Geared toward professional clients, Atkins Lab is definitely one of the best places to develop film in Adelaide. We’ll be upfront – this certainly isn’t the cheapest film developing you can find – but most customers of this lab are much more concerned with quality than price.
Every type of film is accepted by Atkins. You can develop 35mm, 120, and large format film – C-41 colour, black and white, and E-6.
Both colour and slide film are processed dip and dunk and B&W is processed by hand. You can usually expect a 5 day turnaround for developing and scans.
You’ll have your choice of two different scanners and all scans are colour corrected. Atkins even encourages new customers to provide reference images to help them nail your preferred “look” on all future orders.
It’s worth noting that they offer a discount when developing 10+ rolls and you can also apply to become a “pro” client, which unlocks different pricing and other benefits.
Hutt Street Photos
Location: 186 Hutt St, Adelaide SA 5000, Australia
Hutt Street Photos is a Kodak Express location that offers fast film developing in Adelaide. Aside from film services, you can expect to find standard photo lab offerings like printing, scanning, and other photo finishing.
You can visit Hutt Street if you’re looking to develop disposable cameras, 35mm, or 120 film. Black and white, colour, and slide film are all accepted.
If you shoot less common formats, APS, 110, and 126 formats can also be developed.
Black and White Photographics
Location: 31 George St, Stepney SA 5069, Australia
Don’t be fooled by the name – you can develop any type of film at Black and White Photographics.
35mm and 120 film are both accepted, whether it is black and white (obviously), colour, or E-6. You’ll have your choice of two sizes of scans with developing.
Especially for slide film, onsite processing is becoming harder to find. Fortunately, Black and White Photographics handles all film developing in house – a handful of other labs even send their customers’ film here.
Adelaide Photo Factory
Adelaide Photo Factory is a photoshop and lab completely dedicated to analogue photography. You love to see it.
You’ll be able to develop medium format and 35mm film whether it is C-41 colour or black and white. Two sizes of scans are available.
Aside from the lab services, Photo Factory stocks instant cameras, darkroom equipment, and plenty of fresh film.
Arkaba Photos is another independent photo lab that offers film developing in Adelaide. As a full-service digital lab, they can help you with anything printing or photo related.
If you need to develop disposable cameras, 35mm, or 120 film, you can bring them to Arkaba. They accept C-41 colour, black and white, and slide film.
Ted’s Cameras is a large, full-service photoshop chain that operates 17 stores across Australia. With over 50 years in business, they are definitely one of the biggest photo chains in the country.
While their film offerings are limited, it’s nice that they still develop 35mm colour film.
You can find two locations in the Adelaide area, and plenty more if you travel to other parts of Australia.
Twin City: 120 Grenfell St, Adelaide SA 5000, Australia
Another, even larger photo chain, Camera House has two locations that develop film in Adelaide. Their photo labs are just a small part of the operation – Camera House is a full-service photo shop with all sorts of gear and accessories.
The Twin City location can develop 35mm and 120 film, both C-41 colour and black and white. While most stores will have similar offerings, we’ve also seen some locations that are only able to develop colour film.
It’s a good idea to check with your nearest branch to see what they’re able to develop. With over 50 stores in total, this information can change quite frequently.
