About 126 Film and How to Identify
126 is the number given to a cartridge-based film format used in still photography. It was introduced by Kodak in 1963, and is associated mainly with low-end point-and-shoot cameras, particularly Kodak's own Instamatic series of cameras.
Although 126 was once very popular, as of 2008 it is no longer manufactured, and we are one of the few photofinishers will still process it.

About our Service.
We will process film as carefully as possible because we know that these posibly has great sentimental valve. Therefore we use our expertise to process in a manner that is most likey to give good results. Very often we have to process them as a B&W film even if it was colour film for that is the most likely to give any viable image. All Kodachrome Film is processed as a B&W negative.
After Processing they are scanned and images are given a quick digital fix-up which means they are adjusted for brightness and contrast. This is an automated process but it makes huge improvements on faded negatives then on Photoshop and they are manually worked by a experienced technician . The manipulations include
- Brightness and contrast adjustment by eye
- Grain Reduction
- Edge fog reduction
- The removal of major blemishes where practical
Even with these extensive manipulations, often the quick digital fix-up initially performed on the film, creates an image that can be little improved.Some images are greatly improved, most are somewhat improved and others little improved with the manual fix-up. Please note this is not a major restoration work.
After this we have the images sent to our printer .
