Developing Film (for Photographers)


Today we received an enquiry about developing silver halide film.

As for black and white, it seems possible to procure developing equipment at the artist’s expense and have the film developed in studio, but when it comes to colour film, I don’t think it is possible in Hirono.

There are some photographic studios in the neighbouring city of Iwaki that might be able to do it, but if not, it might be better to go to Sendai or Mito, or even better, to Ueno or Akihabara.

In the past, same-day development was commonplace, but nowadays it is often finished the next day.

In any case, there is nothing that can’t be done in Sendai or Tokyo about photograph, including medium or large-format film.

The same applies to scanning of films that have already been developed, which can probably be managed by consulting the Sendai, Ueno or Akihabara branch of Yodobashi Camera.

Finally, this is not important, but I was a clerk at the Yodobashi Camera Sendai shop when it opened, back in February 1994.
