    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

  40. archit says:

    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.
