Film Processing

Our lab handles roll films, 135 (35mm) up to 4x5 sheet films; C-41 and traditional black & white. We process daily. Visit the lab during opening hours to place a processing order, use our after hours dropbox or send your films via post. Our turnaround time for general orders is 4 working days and can do develop only orders usually within the hour. We're a small scale lab focussed on quality, consistency and the final image. 


Colour Negative C-41

Roll films are machine processed adhering to strictly controlled parameters. Control plots are monitored daily to ensure your film receives quality and consistent results. Sheets are rotary processed using one shot chemicals. We can push/pull a max +-2 stops with a temperature based push for roll films, sheets +-3 with a time push.

Traditional Black & White

We process all B&W film using a rotary processor in a diluted D76 developer using one shot chemicals to ensure consistency between batches. Different film stocks require different processing times and are grouped for efficiency and economics. Please allow extra time for B&W orders.

Film Scanning

Work In Process prides its self on the quality of our digital output. We use Noritsu HS1800's for our processing orders and an Imacon Flextight for large scale scanning. We've spent a lot of time in the backend of our Noritsu's crafting one of a kind profiles to make your images shine their true potential. Along side our develop and process scanning, we offer scanning on pre-developed films, instant film and printed images.
