Who is Carmencita?

Carmencita Film Lab is a company founded in 2012 in Valencia, Spain. We are committed to get the best quality out of every frame when it comes to develop & scan any photographer’s work.

Founded by photographers for photographers, we created the lab we always demanded as film shooters ourselves and responsive to our clients demands. We believe there is no other way to keep film alive rather than deliver excellent work at every scan.
