Negative Film Scanning Is a Dust Magnet!  What we do to minimise dust 

We brush each film strip or Medium format negative with anti static brushes and blow with compressed air to remove as much dust as possible. We also use infrared dust detection when scanning. Please note - infrared does not work with black and white film.

Please be aware, film is a dust magnet and no matter how much cleaning is done, there will always be a small amount remaining when scanned. We do as much as possible to keep this to a minimum. 

Is 3200 DPI Resolution Enough for Negative Film?

Why use 3200 dpi for digitising film?

Extensive scanning & research has proven 3200 is the optimum for the commercial scanners we use.

3200 dpi  also ensures that customers receive high quality resolution files that are manageable in terms of file size and allow for large reprints  if needed with optimum detail quality.
