How to you get your 35mm and 120 films developed

  1. Please (please) read this lengthy description thoroughly. We have been doing this for some time now, and based on prior interactions, we have included information that will answer 99.99% of the questions that you may have. If you ask us for information already referred to here, we will send you a screenshot of the pertinent section. We can keep our costs low by using automation as much as possible and limiting our interactions through DM and emails.

    If you must have a human interaction, consider using Walgreens, CVS, or Walmart for your film processing needs.

  2. Place the order online. 

    Due to an active travel schedule, contact @artbypino on Instagram to find an ETA for processing your order BEFORE placing it. We suggest Instagram because that is how we keep our Customers informed of our updates, including travel schedules. Alternatively, you may text us at (956) 492-7140.

  3. Mail the film using USPS with tracking.

    We recommend leaving the film in the plastic canister; for extra protection, ship it in a padded envelope or cardboard box. Be sure to include your order number and contact information.

  1. What kind of films do you process? We process 35mm films, 120 medium format films, and 4x5 large format sheets. In color (C41, E6 slide films, ECN-2), black and white (BW), and disposable cameras. For ECN-2, we send the films to Midwest Film Company which uses true ECN-2 chemistry for developing to give a true cinematic look. We also process 110, 126, 127, C22, and all other film formats. Pricing and turnaround for these will be quoted upon request.

  2. Do you return the negatives? Depending on the package you select, we do. If you prefer that we destroy the negatives, please email us at to authorize us.

  3. Do you provide scans or digital copies of my processed films? Yes, we share them through Google Drive, so you must use your Google ID when placing the order to avoid delays or experiencing problems accessing the images we share with you. The photos are only shared with your email ID; they are not publicly accessible. Your pictures are yours, and they stay private. To copy them over to a zip or USB drive will be an additional $10 if you provide the zip or USB drive. If you would like a CD copy of the images, it is $10 extra.

    Half-frame cameras for 35mm are charged an extra $12. You must combine the images in post-processing to get a 3D effect or create a gif.

  4. How long will it take to get my film processed? There are various levels of pricing. One is for fourteen (14) business days (not calendar), and another is for twenty-one (21) business days (not calendar) that applies only to BW films as the number of places doing BW films (correctly) are limited. Such sites use true BW chemistry, not color chemistry, to process your films.

    All turnaround times are based on best efforts, meaning that we may be, due to COVID-19, weather delays, or a shortage of film processing chemicals due to a global supply chain issue, etc., unable to meet those timelines. There will be no refunds, partial refunds, or credits for delayed delivery of your order. Still, we will try our best to deliver them within those timeframes. All of those timeframes are for the delivery of scans only. Prints ordered or negatives to be returned will take additional time. 

    All options require the films to be received before 1p on a Monday.

  5. Can you push/pull my film? Yes, the price for push/pull is $5 per stop.

  6. Can you provide prints of my film pictures? The economical option is to order developing + scans and then pick only those images you want to print. Since you will have digital photos, you can get the pictures printed at a place of your choice. You can upload those images to Walgreens, Walmart, Costco, or MPIX (best results). 

    Prints from existing negatives are quoted upon request, and prices vary based on size and paper selection.

What makes your film lab developing services different?

  1. Depending on your selected service, we use Noritsu or Fujitsu commercial-grade scanners (Frontier). For example, 120 ECN-2 scanning is DSLR and not scanner-based.

  2. If you are a newbie learning film photography, this one is critical - if you go to folks that offer hand-developing, unlike machine developing, you will not get consistent results from one roll to the next. So, you are always left guessing whether it is your photography that is off or if it is the person developing the film. So, modifying your shooting parameters based on a hand-developed film (especially on C41 and E6) is an unreliable variable in your learning of film photography.

  3. If you are learning film photography, we provide feedback on any or all of your images upon request. We will Coach you on where & how to improve based on your learning goals and suggest films to consider. Online film development places view you as a transaction and don't provide this valuable service.

Do you sell films?

We sell 35mm, 120 medium formats, and 4x5 sheet films. 30+ varieties of 35mm and 120 films are available.

Do you sell film cameras?

Yes, we sell film cameras, but our cameras are priced higher than you will find online because we strive to give you Total Peace of Mind.

  1. We take the time to understand your film photography needs and goals. You are not just a transaction to us. We want your film photography journey to be as rewarding to you as it has been for us.

  2. Our cameras include a 30-day warranty. Where appropriate, expert technicians have overhauled the camera.

  3. You have lifetime support to get answers to your film photography questions during our working hours.
