They take a little longer but they are very thorough. Slightly more expensive, too.

Many people recommend them. I find them really overpriced and rude.

  1. Hello,

    Could you tell me, which one of these places develops rollfilm (120)?

  2. I think they all do, but some will take a while, around 1 week. I would call and ask!

  3. I really dislike photo scientific. Pretty unfriendly. They can do 1 hour development though, so that is a plus!

  4. Have tried Filme in Causeway Bay (http://www.thefilme.com). A bit expensive but service was good and their scans are better than others. Have also tried Color Six and Dotwell. To be honest, none of these 3 have been consistent. Some good experiences but then some not so good.

  8. I-m-ageplayground is a good one too! They have their own darkroom.

  9. Please avoid East Asia 'Professional' - $70 for scans at a measily 1000 x 1500 resolution - barely 1.5 megapixels. Surely that can't be right.

    1. Oh wow, that is for the scans only? That's ridiculous.

  10. Do anyone have recommendation for professional quality printing for A3+ size prints.

  11. Best printer is Danny Chau digital in Chai Wan. He prints for Magnum and National Geographic photographers. Michael Yamashita personally recommended him. He also helps you adjust your images to the preferred tone if needed :)

  13. Miramar Photo Supplies as of 26/09/16 - Not true. b/w Processing 35HKD and scan + 50HKD. Takes three days!! You must of gone there in 1990!

  14. Hey there,thanks for the update. Prices iImentioned are for color development. I paid 45 last week for scan and developing of a color film. I think they outsource bw (and the prices in the 90s were similar)
    I have a feeling they will close soon anyway, business is not very good for them.
    If you have any other suggestions, please post them here. Cheers.
