    So helpful, thank you for the great information 👌 FYI I was looking in Lomography yesterday, the prices seemed similar to SNAPPP also with the option for posting the film, but the time frame for developing was up to 10days

    For the shop near shilin night market do you know what’s the pricing for the developing + scanning? And for the rest of the shops how do they give you the scanned photos? Is it through email or via a CD/Thumbdrive? Thank you! Really loved this article and am looking forward to visiting these shops!

      I can’t remember the exact pricing, sorry! But the price won’t be too far off from other shops. They give the photos via CD. 🙂

    Hi! Love your blogpost! I’ll be going to Taiwan in June and this got me so excited to shoot film there. Question though: do you know where could I find cheap films in Taiwan and how much they cost? Thank you!

      I guess all the film shops that I listed in this blogpost sell films at reasonable price except SNAPPP and Lomography store 🙂

    This is a really comprehensive list, thanks so much! How big are the files from Rainbow in the Sky, and do they email files to you or give a CD?

    Also, do you take 3 white photos first to ‘trick’ the machine into calibrating colours properly?

    Thanks so much for the post! I’m living in Taipei and have been having some trouble finding cheap spots. My local friends recommended me spots for $150, but they were closed and I ended up finding what seemed like a popular spot that does it for $200 per role with no discount if you have more roles (I had about 5 to develop). And they took 5 days to do it. Good thing I didn’t get it developed there! Good to know there are much cheaper spots around. I will go try $60 one 🙂

    Hi, thank you so much for this. I’ve found that number 2. 林屋照相器材有限公司 has closed. Instead down the street at No. 56, Bo’ai Road, Zhongzheng District, Taipei City, Taiwan 100 offers a similar service at 100ntd for colour (2 hours) , 180ntd for black and white (1 week) and 180ntd for ECN-2 (one week) all through a Dropbox service.

    I hope that helps keep this awesome page relevant.
