Mail-in Film Service

We at Downtown Camera see the value of shooting in film which is why we now offer a mail-in film service. This allows us to extend our services past the walls of our Toronto based store allowing those across Canada access to film processing. Send us your well-packaged colour, black and white, and slide film along with the filled out order form and you’ll have your film in no time. mail-in-film-icons

We will ship back your negatives

Most other mail-in film development services will not send back your negatives. Please select a shipping method and we will arrange to send you back your film negatives.

We Charge as “Econo”

We consider mail-in film as an “econo” service and therefore qualifies for our most economical pricing option with processing times of 4-7 business days for colour film and 7 business days For Black and White film. If you send in 10 rolls or more than 10 rolls of film, we will automatically give you 20% off your order.

We Offer Email Transfer!

For scans you have the option of receiving a link. This way you can download your images right away!

Place Your Film + Order Form in a Zip-Close Bag

Liquids can be very harmful to unprocessed film, once we determine there is water damage to the roll, we are unable to develop the film at our location.  A plastic zip-close bag gives added protection.

Use a Box + Cushioning or Bubble envelope

  • A box and plenty of cushioning or a bubble envelope with a zip-close bag will be perfectly fine to keep your film safe from travels.
  • Please try not to put film in just an envelope, we have seen a lot of the envelopes come into the store damaged (ripped and tore opened)

Get a Tracking Number

Your film is precious cargo! We highly recommend you send it to us via a trackable method to ensure it arrives safely.

How Do I Get My Negatives Back?

Your negatives will be carefully cut and sleeve in strip of 4 frames for 35mm film ( if you requested). We don’t cut 120 film but we sleeve them too and wrap it around a core to prevent it from getting squished!

We offer 2 shipping methods:

  • Standard shipping ( no tracking number) – $5: for cut negatives of 35mm film (maximum 5 rolls) (and if they already got scanned via Email Transfer, otherwise it will fall under expedited shipping). **It is really important to us that if anything happens to your negatives while getting shipped standard shipping, you will always have a copy of your images. Please consider getting scans or Expedited shipping.  
  • Expedited shipping ( with tracking number) – $15: for uncut 35mm film, 120, 110, 126, 127, APS film and prints/other. And of course, if you requested it. (Any type of order without scans Emailed Transferred to them will automatically be charged expedited)
