Film Processing

Peak Imaging are renowned as the UK's No.1 film processing laboratory. Film processing is the first and the most critical element in creating high quality images. For reliability and consistency we use Refrema processing machinery, operated and monitored by skilled technicians using the Fuji Oasis Pro quality control system. A manufacturers control strip is placed with each batch of film processed and this is carefully analysed and plotted against a master strip supplied by the film manufacturer.

Our naturally soft water helps eliminate drying marks and the use of hangers rather than rollers ensures a scratch-free environment. That’s why top photographers throughout the UK send their films to Peak Imaging.

Non Standard Film - We can also process 127, 126, 110 and a selection of obselete film including Kodachrome and C-22. Click here for details.

E6 Process for Colour Transparency Films - We process all makes of 35mm, 120 and 5x4 E6 process colour transparency film, however we can only process Kodachrome via our black and white process.

Speed Changes - For the best possible results you should always use the manufacturers recommended speed rating. However for a small extra charge we can up-rate (increase speed) by up to 3 stops or down-rate (decrease speed) by a maximum of one stop. Please note that speed changes are carried out at the customer's risk and there may be some loss in quality on film processed with a speed change of more than one stop. If you wish to make use of this facility, please ensure that you mark your films and order carefully with unambiguous instructions.
