New Video - Processing Film at Spectra
Processing Cut Off:  Film for processing must be delivered at our counter before 12PM to make it into
a planed run on the same day. Deliveries after the deadline will be held back for the next developing cycle.
NEW AT SPECTRA!  Ultrasonic Film Cleaning:  After any lab assembles film and adds leader,
a proper cleaning should always applied to remove handling dirt.  At Spectra, we now use the
Lipsner-Smith CF7200 ultrasonic cleaning system with all telecine prep services to ensure professional
results.  The 7200 provides full immersion cleaning in a warm bath of solvent while ultrasonic agitation
and gentle buffing is applied.  This is known in the industry as the safest and most effective way to
clean any motion picture film (acetate, nitrate or polyester)!

We are also the
ONLY lab in the US to offer professional ultrasonic cleaning services using our
modified CF7200 for the lower formats (super 8 and regular 8).  Send your film to Spectra and see why
we are considered to be among the best in the business!
Old Film and Foma Policy:  We do not provide refunds or guarantee results on Foma or old films
that may have inconsistent results due to age, manufacturing quality or chemical compatibility.  This
policy includes Foma, all color VNF, 64T, 100D and 160 Ektachrome, all Kodachrome, old PlusX/TriX,
old ECN-2 color negative. We can only provide you with our best effort to obtain good results!
Spectra Film Processing Policy  
16 and 35 Processing Minimums:  Like most labs, we must charge minimums on some of our
processing services to cover our minimum labor, chemical and utility costs.  We charge an overall
processing minimum of 100' for 16mm color negative, black and white reversal and E-6 ektachrome.  
16mm and 35mm black and white negative has a 400' minimum.  35mm color negative has a 400' minimum.

We also charge a per container 100' minimum on 16mm and 35mm films that must be stapled into a run.  
For example, if one can of 16mm containing 40' and another can containing 60' are submitted together we
would charge developing for 200' (100' per can).  Considering this, we suggest you try not to cut or
separate film in sections that are under 100'.
Processing and Payment Policy:  Any films you submit to us for processing must be paid in
advance and will not be refundable (whether the end result has a usable image or not).  We still preform
the service and use up chemistry to determine  what is on your film.  So, it is important that the potential
images will be worth it to you!  
See Important Processing Policy Information Below:  Please review our information at the
bottom of this page before submitting film to us.  We are here to serve you!  Should you have any
questions, no matter how minor, do not hesitate call!
Processing Turn Around:  Film developed on a given day will usually be ready for pick-up the
following day (after 12PM).  If counter pick-up is required, we will provide a courtesy phone call when film
is ready.  If we are shipping film, tracking information will be emailed from the selected shipper to indicate
your film is on the way.  Please check voice mail and email to determine if film has been developed!

We do not run all film types daily!  We typically run just one film type per day based on when we have
enough to run.  Color negative is usually run twice weekly, black and white reversal is usually run twice
weekly and E-6 is usually run once weekly.  To guarantee a specific film type is run on a specific date we
do provide rush service for 150.00 (developing only, rush scanning not included).
Processing Limitation of Liability:  We respectfully point out that our lab prices are never
proportionate to the value of the film submitted to us.  Any customer media, including but not limited to
film or hard drives, shall be received, developed, scanned or stored by Spectra only at the customers
own risk.  Spectra does not accept responsibility for any loss or damage to client media from any cause
whatsoever including negligence.  Media delivered to Spectra are accepted upon the express condition
that same are insured by the owner thereof for the full amount of all risk, possible damage and loss, and
said owner waives all rights of subrogation.  Except for the replacement value of raw film stock, other
media submitted, or developing cost acceptance of all said media is without other warranty or liability.  
We reserve the right to hold a lien thereon for general balance due to Spectra by customer whether in
respect to processing, transferring, storage or otherwise.  
Film Storage:  Spectra will not be liable for orders, equipment, media (including but not limited to film,
hard drives, or tape) or other materials unclaimed after 30 days.  We have the right to dispose of or
charge storage for said items at our own discretion after the 30 day expiration.
Mislabeled, Torn or Spliced Film for Development:  Any client who submits undeveloped film
to us that is improperly labeled as another film process type, badly damaged (tears, creases or
perforation damage) or has splices will be held responsible for all damage that may result from
contaminated chemistry or film breaks. This charge will accrue any resulting damage cost including
but not limited to replacing film/processing for other clients, labor costs, replacement of  contaminated
chemistry, filter replacement, tank cleaning and rethreading.  These costs may run in the thousands.  
With this in mind, Spectra asks that all film submitted for developing is properly labeled and in good
physical condition with no splices or tears!
