FilmLab, for Analog Film

Develop and Fix, Inc.
FilmLab makes it easy to view and digitize film negatives. All you need is your iPhone or iPad, and a light table or other back light. Whether you're an active film photographer who wants to share your latest roll of film on social media, or a family archivist with a box of old negatives to look through, we hope FilmLab will make your workflow easier and more fun.

FilmLab's camera makes it easy to inspect negatives, with a live preview showing what they'll look like as positives. If you want to save or share an image, tap the capture button. FilmLab uses custom image processing to seamless combine multiple photos from your device's camera for maximum detail.

After capture, you can keep an entire proof sheet, or crop down to a single frame. FilmLab includes modes for color negative, black and white negative, and color positive. It also provides tools for rotating and flipping the image, and adjusting exposure and color balance. FilmLab's negative-to-positive conversion is much more than a simple inversion. It uses custom algorithms to emulate the chemical processes used in darkrooms, and produce accurate colors and tones.

Once you're happy with your proof sheet or image, you can save it to you Camera Roll, or share it using AirDrop, Messages, or social media apps.

Each film image is unique and special. That piece of film was in a specific place at a specific moment in time, and it captured the light as a permanent image using nothing but science and chemistry. Viewing these images always fills us with wonder and puts smiles on our faces. We hope FilmLab gives you the same kind of experience. Thanks for taking the time to check it out!

What's new in version 1.3.2
FilmLab 1.3.2 has a few small improvements and bug fixes.

Bugs fixed:

- Fixed a bug where the option to change sync speed between 1/50 and 1/60 was hidden on some phones.
- Fixed a bug in color handling on devices that don't support raw capture

New features:

- The sync speed setting is now saved - FilmLab will remember the option you chose last time.
- The export button is now disabled while an image is processing. This prevents saving a partially-processed image, which may have low quality.


- CPU use and battery use have been reduced
- Auto color balance accuracy is slightly better
