E6: 2-3 days

Please note that these are approximations. For large orders, please call for a quote.

+ Why are my scans at 72 DPI?

72 DPI is the default resolution output of the Noritsu and Frontier scanners. We know this scares people. Rest assured, you're not getting a low resolution image. This is simply a number that applies to the medium by which the image will be viewed. 72 DPI is typical for web, 300 DPI is typical for small prints and 200 DPI is typical for Large prints, etc. The best way to judge the size of the image is with the pixel dimentions or the uncompressed megabyte size. Another way to look at this is, "you can slice a 12" pizza as many times as you want, but it's still a 12" pizza." Mmmm, pizza.

+ What do you do with my negatives?

Orders marked for pickup are held for 90 days. Mail-out orders are sent out right away, except in certain cases for high-volume customers. Unclaimed negatives will be shredded to protect the privacy of the customer.

+ My film scans are smaller than your advertised size

This is a common misconception. You see, a few years back when Photoshop was the standard photo editing application, you had to open up the "Image Size" window to see the image dimensions. Within this window you can see the UNCOMPRESSED file size in megabytes, pixel dimentions, etc. Nowadays, with the popularity of Adobe Lightroom, most people go by the pixel dimentions. Pixel dimentions are cumbersome, however, and hard to remember so we use megabytes in our lab.

+ Do you offer custom scans?

Custom scans are available upon request. There is an additional $5 per roll for this service.

+ What are you shipping charges?

For all film orders we charge a flat rate of $7.99 per order via USPS Priority.

+ Do you develop disposable cameras?

Absolutely! We develop both C41 and B&W disposable cameras.

Yes! We offer lab-to-lab discounts for film processing, scanning and printing. Please call Aaron @ 949-250-7073 ext. 105 for info.
