A big drawcard for shooting film is the tangible, hands-on approach to making photographs that it provides. This doesn't stop with the shooting! Processing film requires extraordinary care and detail and at Focus Pocus we've acquired some of the most accurate and well regarded machines to produce those perfect scans every time.
We use a fully refurbished, immaculate quality Noritsu QSF-T15 processor for all your 35mm colour film. This is an absolute powerhouse that can develop a roll of film and dry it in less than ten minutes.
We use a state of the art Noritsu S-600 film scanner to scan all B&W, colour and slide 35mm film.
This is calibrated daily and fine-tuned regularly to ensure the sharpest scans possible.
The drop box.
We have a drop box available 24/7 attached to our main entrance on the arched gate on Quarry Street. The drop box is checked multiple times a day and is perfect for swinging by and throwing your film in after hours or for a non-contact exchange. To use the drop box, just place an order through the website, attach a note to your film that includes your order number and name and come by and pop it in the box! We'll take care of the rest.
Negatives are cut and sleeved in our vintage Crown sleever from the 1970's. This slices your film in strips of four and archives them in durable, long-lasting plastic sleeving. You can choose whether you want your negatives stored, discarded or sent back to you through the post when you place and order.
