About Gauge Film
Gauge Film is a resource dedicated to supporting 8mm and 16mm film in the United Kingdom and throughout the European Union. We are an offical Kodak and Wittner reseller! We specialize in 8mm and 16mm film, offering both reversal and negative film stock, processing and scanning services. We have been trading since the beginning of 2011 and our processing and scanning services have become very versatile in that short time. We pride ourselves on being the cheapest online lab in the world with very high standards. Our goal is to keep film alive in the 21st century by appealing to all types of people interested in using film, from the home movie-maker to the contemporary artist or professional cinematographer. Gauge Film aims to make film easy to access, easy to understand and affordable. By using this site you are supporting 8mm and 16mm film and enabling us to expand our services.
Next Developing Deadline: 22/08/2017
We set a developing deadline every four weeks on a Tuesday. Make sure your film arrives before the developing deadline below reaches zero. If you miss the deadline your film will fall in the following month batch. It takes two week from the deadline date to develop all film. All developed film (without scanning) is posted out straight away. Developed film with scanning is carried over into the scanning fortnight. Please don't chase your film via email if it falls within our schedule. We're only a small team so the more time we have to spend emailing the less time we have to work.
Next Scanning Deadline: 05/09/2017
We set a scanning deadline every four weeks on a Tuesday. Make sure your film arrives before the scanning deadline below reaches zero. If you miss the deadline your film will fall in the following months batch. It takes two weeks from the deadline date to scan all films. Please don't chase your film via email if it falls within our schedule. We're only a small team so the more time spent at our computers emailing the less time we have to work. We intend to reduce our 4 week developing and scanning period down to 3 weeks soon.
