What is 35mm film developing?

35mm film development is when we use chemistry and analogue magic ūü™Ą to turn your exposed 35mm film into negatives that can be scanned and used for printing your images.

If you order 35mm development you will only receive your physical negatives back. If you require digital images that can be viewed on your computer or phone then please select one of our scanning services in addition!

For full details of our lab services - including FAQs about postage, chemistry and more - please read here!

ÔĽŅAnd let us know in the order notes if you would rather your 35mm film was cut into strips of 6 rather than the standard 4.


How do I know what type of film I have?

It will usually say on the 35mm film canister (or box if you still have it!)

You could also look up the film in our store by searching this page: All Film and checking its specifications.

The most common ones are colour C-41 which is the 'standard' colour negative film, and black and white (B&W).

If you have any concerns of questions about your 35mm film then just drop a line to our live chat - or email lab@analoguewonderland.co.uk - and we'll quickly help you to the right choice.


What are the scanning options?

We offer three resolution options:

Scan type Resolution File Size File Type
Standard 3637 x 2433 pixels 1-2 MB JPEG
Premium 5444 x 3648 pixels 4-5 MB JPEG
Premium TIFF 5444 x 3648 pixels 50-60 MB TIFF

Standard scans will be absolutely fine for posting on social media, personal websites, emailing to friends/family, and for making prints up to size A4

Premium scans are bigger and can also be used for posting on websites that can accept larger files (and won't simply compress that back down like Instagram or Facebook) - and they can make print up to size A3

TIFF scans are much bigger file sizes, so prepare for a longer download time and more computer memory needed! The bonus of this is that they contain much more information within the same number of pixels as the Premium JPEG scans, so you can edit them yourself (in Photoshop or similar) and get much better results with strong edits.

TIFF is a 'lossless' format, so hasn't had any compression applied by software before arriving in your inbox. It also means that even though the pixel resolution is the same as the Premium scan, you should be able to print slightly larger without loss of meaningful detail - up to size A2.


What are sprockets?

Sprocket scanning is when the film is scanned with the perforations or sprocket holes to be part of the image. We offer this service at an additional cost and it will add up to 2 days to your film turnaround time as it is a very manual process.


Develop your 35mm film

This is where you can buy 35mm film developing - with a full set of options for your perfect tailored service.

We process 35mm film, scan 35mm film, and send it all back to you - with free postage both ways!

Please note that we can also develop 120, 110 and more on the way. Head to our WonderLab page for the full choice of formats.

At the moment we are only offering 35mm film developing and scanning services for customers in the UK. This may change in the future - please join our mailing list to hear our store news.

We commit to turning your colour film around within 5 working days and your Black & White film within 7 working days.

*If you order Sprocket Scanning please note that the turnaround time will be up to 2 days longer*

This may fluctuate, particularly as it is difficult to anticipate busy periods, but if we are running later than normal then we will always let you know.

If you require a special turnaround to hit a specific deadline then please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate. This may come with an additional cost, depending on the volume and the deadline, which will be clearly laid out in advance of your final decision.

Fantastic Lab

I have just recieved my first roll back from my new Nikon F100 camera, I bought the Rollei Superpan 200 with development and scans from Analogue Wonderland. The process was easy from receiving my film to returning my film with the return label supplied by this lab. The images came back quickly and I am so pleased. The quality is great! I have been shooting previously with a reusable point and shoot camera, so I wasn't sure what to expect from my new second-hand camera. I was not disappointed and I can't wait to send off my next roll of film to this lab.

Fast professional service

This is the second time I have used the Wonderlab. I love the fact that all of the costs are up front and the headline price includes postage. Processing was the quickest I have ever had from a postal service, and it was almost as fast as going to my local high street lab.
The scans were great too on the whole, One or 2 looked a little on the cyan side, but nothing to complain about.

Great development

Great development. I sent 5 rolls and it took 6 days total between the time I sent the films and when I received the scan! Great quality! I will use the service again!

Kodak Gold and Ilford HP5 Scans looking great

Gold HP5 sent in for process and TIF scans. Scans look awesome, well balanced exposure and both Gold and HP5 carrying the look I expect from those films. No need for Lightroom :)
