Hi there! Thanks for all your great information! Any places in kolkata for buying used film cameras?
I have been shooting film photography from quite some time. I am based ot if Bangalore and I usually go to Prabhu Digitals to develop my roll. Since last 2 years the developing price has exponentially rises, due to high demand of film photography I guess. Does any of you know of a cheaper and less expensive developing studio other than Prabhu Digitals at Bangalore. Thanks
I had been scouring for places to buy films in India (mainly South) tried a few contacts mentioned above, fortunately found a reliable site with reasonable prices that has a lot of film varieties, for those still looking, check out filmfotostore.com these guys are very fast.
I need to buy ra4 paper in rolls (same like for noritsu labs) and chemicals for the same. Any suppliers in India?

Looking for 35mm colour 50/100/200 iso film – does anyone know anywhere in Rajasthan that I might be able to get some? Or anyone that mail in the next 10 days. Thanks, Charlotte.
does anyone know where can i get a good condition film camera in jaipur ? or is there any contact from delhi who sells it ?
Good to find you, friends. I was checking up for availability of 35mm film for my cameras and landed here. Would the admin also start writing posts for guiding new-to-film-photography people. That will help them tonnes. Also, inclusion of how to develop b&w film can be explained. IN today’s environment, most film photographers will prefer their film scanned after development ranter than printing. Could you also let us know where scanning can be got done in various cities in India? Thanks. You are doing a great service.
Can you please suggest any place to buy used 35mm still cameras in the Delhi NCR region. i am a student looking for a cheap slr to explore the analogue format. Preferably a pentax k 1000. Any leads appericiated.

Admin sir, nice guide and thank you for sharing with all of us. I’m Subho from Kolkata and I am a film shooter. I can confirm that there is nobody developing color negative 120 size or medium format in kolkata as of September 2018. You have to send it outside. I am yet to try them but Prabhu at Bangalore (look for info above in this page) seems to be the best bet.
In about three months time, I will be opening up a studio for 35mm and 120 film development for C-41, Black and white film and E6 with a jobo setup and a high quality plustek opticfilm 120 scanner service for india wide development work. based in kolkata for all india service, with nominal charges. I hope that information will be included above once I am operational. Watch this space.

Hey there. I’m someone whos got an inkling that film photography may just be my secret calling. I really want to start from somewhere and explore this nagging thought. Are there any workshops anywhere in India where I could get an introduction. Also perhaps a place in Delhi where I can get a camera for a beginner.
Hi Gowri. I will get back to you for both. One of the cameras I would recommend for beginners is a Nikon FM10. But let me get back to you where to source it from in Delhi.

Hi Vanchinathan, not sure. Most of the high end scanning shops have wound up. The Fuji Frontier is a fantastic scanner though. Most of the shops we know use something like an Epson V700 Photo.
Thank you for you quick reply!
Yeah, I can see that.
It would be great to have one.
is 8mm or super 8 cartridge sold and processed in India? Or is it better to invest in something more mainstream like 35mm cameras?
Thanks. Anyone who can teach me part time or if I can learn while they are working will also help.

