We can scan from any 35 mm film (positive or negative) using an Epson V850-Pro scanner with up to a resolution of 4,000 dpi true optical resolution and 6400dpi when scanning using film holders.
Scan from any source
Scan a range of film formats in sharp focus thanks to the improved quality film holders with their adjustable height control and rigid design. The V850 Pro also supports film formats up to 8x10 inch when placed directly on the scanner glass.
Epson's ReadyScan LED light source has a warm up time of less than one second, so scanning can start almost instantly. Two sets of film holders means you can prepare a second set of orginals for scanning while the first is still scanning.
Digital ICE Technologies automatically removes imperfections such as dust, hair, scratches and fingerprints from both film1 and photos to restore images to their former glory with the minimum of effort.
The right tone
Take advantage of excellent tone reproduction with 4.0 DMax optical density.The V850 Pro can detect the exact tonal range of the original, making sure the brightest and darkest areas of images are accurately reproduced to reveal impressive detail and dynamic range.
As well as Epson Scan, the V850 Pro comes with SilverFast SE Plus 8 and i1 Scanner software for advanced, professional scanning features.
This method is perfectly acceptable for the vast majority of slides and negatives.
However, for badly scratched or very dusty items, each slide/negative will benefit from being processed individually. As you can imagine, this is an extremely time consuming process and so, reluctantly, we have to add £1 per image to the prices below. We will only go ahead with this if you request it.
Scans can be performed and saved in TIFF, BMP, or jpg formats. [For further information please refer to our 'Explanation Of Formats' page.]
Digital images are supplied on a 16GB Kingston Data Traveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 flash drive memory stick, for which there is a charge of £11.50.
For normal scanning, the image is processed once at 4000 dpi.
For the absolute in quality, each image can be scanned 16 times. For this there is an additional £3 per image on top of the above prices.
Please note that there is a minimum charge of £20.
P&P is charged at cost.
