    I have had the unfortunate experience of losing a full C6 black and white roll of film which was destroyed during development. I was told this was because the roll became detached from the processing rack while in the developer bath and was not discovered till the end of the processing run, after which the roll could not be salvaged. This was obviously bitterly disappointing. Staff have expressed regret and unrecoverable errors are an unfortunate fact of manual film development. Still, I have not lost a roll of film in many years of shooting on traditional formats. Skilled tradespeople and reliable equipment are becoming harder to find as film has become an enthusiasts hobby. I would recommend going to a specialist who may charge higher prices for this work but who could carry it out with painstaking care than risk immeasurable and unrecoverable loss.

    Very nice and well informed staff. My experience thus far with having my artwork scanned digitally has been a great learning experience for me. From now on, if I have anything to frame, even if it's a 5 by 7 photo, I will take it here to have "cleaned up". Well worth it! (I took an Inked paw print on a piece of white paper in to have it scanned and photoshopped: once it was scanned in, I saw how yellow the paper was that I used and all of its flaws, and when I got the edited version I couldn't have been happier. The manager is great, as is Dave.

    Went in to get a few rolls of color 120 film developed and scanned. Ended up being fairly expensive but I was expecting the scans to be good given the reviews. I came back to pick up the film and was given a CD which was an annoyance since it’s such an outdated medium and good, cheap cloud sharing services exist in 2018. Once I finally tracked down a computer with a cd drive I opened the files to find either a booger or a seed or something on one of the scans... Paying about $20/roll for subpar jpegs with “things” in them is completely not worth it. For being the only game in town I would expect better. Looks like I’ll have to ship my rolls up to a lab in philly or nyc to get the job done right. Really a shame.

    Went here for an international passport photo - they made sure it met the standards perfectly and it was quick and easy. Definitely recommend.
