2. Develop

Now that you’ve shot your first rolls of film it’s time to develop them. As the Lomography Spinner 360° uses 35mm film it won’t be a problem to develop your films even if you’re in Alaska or Bora Bora. However, no matter how friendly and well-disposed your lab is, you need to inform the guys there about the extraordinary format you’re handing them over. They have probably never developed an image that long and could do something wrong if they don’t know about it. Tell your lab about the Lomography Spinner 360° and inform them that the pictures you took are about 4 times as long as a conventional landscape picture. Usually a Lomography Spinner 360° picture is about 23cm (9.1 inches) long on the actual film. The best option is to ask your lab to develop your film and then hand it back to you without cutting it. This is economical and gives you many possibilities in the aftermath. With the developed and uncut film in your hands you can choose to either ask the lab to scan your negatives for you, or scan them yourself using a flatbed scanner with a backlight unit.
