Shooting on film is becoming popular again

There seems to be a resurgence of interest in the old craft of photographing using film. While most people use digital capture and software, there really is no comparison to the look and feel of an image shot on film. And that quality is why film is becoming popular again. All the digital Photoshop filters in the world can't quite replicate what a simple strip of plastic film containing microscopically small light-sensitive silver halide crystals can.

So, to celebrate this mini-comeback we are offering our professional develop and scan service to every nostalgic enthusiast, cheaper than ever. Complete with dust removal and index print this amazing offer gives you the opportunity to test out that old film camera or, finally find out what's on those old rolls of film that have been lying around.

 Scans Available on these film types

By far the most popular film type and size used, 35mm colour film has been around for years. Since 1934 actually. Available in ISO speeds from 100 - 1600 a full frame image is 24×36 mm (aspect ratio of 2:3)
The disposable or single-use camera is a simple box camera sold with a roll of film installed, meant to be used once. Most use fixed-focus lenses. Some are equipped with an integrated flash unit, and there are even waterproof versions for underwater photography. Internally, the cameras use a 35 film
   If you cross-process your slide film in C-41 chemicals, the results are shocking (in a good way!!). The entire colour balance and contrast level of your images is thrown out of whack. Photos turn out saturated or with high contrast and you might get all kinds of other unexpected results as well! Different slide films have different characteristics too.
  Black & white films designed for C41 colour process are becoming very difficult to find, largely because there's only 2 brands left. Both the Kodak T400CN and Ilford XP2 have been specially formulated to produce monochromatic negatives in a standard colour process.
  Medium Format film is 2 to 6 times larger than standard 35mm film. More commonly referred to as 120 or 220 film this film format allows for better control of the depth of field and therefore more photographic creativity. Typically file sizes are 6x4.5cm or 6x6cm. (the 120 & 220 refers to the overall length of the film :)
