Cutting 8×11 and 16mm film is done in a clean, dust-free environment, so your Minox camera and negatives will be safe from dust particles. After your cassette has been unloaded (post-processing), it is thoroughly rinsed with ionized water. and dried in a dust-free special container.

4. Film processing – the processing will be done based on your indication of film type and ASA. Therefore, please make sure you keep notes on the type of film and its sensitivity you shoot, because I’ll process base solely on your indications. I will not be responsible for any bad results or for ruining your film, if you fail to provide the correct information.

Note: please do not send me cameras with jammed cassettes inside. I have been sent a couple and I had to return these back with a special courier. Not fun and not cheap. If your cassette is jammed inside the camera, let me know so we can work out a solution. Do not attempt to forcibly remove the cassette from the spool chamber, it may damage your camera and surely it will damage your cassette. This in turn can and will ruin your film inside the cassette.
