What is disposable camera film developing?

We develop disposable cameras to turn your finished disposable camera into negatives that can be scanned and used for printing your images.

If you order 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!

Please note that we do not currently offer prints.

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


How do I know what type of film I have?

It will usually say somewhere on the disposable camera (or box if you still have it!)

You could also look up the camera in our store by searching this page: All Film and checking their 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 or questions about how we develop disposable camera 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 four resolution options:

Scan type Resolution File Size File Type Retouching*
Low Res 1500 x 1024 pixels <1MB JPEG Standard
Standard 3637 x 2433 pixels 1-2 MB JPEG Standard
Premium 5444 x 3648 pixels 4-5 MB JPEG Professional
Premium TIFF 5444 x 3648 pixels 50-60 MB TIFF Professional


Low Res --> Best for social media / photo albums!
Low Res scans are perfect for printing or displaying 6x4 inches - they will also work well on social media or website where you need to keep loading speeds fast.

Standard --> Best for personal websites / zines / projects!
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 --> Best for exhibits / large prints!
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 prints up to size A3

Premium TIFF --> Best for home editors and professional display!
Premium 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.

*All of your images will get Standard retouching and fixing (rotation, file naming, basic dust removal). Colour films will also go through the ICE process that automatically removes many scratches and objects on the surface of the emulsion. Please note that this may still leave some artefacts on your image that are an integral part of the analogue look!

However if you order Premium JPEG or TIFF then our team will invest extra time to deliver a Professional retouching service: eliminating every speck of dust and artefact from each frame so they are ready to be printed/edited at a professional level. This will give you the CLEANEST POSSIBLE SCANS!


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.

Loved my images, so easy to use and the results are amazing!

Took a bit longer but it was worth the wait

It took a total of 13 days from posting to delivery (to be fair it was 9 working days so the lab wasn't overdue from their shown turnaround time). The photos came organised in a way that makes it easier to view and download. Overall satisfied with the quality of the images.

I bought this disposable camera completely on a whim for Wireless Festival and took ages to send it off - but the photos came out great.
