Update 09 – 2018-06-21: 334 labs / 56 countries
58 labs added, 32 updated and five new countries on the map. Special thanks to Tibo Alberny and John Whitmore for their help cleaning up all the submissions. More updates to come very soon!

With the help of some lovely folks from all over the internet, as well as a few of my own notes (kept on napkins and cigarette packets over the years), I present to you an in-exhaustive map of places you can get your film developed and scanned – worldwide.

Each of the labs you’ll see on the map below are real, active and have been used by yours truly, or members of the film photography community.
This is a living, breathing map and will be constantly updated with m

re detail – better information on services, film formats developed, scanning options, public darkroom facilities, wet printing (color and black and white) – everything we can get our hands on. Scroll to the bottom of this page to submit your own updates.

We started off with ~60 labs in 15 countries in September 2016 and at the time of the last update on June 21st 2018, now list 334 labs in 58 countries. More updates will be coming very soon as I clear out a bit of a backlog. Please contribute labs not yet covered, as well as details not yet currently included for existing listings.

In addition, if there’s some detail that you feel should be added to all of the listings (turnaround times?), please let me know either in the comments below.

If you’re having difficulty loading the map below, you can also view it directly on Google Maps here. You can also add this map as an overlay in your iOS or Android Google Maps app.

Can’t seem to search? No problem: click on the top right icon and you’ll be able to view the map in full screen and search away to your heart’s content.

  10. adding a great lab in israel:

    i’m not sure if they have an english website but here’s the link for the hebrew version anyway (google translate?)
    the lab is open sunday to thursday till 20:00 (!)
    and gives proffessional (and personal) service
    develops B&W, color, e6, and gives prints and high quality scans

  11. In Poznań Poland there are 3 more great photolabs other than fotoma.
    First one is on Cyryla Ratajskiego square, there you can also buy papers, and chemicals for your darkroom.
    Another one is Foto Viva in a shopping mall (Kupiec Poznański), this is the last place in Poznań where they develop your film in less than an hour.
    The last one is called Fotogajek and is on Kramarska Street (really close to the old market square – so it is the best for tourists shooting film) they also have lots of films for sale.
    In Poznań there are some smaller photolabs as well – mostly making prints and photos for IDs but if you bring film to them they’ll probably develop it in a week.

  12. Photoworks SF for local and Mail Order processing, scanning, prints,etc. C41/B&W/E6 & Xpro. I’ve been using them for 5 years. Negatives are always super clean and turn around is very decent. My favorite because I like the process only prices & I scan myself.

    136½ Pine Street

      1. No known public address of hipercatlab, probably because it’s not a shop/business. However, I’ve another lab for Jakarta,

      1. They’re currently inactive over social media, and I’m not sure if they sell film online. They do have a walk-in shop, and might sell film there.
        Also, my hires scans were from a Noritsu machine so far. They could be using fuji previously or just for standard scans

      2. I’m living in San Diego, and went to Nelson Photo Supplies a couple times. They sell, dev+scan film in their shop and certainly isn’t a public darkroom. Unfortunately I forgot their prices. Here’s their fb page https://www.facebook.com/NelsonPhotoSupplies/
        Also, another store for San Diego is George’s Camera. They offer c41 dev+scan ($4 for 35mm c41 dev, +$9 for scan or +$15 for hires) in their North Park main store, but send push/pull or B&W film offsite to Swan Labs and $4 extra for this option.
