Lab-Box: the Multiformat Daylight-Loading Film Tank
NB: price includes free UK Tracked Shipping!
The famous ars-imago Lab-Box has arrived! Limited quantities in this first wave due to the unprecedented global demand.
NB: we also have the 35mm Lab-Box available here
The multiformat Lab-Box is the easiest way to develop your film without needing a darkroom or changing bag - simply follow these steps:
- Select the module (35mm or 120) depending on the film you want to develop
- Attach the module to the main tank
- Insert the roll, close up the module and use the main tank and external knobs to develop the roll without having to find a dark room or turning off the lights!
- Remove the film and marvel at your photographic genius
Please refer to the below video for a visual aid - or download the full user guide here
If you have any questions or concerns please (1) check out the FAQs on ars-imago's site (2) get in contact via our contact page

The Analogue WonderLab
When you’ve shot your roll of film and are looking to get it developed and scanned, then look no further than the Analogue WonderLab!
We can process your film for you, scan it at the resolution you need, and email back the files quickly and securely.
We offer FREE tracked shipping to our lab so that you can send us your negatives with total peace of mind. And our lab team are all passionate film shooters themselves, so you know that your film will get the best possible treatment!
Head to the WonderLab page here to read more details, or add the bundled developing above when you purchase your film.
Please note that our long-term aim is to offer developing for every film that we sell, but this is a work-in-progress. For full details and FAQs please head here
How Does the Bundled Developing Work?
To make your analogue adventures even easier (and cheaper!) we’ve implemented the option to pre-pay for your processing when you buy your film. This means that you choose your developing and scanning options on this page, via the little tick-box above, and add everything to basket for an immediate 10% saving on all processing costs.
Your film will be dispatched in line with our usual shipping times (full details here) and you will also get an email with instructions on sending the film back to the WonderLab (with tracked shipping - on us!)
When you have shot the film - whether that takes you a day, month or year - you generate the free tracked postage label by following the simple instructions from the email, and pop it in the post with a note of your original order number. We’ll do the rest!
So buy the bundle and relax into the shooting process, knowing that you’ll get to see the final results from your photography, without having to reach for your wallet again.
We send all parcels via TRACKED service - free in the UK for orders of film over £50.
This means that when you buy your film from us you will be emailed a tracking link at dispatch, and will be able to follow your parcel’s journey all the way to safe arrival.
Please note that it is not a signed service so you won’t need to be at home to receive your film, and our letterbox-friendly boxes fit through the vast majority of European letterboxes!
You will have different shipping options and costs at checkout, depending on how quickly you need your film. Please refer to the Delivery Details page for full information
