Hands On Film Singapore

With how advanced technology has progressed over the years, now we can easily snap photos or videos in full HD. Sometimes, the footage is even clear enough to zoom into all of the pores on our faces. 

Despite this, many still opt to capture their precious moments via film cameras instead. These often come with a unique nostalgic aesthetic that’s simply fun to look at. For those who are interested in owning a film camera or simply want to develop films, Hands On Film is a vintage film store in Singapore with services from $7.

The film store

Upon entering Hands On Film, customers will be immediately greeted by a flashing neon sign of the store name. A closer look at this sign will reveal a stack of endless film cameras in the background placed above each other. 

Other aesthetically-pleasing features of the store include old-school posters and a variety of vintage film cameras lined side by side. 


It’s no secret that developing finished film rolls can be pretty pricey. But at Hands On Film, services start from just $7, with different add-ons available at affordable prices. 


Customers can also purchase the store’s exclusive film rolls categorised by different filters. One example is the Dawn 200, which comes with a bright tone that’s perfect for capturing memories on sunny days.

Meanwhile, Midnight 1600 is described as “a film that isn’t afraid of the dark”, with cooler tones that capture the beauty of the quiet night glow. 

There are eight different types of film starting from $15, and interested customers can also purchase them via Hands On Film’s Shopee page.
