A Little More About Our Medium Format Scanning Service

medium format film scans

Whether your medium format film is as a strip, individual frames or mounted in cardboard, plastic, metal or glass, we can s can them for you.

Although the film area is larger than the 35mm slide or negative, we have still retained the higher resolution of 3200dpi as standard. this ensures we capture as much detail as available in the film.

If the film is mounted, the cost to scan is a little higher due to the additional time we will need to spend plastic or glass that encases the film.

PLACE YOUR ORDER

How long will it take to scan my  order?

Good question! It really depends upon how many medium format film are in an order. We would expect to turnaround an order within a week. Larger slide orders are likely to take longer but we would always let customers know how long a large order might take. 

Do you scan to any other format than jpg?

Yes we do! Let us know if you require anything other than JPG in the on-line order form comments section.

Will you scan in the order sent?

Yes! We will always endeavour to do this. Occasionally a slip up may occur but this can easily be rectified on your computer.

Do you clean the film negatives before scanning?

Yes we do. We try to eliminate as much dust as possible pre-scanning. We lightly brush each slide with a Kinetronics anti-static brush to dislodge dust particles then blow each slide individually with compressed air. If your slides are very dirty or have mould or fungus, we recommend cleaning them thoroughly before sending them to us. We can provide heavier cleaning for dirty slides but unfortunately we would need to apply an additional charge based upon how bad the slides or negatives are.

Do you use digital ice?

We used to but it can often badly distort things such as eyes  and nostrils. It also softens and an image removing detail such as buttons on a coat, telephone lines against the sky etc. Our view is it is better to see a few speckles of dust than to blur or distort an image.

Do you keep a copy of the scans?

Yes, we keep a digital backup of both the original scans and the enhanced scans. We keep these for 28 days after payment and then delete completely. We are happy to accommodate requests to extend or shorten this period if requested by a customer. 

Can you dispose of my originals  if i don't want them sending back?

We prefer not to, but we will if this is what you require. We use a local secure shredding company and there is a charge depending upon the size and weight.

Do you ever use a customers scans on your website or for anything else?

No. We will never use any customers images. They are the customers property, besides which, we would be infringing copyright laws.xpress permission from a customer, which we would never ask for.

do i have to count the Film frames before sending?

No! Life is too short for that! Unless you want to count everything, we are happy to give you an estimate once your order has been received (to ensure no huge surprises regarding the total cost). A full and accurate count takes place as we scan and we will send you an invoice for the actual number.

Can you put my scans into named folders?

Yes we can. Just make sure your medium format films are in separate bundles and add a title for the folder name.  

Do you crop and rotate my scans or do I have to do it when I get the scans back?

We will crop and orientate your scans. We'd love to guarantee 100% accuracy....but very occasionally, we may not be able to determine the correct oreintation. Should this happen, you should be able to easily orientate on your computer.

Some of my photographs are a little risqué, is this a problem?

We can scan your risqué photos if you want us to. We will not however scan anything that is illegal.

I have a rush order, can you help?

Absolutely, if you are in a hurry and need a quick turnaround, we can offer an Express service for a small premium. Just contact us if you need this service.
