Leica Camera x Hillvale Photo

We are proud to announce a new partnership with Hillvale Photo, an independent photo lab created by photographers, for photographers, located in Melbourne, Australia. They specialise in film developing and scanning across all formats, including 35mm, 120, 110, slides, APS and many others in C-41, BW and E-6 types.

Our three Leica Stores are now Hillvale Dropbox locations. The Dropboxes will be collected each Tuesday at 10am, but we recommend to drop them off the day before!

Posting Rolls

Fill out a job form

Please download our 2024 job form and send it in completed with your rolls. This step is crucial for them to be able to identify your order, so please make sure we can read your handwriting and that you've included all relevant details.

If you don't have access to printer they also accept digitally completed forms via email at develop@hillvale.com.au — but please make sure your package is clearly named so they can match it up with your job form on arrival.

Post your order

Hillvale strongly recommend using prepaid satchels, padded envelopes, or boxes, as well as paying for tracking for more security during transit. Include your job form and rolls. Post to the lab address above and sit tight.

Wait for an email 

Hillvale will send email once we receive your order at our lab. They've found that post usually arrives each day around noon. From here it takes around 5-7 business days for us to develop and scan your order, depending on what service you've selected. E6 and ECN-2 film is outsourced, these order can take up to 15 business days to be returned.

Payment

Once your order is complete, you'll receive a Square invoice via email. They separate invoices according to chemical process to speed up our workflow — so you'll receive your colour invoice separately to your B&W invoice, for example. An automatic download link to your scans will be sent through following payment.

Receive your negatives 

Hillvale offer return negative postage Australia-wide for $11. They're able to stockpile a few months' worth of orders and post them out in bulk when you've built up a collection. Just select "Post All Orders" when you're ready and we'll include this charge on your invoice. 

Please note Hillvale only hold negatives at our lab for three months before moving them to our deep storage facility
