DIY B&W/C41 Development
Safelight Labs is your go to place to develop your own black and white film, C41 and (Coming soon!) Slide Film (E6). We supply the chemicals, tanks, and reels, you do the rest.
For black and white film, we develop using Kodak’s D76. If you have a specific developer you would like to use, give us a call.
For C41 color processing, we provide Cinestill C41 chemicals with the help of a Jobo to help keep the chemicals at the optimal temperature, ensuring you get the best results for every roll.
Only $5 per roll for development.
One of the most tedious processes in developing your own film is scanning. We are equipped with a Noritsu LS600 35mm scanner, as well as two Epson flatbed scanners. Scan a whole roll of 35mm film in less than 10 minutes on our Noritsu!
Only $2 per roll when developed here
$3 per roll by itself
