Has anyone had any non-digital photos developed recently? If so, can you recommend a developer in SE1? I had a film developed yesterday and am not overly impressed with the results: all of the pictures look really grainy, as if they've been printed out on a low resolution printer. Of course, that could be down to the film I was using, but I'd like to get copies developed from the negatives before blaming the film...

I've heard that the chemist/pharmacy on Borough High Street makes good prints. Might be worth a try.

Try Boots in Lower Marsh - or at the Elephant & Castle shopping centre. It may seem an odd recommendation, but they use a Kodak lab and I have always had good results from them

i am sure there was on old thread on this, but i can't find it.

have you tried snapy snaps london bridge?
i have developed numerous films there, and they were always pretty ok. if the colouriung was off i told them and they reprinted them.

depending on the film you used, or if it was severely underexposed, the grain could be explained.
hope this hepls.

Colourama? or Colorama did have a place opposite the borough polytechnic, cant think of the name of the street, I think they actually developed them there. a small trade counter where you could hand them in. just looked in directory 61 webber street, 7261 1082

Snappy snaps are the best by far - the london bridge brach is good, but the wardour st and air st, in w1 are even better. I'm speaking as someone with a professional interest in photography...buut with no connection etc

I agree snappy snaps are good - i had a film developed by them, and to my amazement when I went to pick it up, THEY told ME that they hadn't been happy with the result, so had reprinted them, and then gave me both sets so I could pick and choose from them. Great service, they'll definitely be getting my business again. No connections etc etc

Thanks for the suggestions. Snappy Snaps is where I had the film processed originally, but I think I'll go back and tell them that I'm not happy with the results and see if they'll reprint the pics.
