FPP is short-hand for the Film Photography Project: a US-based collection of projects headed up by the charismatic Mike Raso. They are most famous within the global film community for their podcast (entering it's 10th year in existence) as well as the associated School Camera Donation Program whereby donations are sought and sorted to bring analogue photography back into high schools and colleges all over the country. Not only that but Mike also runs the FPP store which sells a multitude of analogue film products all over the US and hand-rolls a fantastic selection of unique films. We are honoured to bring some of those films to the European market and hope you enjoy shooting them as much as Mike has making them!

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.

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

Good Starter Kit.

I wanted to try developing colour film as I have been developing my own B&W film for quite some time and was feeling confident enough to expand my skills. Analogue Wonderland had one of these in stock I decided to give it go. It's easy to use and does have an instruction leaflet that even I couldn't mess up. Temperatures are in fahrenheit, but it's easy to convert to celcius with modern tech at our disposal. Be Warned, Blix Stinks! I'm glad I heeded the safety advice and had a mask on and plenty of ventilation when mixing and using that particular stage in the process. Apart from that stinky bit the process is very easy to follow and getting the developer and blix to working temperatures is easy with a sous vide and a water bath. I bought a big plastic tub and some jugs from a local household goods store for not a lot of cash and the tub is where I store my gear after I have finished cleaning up afterwards. As long as you keep air out of your chemicals you will get more than 8 films from this kit and extend your times as the chemicals begin to weaken through use. There is a handy video on the Film Photography Project you tube channel where Michael Raso walks us through the process that I found very helpful. I would use this product again in future. I know there are better kits than the Unicolour C41 from the FPP, but for a novice this is a good starter kit.

First time using C-41!

Nice and easy to follow instructions (I think .. I got my son to do the mixing!).

Only small niggle was that this kit says it doesn't include stabiliser which isn't required for modern emulsions. My films were dead old so took advice from SUPER helpful Emily at AW who dug around the developing community for me. Advice was it's not a bad idea to stabilise anyway, so I bought some separately ahead of this kit arriving ... only to find it DOES include stabiliser!

Never mind, developed three films so far and all good.

Much easier than I expected!

Spent years developing BW and being terrified of C41, but it's really not that bad at all! The FPP kit comes with clear step by step instructions, chemicals are easy to mix and easy to use, and seem to produce great results. Lots of online reading has made me paranoid about the chemicals going bad after even a short time, but after 3-4 weeks in bottles the results we pretty much identical to freshly mixed.

Great Stuff

I’ve been waiting to replenish my stock and now it’s available again. I get as good results with this as any other C41 kit. As powder, the shipping is much cheaper than the liquid kits. My current batch is 9 months old, done 18 films and still working well - stored in fridge with air displaced. Really easy to use as a 3 step process.

Very handy!

I'm on my 2nd kit now and there are very few comparable options if you want to take shots on a Sunday and have images on Monday morning. Well, not in my neck of the woods.

Results got a wee bit muddy towards the end of it's life span on the 1st kit, but that was (I suspect) because I took several month to get through 6 colour 35mm films and 2 120s.

Example shot using Kodak ColorPlus @200 in a Nikon f5 with a Nikon 85mm f/1.8d, scanned on an Epson v550 using SilverFast software.
