film & processing



film


We offer a selection of our favourite films.  

Kodak Portra 160 and 400, Fuji PRO400H, ilford HP5+. That’s it, for now.

You can read up on these films on the right, to see why we like them so much and what we recommend them for. You can add any number to your order, don’t forget to add film to your rental kit!


processing


Our processing is done at Laboriver, our favorite lab in Brussels. You can choose to drop your equipment and shot films there, so you don’t have to arrange for processing yourself. Let us know what you need, and we will arrange the processing for you.

scanning


Laboriver also provides a proofing or scanning service. Apart from processing the film, you can have your film scanned (baseline) for digital purposes. Plane offers an on demand high quality scanning service as well.

135 films


Fuji PRO400H     135                  €9,90 /roll

Professional grade film from Fuji.
Boasts sharp detail and crisp colors, colder and more greenish tone compared to Kodak’s portra films. Good allround film, renders skin cooler then Portra, good exposure range, although we’ve found it slightly less forgiving then Portra when it comes to over or under exposing.

Likes flash photography and even tolerates uncorrected tungsten light as well. Portra will just turn out too yellow. Essentially our go-to film for artificial light in the studio.

Excellent film to scan. 

Portra 400 or 160   135         €10,40 or €9,50 /roll

Professional grade film from Portra, designed for portraits or anything else you can point your camera at.

Renders sharp detail and crisp colors, warmer and more suitable for skintones than its Fuji counterpart. We consider Portra 400 the gold standard of allround color reversal films, as it is also extremely forgiving to overexposure. Don’t tell anyone, but we overexposed by four stops once and managed to get a good scan out of it. 
Portra 160 is less forgiving - we reckon 2 stops over, at best. Forget about underexposing. Best used in summer when you have too much light and want to shoot wide-open.

Portra does less well in uncorrected tungsten light. Too yellow. Not cool.

Portra 400 is an excellent film to scan. 160 too, but can be more fussy in terms of color rendition.


Ilford HP5+        135                                    €7,90/roll 

We recommend Ilford HP5+ because we feel it can do anything and look neutral, high-contrast, low grain or high grain, depending on how you develop or like it.

From the box, it has low grain, medium contrast and with the high 400 ASA box speed you know you can put it through a lot of different situations. Overexposed it by 3 stops? It’s fine. Underexposed it by 2 stops? No sweat.

Very pushable (we’ve done it up to 3200) with more than acceptable results. 

Does nicely in both daylight and artificial light.

Start shooting this film, try every other film available, end up using HP5+ again. Facts.
