Terms and conditions

This S8RL does not have a full automatic webshop because this is a very small company. Secondly the S8RL likes personal contact and likes to know who we are dealing with. If you want your films to get developed, if you want to order filmstock or maybe both, please send an email or call S8RL.

  • Current super8 colour and black/white reversal films are developed every week, excluding on public holidays [this in not a guaranty].
  • Add 1 to 2 weeks extra for 16mm reversal films.
  • The processing of outdated films (which expiration date has passed, for example Agfa MovieChrome, Boots, FujiChrome, Revue or Orwo) is done on a volume basis, and can take up to 2 or 3 months [this is not a guaranty].
