The famous ars-imago Lab-Box has arrived at Analogue Wonderland!

Please note that this is the 35mm variant - if you wish to develop 120 film then please add the 120 module or purchase the 'Multiformat' Lab-Box.

The 35mm Lab-Box is the easiest way to develop your film without needing a darkroom or changing bag - simply follow these steps:

  1. Ensure the 35mm module is attached to the tank
  2. 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!
  3. Remove the film and marvel at your photographic genius

Charlie McConnochie
Love this lab box

Lab box and d96 monobath take the mystery out of the processing of film - so simple. Think I'll be using this a lot from now on as I learn to refine doing it all myself.

Shaun Hodgson
Wonderfully easy to use!

My usual experience of developing film at home leaves me stressed and grumpy, all that fumbling around with hands getting hotter and hotter in a dark bag! Nothing like that with the lab-box. Easy and stress free, I reckon my first film was completed in 30 minutes from start-to-finish. Would definitely recommend the lab-box for anyone wanting to process one film at a time. Really very pleased.

Bailey White
Great after you get used to it

It can be a bit fiddly at first, and your first roll won't come out great, but after some practice its fantastic! Would definitely recommend!

Kevin Gorman
Photos in under 10 mins!

Firstly I got a 1st class service from the guys at Analogue Wonderland! So big shout out to them! And secondly what can I say about the Ars Imago Lab-Box! It is simply a great bit of kit! So easy to use and your film is developed in under 10 mins, no messing around with dark bags or turning the toilet into a darkroom it is simply from camera to box - job done! Also, I find using the Ars Imago A + B Monobath helps simplify the process! Best Buy in ages!
