The CPB Foundation is excited to add a unique film to its arsenal of black and white ReSpool films- Original Wolfen or ORWO UN54. Intended for use in motion pictures, the UN54 is a panchromatic black-and-white film with an ISO rating of 100, perfect for producing a rich tonal scale with impressive contrast, fine grain and high sharpness. 

This is a fresh stock of film sourced directly from the manufacturer in Europe/UK and hand-carried to India. The Darkroom team has tested these stocks extensively, including technical ISO rating tests, and have confirmed that they are in great condition. 

The CPB Darkroom will be offering a mail-order service for film development, traditional contact printing and hi-resolution scanning. More information and rates for these services can be found here.

Prepaid Processing & Scanning

The CPB Community Darkroom now offers a full range of commercial development and scanning services on a drop-off or mail-order basis. All films are processed in a temperature-regulated darkroom to the highest standards. Negatives are scanned with an Espon V800 flatbed scanner.

We are excited to launch an exciting discounted price for prepaid film development and scanning. You can shoot and return your rolls to the CPB Darkroom by courier or drop them off anytime within 90 days of your order. The prepaid package includes the cost of development, scanning at medium-resolution JPEGs as well as return shipping of the negatives to you after scanning. The cost does not include shipping of rolls back to the CPB Darkroom for development.

 Features of CPB ReSpool

  1. Professionally hand-spooled in a dust-controlled environment.
  2. All film rolls are guaranteed to have 36 frames.
  3. Cartridges are not DX-coded and hence not suited to Point and Shoot cameras that do not allow the ISO to be set manually.
  4. All film leaders have been cut with an industry-standard leader cutter for uniformity.

What is Respool?

Respooling film is the act of purchasing film in bulk quantities by the 100's of feet and spooling them by hand into used metal cartridges. The film is loaded in a light-controlled environment using specialised equipment and produces results which are identical to commercially packaged films (unless mentioned as untested expired stocks).
