      Yes, it’s robin photo. But after knowing more about developing, I can say they didn’t do a good job at the time. Of all that are listed, I have only visited Kedai Gambar Fotomas and they have stopped doing film developing.

      I think the nearest film shop in JB is the one linked in this post, the JB Photo Heng 🙂 The uncles there know their stuff well!

    Hi , I just went to Robin Photo a week ago, Rm 15 for developing and scanning. Rm 30 for scanning to CD. Is it normally that expensive ? bcause i just got into film recently so I’m not familiar with all the pricing. I should try out other shops that you guys listed next time for sure. Thanks a lot ! 🙂

    • filmbasedtraveler

      Hello! That’s strange. The last time I develop + scan to CD was only RM20. Yeah maybe you should try Foto Heng or Utama Photo Enterprise. Both are near to each other 🙂

      • Diyanah

        Hey hey, is Utama Photo Enterprise good at processing? I went to Robin Photo and the lady wasn’t that friendly and I don’t even know if she’s good at developing 😭

        • filmbasedtraveler

          From a feedback from one reader, he said the scan from Utama turns out quite bad. I have not personally tried Utama so that’s all I can tell you 🙁

        Okie, thanks… will check out myself then… just to ensure you said near city sq is Foto Johore Heng 柔佛彩色摄影社? Their contact +60 11 3778 6820?

    Dear film enthusiasts:

    I started film photography in 1981 and went dormant after 2000. I am looking for a Bay 1 mount Yellow – 2 filter for my Yashica Mat 124 G TLR film camera. I am trying in Singapore and can my Malaysia friends have any tips for trying in JB?

    Hi, I just called Foto Johore Heng 柔佛彩色摄影社, unfortunately they are not developing film anymore. According to the boss, the cost of developing film (the chemicals) is too high for them due to low request in JB. It’s such a pity to see the craftmanship vanishing in JB 🙁 (Unlike other photo studio, they know what they are doing exactly with professional manner)

    On a side note, I actually suggested to buy the chemical for them by myself, the boss agreed too.

    Perhaps we should start creating a group and collect all films, send to them once or twice monthly. With regular quantity, they are able to survive 🙂
