Film Camera 101, or Nuad Cameras as it is usually known, is one of the most well-known online film camera shops that have been around since before the resurgence of film photography in Bangkok. Oui, the owner, had been taking his camera kiosk to all vintage fairs and markets around town before he finally found a permanent home at Warehouse 30.
New film labs keep popping up around town I can’t even keep up at this point. So I thought I should try to compile a list and compare their services and prices, just for my own reference and just in case you’re in Bangkok and looking to get your films developed.
มีร้านล้างฟิล์ม ล้างรูป เกิดใหม่ขึ้นมาเยอะมาก ตอนนี้ตามไม่ทันแล้ว เลยคิดว่าได้เวลารวบรวมราคาและบริการล้างฟิล์มในกรุงเทพฯ เอาไว้ เผื่อใครที่กำลังสนใจถ่ายรูปฟิล์มแล้วยังไม่รู้ว่าจะไปล้างที่ไหนกัน
I recently stumbled upon an app called PrintMeOut. It's a phone app that lets you create a photobook using images from your phone. I didn't think too much about it and saw that it would only cost me 349 baht (with free shipping), so I thought I should test it out.
AirLab is an analog photographer's haven. It's a film lab, a darkroom, a film camera store, a photo studio, and a photography workshop and gallery--all in one compound amidst a lush green space, which is rare in a concrete city like Bangkok.
I have been a fan of Husband and Wife and I have been buying their stuff online for a while. The only reason why it took me this long to finally visit their physical store is the location.
"Nostalgia" is inevitably the Songkran theme for Thailand this year. Thanks to a popular soap opera on TV, "Bupphesanniwat" has sparked an interest in Thai traditional costumes among the population, just in time to usher in the Thai New Year Week.
I used to work in Silom so I know what it’s like. Crowded, dingy and smelly, I rarely come here voluntarily. But there’s one reason I would set foot here for: Photo Gallery.
Film lab and community AIRLAB hosted its annual Analog Fair, and event that brings speakers, vendors and shoppers of all things analog photography. I went last year and I was really impressed and decided to become a part of it this year.
I received this "wooden" Lomo Fisheye 2 camera from my Emulsive Secret Santa. The design is much better than the first model but it's still a toy definitely. I loaded it up with my own hand-loaded film and I had been carrying it around in my bag for forever since it's so light I forgot I had it in my backpack (and also forgot to use it).
LERT's has become my new favorite film lab as of late. It's conveniently located (just across from MBK), run by a friendly musician-slash-photographer, and the gallery in itself is an interesting space to explore, hang out, and photograph.
