Please remember, that the Santa 1000 RAE emulsion is new outside the powers of the north! It is originally ment to be developed in special machines and with propietary chemistry at high heat. However with over 3000 rolls being already spread across the globe, many developing recipes for human chemistry have been tested by the community. Below are some of the best when rating the film at ISO 1000:

  • Kodak D76, Kodak XTOL
  • Silberra AKFF
  • Kodak HC-110 (also stand and semi-stand)
  • Rodinal (stand)
  • Caffenol-C Recipe

For full details on developing recipes then head to the Santa1000 website here

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!

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

My favourite high speed film stock

I adore Santa Rae film - I develop in Ilford DD-X and was pleasently surprised by how little grain I got. Just beautiful images

Versatile Film

I managed to get some of the first batch of Santa 1000 from my friend the Rogue Analogue Elf to try it. I was not disappointed! This film can handle a lot of differing light situations and it is possible to alter your iso on the roll without having to do too much messing about with development. There are a few tried and trusted developers including my personal faves HC-110 and Rodinal that work well with this film. Stand Developing is a great choice if you have been playing with iso to match the lighting, but there are quite a few combinations of developers and times on the Santa 1000 website and the Massive Dev Chart to choose from. The only downside is the film has a very thin base layer which can make it tricky to load onto your reels if you do home developing. Take care with it and you will have some great images that ooze contrast.
