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.

Happy Shooting!

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

Makes life so much easier

Despite being a photographer for over 40 years, I had never tried developing at home. With kits like this available I really didn't have an excuse and took the plunge. I'm so glad I did because it worked out well and I'm hooked. I made a video here unboxing the kit. https://youtu.be/Er3c6S55NKs and another here where I use it. https://youtu.be/MJbUOwaOspE

The Perfect Starter Pack

Having not developed for 10 years and this being the first time owning my own kit I wanted to get it right (and was very happy when it worked well!), and this supplies everything you need minus the chemicals and storage bottles (which I think are best to look around and choose whats right for you anyway), arrives in a good sized box which I have continued to keep the equipment in after using. Everything you need without any wasteful extras.

Home set-up complete

With this, a changing bag and a few chemicals, I now have all I need to set up at home. My local lab has always been great but I wanted more control of the development and can now play around with the proccess to my hearts content. Saving money on developping also means I now have more to spend on film!

Great kit for home developing

This box has pretty much everything required to develop B&W film at home. The equipment feels well put together and made to last, the tank fits up to two 35mm rolls and doesn't leak, and the thermometer is easy to read. Since purchasing, I have successfully developed numerous rolls of B&W film using this kit.

I bought a film cannister opener (glorified bottle opener), and some chemicals separately.

Occasionally film will snag & pop off of the plastic reel when loading - most often towards the end of the roll as the tension increases. I've found this can be mitigated by guiding the film with my thumbs into the cassette while using very slow cranking movements.

Developing starter kit

The kit contains all the basics for home film processing in a darkroom except the chemicals. I also purchased a dark bag as I don't have a proper darkroom.

Excellent value and quality, quick efficient service which has meant that I can continue to work at home
