35mm Slide and Negative Scanning
Using the best quality Nikon scanners we hand scan 35mm, 126 and 110 size slides and 35mm strip and roll negatives to high resolution digital files.
Not all scanning services use top line scanners and the difference can be startling, we only use Nikon scanners as quite simply they are the best!
Transfer : Highest quality transfers are guaranteed using our Coolscan 4000 ED scanners, we use multipass to achieve full dynamic range too.
Cleaning : We hand clean the films prior to transfer, this is a light non destructive cleaning of each frame before scanning to remove dust with a soft blower brush, the software utilitses digital infra red to mask out remaining dust and blemishes giving improved images. Damaged film can be cleaned with special film cleaners this can be carried out to help restore images that have require restortion prior to scanning.
Photoshop: All scans are then processed individually in Photoshop for correct orientation, colour and contrast, additional restoration also can be undertaken on badly damaged films to remove large blemishes in imperfections. We are experts in digital restoration so rest assured if you have an image that you would love to have restored then please call us to discuss.
