Film Processing (no longer provided):



Aerial Photo Lab, Inc. no longer processes aerial film in house

but we can suggest that you speak with Jack Berry & Associates in Peachtree City, GA

as they have the color aerial film processor that we used for many years!


The following information was left on our site for reference information!



We have put together a comparison page for IR Film processing that will be of interest to the professional market as well.  If you wish to review this information see here.


Currently over 98% of our film processing is completed and shipped out to clients the same day it is received.  Our normal turnaround time for processing is 24 hours. 


Agfa and Kodak are two major manufacturers of aerial film and aerial photo lab supplies.   Aerial Photo Lab, Inc. now utilizes primarily Agfa processing supplies due to a notable trend of preference for various Agfa films by our clientele.  Agfa supplies meet the demand for our Transparency film processing (ASP44 – E6) in particular.   Agfa supplies products to our lab which Kodak has eliminated from the Kodak product line.  As a result, with Agfa, Aerial Photo Lab, Inc. continues to provide the same superior imagery and service that our clients have always enjoyed!

For your Color Negative Aerial investment, we are utilizing a Kodak Versamat with a Kodak approved combination of C-41 and Aerial Chemistry to obtain the best archival quality possible.  We also have the ability to add as many as 5 additional C-41 processors to our production line.  Aerial Photo Lab processes the following Color Negative films and more:


Agfa Aviphot Color X100 - also stocked in 5" & 70mm perf

Kodak SO-734 False Color Infrared Negative

For your higher film speed Color POSITIVE investment we utilize ASP-44 (E6) processors in our lab.  We have the ability to add as many as 5 processors with the ability to process as many as 6 rolls at the same time if the production need arises.  Due to much slower processing speeds the normal same day turn around on the aerial films will not always be available for these films.  We are Agfa Certified for processing of the Chrome films.  The ASP-44 and E-6 films include:


ASP-44 and E-6 Chrome Films

Agfa Aviphot Chrome 200

Kodak SO-359

All other E-6 Films up to 12" including movie and professional films



With recent developments at Kodak we will no longer offer the AR5 process in our lab unless it is for a large quantity under a contract.  We own a Kodak  Versamat that we can have on line fairly quickly for the AR5 process.  Should this need ever be decided to be utilized in the future we have one processor capable of approximately 5.5 FPM that can be utilized.  Positive films that are processed using AR5 chemicals are:


AR-5 Process

Kodak 1443 False Color Infrared Positive

Kodak 2427 Natural Color Transparency or see SO-359 & AgfaChrome films

Kodak 2448 Natural Color Transparency see 2427 or see SO-359 & AgfaChrome films

Kodak SO-734 False Color Infrared Positive see 1443


We are continually working with film manufacturers on film development and improvement. We are also working very closely with Agfa in trying to bring some of the film formats that are being (and have been) dropped by Kodak over the last several years. If you are looking for specific films please let us know and we will help you.



We have received several rolls of film to be processed (or to be printed) that arrived without being taped on the outside wrap.  The lack of tape on the outside wrap of film allows the film to become loose and move around inside the can.  This movement against the side of the can and the spool can cause damage.  There are times a spool is received bent inside the can and if the film is loose there can be damage and if the spool is bent in shipping the damage can be severe.  We have received film that has gotten torn and kinked in shipping with no damage to the box or can.