Hi Siddharth! Will find out about this…
Hi admin, do you know of any other shops in Delhi which keep 35mm film rolls? Also, if you’ve used expired film, please share your experience 🙂 Thanks
I am in Bhopal, just fixed my Yashica FX 7 and have used a 35 colour film to test the outcomes. Where can I buy a, do it yourself, film developing kit here. Or order online.
Appreciate the work. Thanks
Hi Pulkit. You can find it on Flipkart, Amazon, Sharpi.in, filmfotostore.com etc. Search for “35mm Film Roll” or “photo film”.
Hi Devyani. See the Delhi section of this page. Also there are many online stores selling 35mm film rolls in India. Expired film is always fun. You get unexpected results, pretty much like using certain Instagram filters. The grain and base fog is generally high. Sometimes you may get a magenta or blue-purple colour cast. Sometimes, if one corner of the roll was partially exposed to light, may have a higher density. It is fun.
Hi, any idea where can i find Yashica MG1 battery? My father has this camera but I cant find the battery anywhere. Not sure about the battery type. Can someone help pls?
Hi Siddharth. Try Amazon for “Exell Battery A32PX 6-Volt Alkaline Battery”. This battery, as per a review, works on Yashica MG-1 you mentioned.
Hey admin. Can you give me some details on getting started on film photography in Kochi? Where can I get these supplies? Thank you very much. Great work on the site!
Hi Joseph. While I am awaiting results from Kochi please look into Trivandrum…
Does anyone know where I can buy c41 Kits in India? or which website I can import it from?
Hi @Anil. I have mentioned many places online you can order your C41 kits from.
Hello, Any places that sell c41 kits? Online or Offline stores??
I live in Chennai but I can arrange logistics pan India.
Please see the online links given above. Plenty of guys selling it…
Is there any way to buy film cameras online in india? Or anywhere else in kerala?
Hari, its difficult. You can try the phone number of Sitaram Chimalgi given above. He is from Hyderabad and has some good options available.
Do you know any film developing studio or stores in kochi or near kochi…
Can anyone tell me if there is any film development labs in Patna, Bihar? Please let me know thank you
Hi, I have my dad’s Yashica MG1. But I am not sure if it still works. I dont see the aperture closing when I click shutter. is there any place where I can get it checked in LUCKNOW?
I also have to replace its battery but i thought before buying that, if i could have it checked.
Hi! Not sure if it can be checked in Lucknow. Can you send it to Mumbai?
Will find out and let you know…
I am trying to get it checked in Bangalore at the contact mentioned above. Will keep you posted on the progress. thanks
An update – I reached out to Mr. Prasanna for getting my camera serviced in Bangalore. He spoke very nicely and warmly. He sounded very old and experienced. He only deals with German and Russian cameras.
He gave me contact details of Mr. Yazdhani in Kolkata. His number is 9836215823. He handles japanese camera like Yashica. I will have to send my camera to him.
Thank you So much for updating us. Will add the number of Mr Yazdhani to the list.

Hi Kishore, just check the contacts listed for Delhi above. We have curated contacts of people who still DO process 35mm.
First off I wanna thank you for putting up a thread like this based on film photography,
Anyways only recently I’ve been gaining interests in film but its been disappointing and discouraging to say the least, cuz im from northeast India and there is zero shops or studios who even develop film
All the research led me to your site, but again as I visited the links you provided, I’ve failed to come across any site where they sell development kits and chemicals, even the mainstream sites like Amazon,
So I wrote this to get help from you!
Hi Pete. Where are you based out of?
I wanna start developing film myself but im having trouble finding the equipment like the tanks and chemicals, im based in pune so could u help me out. In future i also wanna start a darkroom for black and white printing so i also might need an enlarger any idea where i could find these supplies
Also I feel happy to find this website, its of great help to the people who want to get into film photography
Hi Anish! Good to hear you want to try film… I will send you details about buying tanks and chemicals to your email ID…
Hello, can anyone offer leads for 35mm film photo developing in Hyderabad?
Hi Aloha. Let me verify and get back to you.
I just want to thank the admin for still being active! I have read each and every comment and I love to see how you have replied to all. I am an amateur film photographer based in Vadodara, Gujarat. The last time I did film photography was in 4th std (11 years ago) on a school field trip and recently started my passion again (with the same Kodak Kroma). I send my films to Surender Patel (In Ahmedabad). And for buying new films I try to contact as many suppliers as I can cause they are expensive (I have to get them couriered in Vadodara). I contact many shops and repair guys because I want people to know that there are people who still follow film photography! But yes admin THANK YOU FOR THIS ARTICLE! AND ALL THE BEST TO ALL OF YOU, don’t give up if you don’t find any leads!
Hi Sakshi! Thanks for the kind words! Do share your analogue photos with us…
Hi! Do you know any places to get film developed in Bhopal or in MP? Thanks!

I live in Gurgaon, NCR

I called the listing for Hyderabad, “Chimalgi”, and they only develop black & white film so I think that should be updated
Since I’d have to mail my film regardless, does anyone have any recommendations or idea about the absolute best place to get it developed in India?
Also what are the range of prices for film here in India, say for a portra 400. I live in the US but come to India every summer, and have only one roll of film to last my entire summer now so I’d love to know if I can buy more film here or should I wait to get back to the US
