Australia's small gauge film specialists
Interruption to service!
The nanolab team will be in Mexico from the 6th of March to the 4th of April. During this time you can still send in your films, but there will be around a three week turn around on receiving the upload. There will be no 'next batch' service available during this time. We apologise for the inconvenience. Film stock will continue to be available as usual.
We now have an online order form for film processing!
Please use this form for processing film
the form will generate a pdf invoice for you which will be forwarded by email.
And we also have a new online order form for purchasing film stock!

BLACK AND WHITE CUSTOMERS, PLEASE NOTE
WE NOW PROCESS TRI-X AND OTHER BLACK AND WHITE STOCK AS NEGATIVES, NOT AS POSITIVES. This gives far greater exposure latitude than processing as a positive, and will also significantly improve our black and white turn around times. If you need the black and white film you shot developed as a positive for projection on a traditional super 8 film projector, black and white reversal processing is available from Hanna Chetwin at AFW in Melbourne. Please email email@example.com
Nanolab can now offer scans in 4K! Our 4K transfers have a pixel ratio of 3840 x 2160. The 4k scan will show you the entire film perforation as well as the old 'sound track' edge without the traditional black bars on the sides of the 4:3 super 8 image. This is ideal for a 4K timeline. Also ideal if you want to take a 16:9 slice from your 4:3 super 8 frame for an HD or 2k timeline. You can choose that slice yourself! Cost for the 4K transfer is $50 per roll.
Our preferred method of data delivery now is just by upload. No need to send any media!
A note about sending in film for processing: you don't need to wrap your film in anything. Just put it in a bubble bag. Please don't wrap it in tape. This just makes it time consuming for us to open up your job. It also wastes tape! So just pop it in a bubble bag without tape or the foil bag or the box. Just the film please! We will love you for it, promise.
Nanolab is a super 8 processing lab. We develop super 8 film here
on site in Victoria! Yes, the films you send us for developing can
also be trasnferred to digital by us. We generally don't transfer
films not developed at the lab, simply becuse our transfer setup
runs at capacity with the films we develop. We no longer process
old types of film I'm afraid. So for any Kodachrome, Agfachrome,
Agfa Moviechrome, Pacific, Focal, or 160asa films, you need to send
them to filmrescue.com in Canada.
For 16mm colour and black and white reversal processing, contact
Hanna Chetwin from Artist Film Workshop: firstname.lastname@example.org Hanna also processes super 8 black and white reversal (as a positive)
For black and white negative 16mm, contact Brice Vieka on email@example.com

new at nanolab:
Kodak has released a new super 8 film! It is Ektachrome 100d / 7294, a 100 speed, daylight balanced colour reversal film. (This is on top of the 3 colour negative films and one black and white film that Kodak make for Super 8 - see our film stock page for all the offerings). This new Ektachrome film is the only colour reversal (colour positive) film available in super 8! It is very beautiful. But it is also quite expensive. Cost is $70 per roll. We are keeping a small volume of this in stock at the moment. If you buy it, we can develop it for you. A few notes about this film. This is the ONLY currently available colour film that you can project in a super 8 film projector. If you must be able to project your film in a traditional film projector, this is the film for you. BUT unlike with colour negative, with colour reversal film exposure is CRITICAL. You MUST have a camera with a working light meter to use this stock, buautiful though it is. Also note that given the price we are getting very few of these films in to process. As such, there is no quick turn around for this stock. Expect developing to take a couple of weeks.
Read the following:
nano lab processes all films using manual equipment. There
are no machines! This means there can be no scratches caused
by build-up on rollers. Hand processing allows us to process
your film quickly and using fresh chemistry. We don't need
to wait for large batches or use potentially ageing chemistry.
In this way our turn around time is generally only a few days.
Having said that, it is important to note that we are only
human. We make absolutely every effort to process your film
to the highest possible standard, but like any lab we can
take no responsibility for any loss or damage that may occur,
even through our own negligence or that of our agents. Our
liability is limited to the value of the film stock as a maximum
and is determined at our discretion.
