Black & White Services

Black and White films are developed using Kodak Professional XTOL developer. This gives full emulsion speed with fine grain and can be used for push processing most films. We can also handle all Infra-Red films.

Films are developed to a gamma / contrast index of CI 0.58 (suitable for diffusion light source enlargers and printers).

Printing is carried out on industry leading Ilford Black and White Multigrade resin coated paper offering a high gloss or matt finish.

Machine paper processing is through Kodak Professional Polymax RT chemicals.
