Firstcall Photographic, the mail-order photographic specialist, have launched a new and unique service that gives photographers the ability to print their images taken using a digital camera, in a traditional way in their own darkrooms.
This revolutionary approach to fulfilling the needs of photographers arose after much market research involving the frustration of photographers who still shoot using film but increasingly use digital cameras too. By using this service a common denominator is established making it possible to carry on printing in a darkroom regardless of original.
Firstcall have invested in a £15,000 PCR8 CCG Film Recorder that writes JPEG or TIFF files to 35mm film using a precision (3 pass) laser which then creates negatives equal to the original resolution of the film.
The service involves sending a CD to Firstcall, containing up to 36 images, and an unprocessed black and white Ilford film is returned for developing and printing at the customer’s home. The complete service, including postage, costs £15 and the CD with burnt film is returned by next day post.
