For years, traditional Black & White film processing has been limited to a handful of labs and bathroom chemists. East Coast Film Lab offers professional B&W film processing and scanning through our facility in Wilmington, NC. Whether you’re shooting HP5+, Tri-X, Eastman XX, Pan F, or any other emulsion, we have the experience and expertise to provide you with unrivaled quality. We are not just lab geeks, we are all film shooters ourselves. So while one of us is an absolute HP5+ junkie, we don’t discriminate.
B&W film is processed by hand with machine agitation, enabling us to use almost any developer available. Our lab standard is TMax developer, meticulously tracked for exhaustion, but the sky is the limit. If you are a 4×5 shooter, we process sheet film in Rodinal 1+50. Standard B&W turnaround is 2-3 days, from drop-off to download, but if you don’t mind waiting, we can do custom process developing on request. If you prefer D-23, Rodinal 1+100 stand developing, Caffenol, XTol, or any other-ol, we can process to your exact specifications.
We process any B&W format of roll film, and sheet film up to 5×7, so turn on the lights, get out of the bathroom, and start shooting!
