Film Developing and Printing

we develop, scan and print

We have been film developing and film printing for the people of Cambridge ever since we opened in 1952. During that time we have seen the introduction of digital and the decline of film. Fear not, however, as shooting with film is back and becoming popular again.

As film shooters, we love the creative and limiting process of using a mechanical object to produce a tangible photo and the excitement of waiting to see how the photos came out.

Super quick service when I needed new passport photos.

Very polite and welcoming staff. A little overpriced for an Indian who recently moved to the UK. But also very transparent about the cheapest options available.

I am a novice photographer and went into the shop looking for advice on which type of lens I needed to do a specific type of photography. While they didn't have the lens I needed in stock Will was unbelievably helpful taking time to explain (in layman's terms) what I needed and how to get the best out of the lenses I already have. I will definitely be back and will be supporting this shop in the future. It is great to find a shop with such fabulous customer service.
