Thanks to technology, we can take photos and videos using our phones and edit them the way we want. We can make them look *vintage* using apps, or add timestamp effects for that retro vibe. But there's something unique about using a classic, point-and-shoot film camera. The fact that you don't know how the photos will turn out gives you that mysterious, exciting feeling. And honestly, what comes next is the best part: seeing your photos come to life.
If you just got your first film camera and you're wondering where you can get your rolls processed and scanned, keep reading for some options.

At Sunny16 Lab, you can get your pics back in one to 15 days max! They offer scanning and processing services for both disposable and film cameras (35MM, 120, 110, and APS film). Once the film is scanned, you can choose to have the digital copies emailed, printed out, or both! If you prefer processing only, that's fine too!
