    does anyone know where can i get a good condition film camera in jaipur ? or is there any contact from delhi who sells it ?

  41. 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.

    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.

    Dear admin
    is 8mm or super 8 cartridge sold and processed in India? Or is it better to invest in something more mainstream like 35mm cameras?

  119. Siddharth says:

    Thanks. Anyone who can teach me part time or if I can learn while they are working will also help.

    Looking film roll and developing studio in Cochin Kerala ?

  121. Viswajith says:

    Where to buy and develop Film rolls in Cochin Kerala ?

  122. admin says:

    Hi Siddharth! Will find out about this…

  123. Devyani says:

    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

  124. Pulkit says:


    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

  125. admin says:

    Hi Pulkit. You can find it on Flipkart, Amazon,, etc. Search for “35mm Film Roll” or “photo film”.

  126. admin says:

    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.

  127. Siddharth says:

    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?

  128. admin says:

    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.

  129. Joseph Marvin Oliver says:

    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!

    I also have to replace its battery but i thought before buying that, if i could have it checked.

  140. admin says:

    Hi! Not sure if it can be checked in Lucknow. Can you send it to Mumbai?

    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.

    Hello admin,
    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!
    Please help!

  150. admin says:

  155. Sakshi B says:

    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!

  156. admin says:

  165. aarnav says:

    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

  188. KISHOR says:

    Hi, pl. suggest how to convert digital photos in to film slide (colour)…if possible pl. suggest contact

  189. admin says:

    Hi Kishore. The cheapest way is to play the digital stills on a high resolution compter screen and photograph them using a good slide film.
    Or you could go for what is called ‘Reverse Telecine’ which will be expensive and probably won’t be worth it for stills. It is a process used primarily for motion picture work.

  190. KISHOR says:

    Thank you Admin,
    Pl suggest for Slide film roll & E-6 processing kit suppliers…

  191. Rajshekhar says:
