We recommend that scans
from 35mm film not exceed 100mb (rgb) - even fine grained film
does not have more useful information in it beyond that resolution.
Larger formats can be scanned at larger sizes. Our default color
space is J. Holmes, Ektaspace 5 unless you request something else.
Dust is cloned from images and files are burned onto archival
CDs at no additional charge.
See a chart
comparing file sizes and resolutions for different film formats.
Note: It takes more time and materials for us to scan a single frame that is on a strip rather than the single frame by itself. Please cut frames to scan from their strips and send them to us individually. There will be an additional $10 charge per strip to scan images not removed in this way.
Color space (RGB or grayscale) and bit depth (8 or 16) both affect the file size of the scan but do not affect the size of the print you can make. Scan resolution largely determines how large a print can be made from the scan. Each row in the table below represents a single scan resolution. The differences in file size within each row are cause by some combination of color space and bit depth. Pricing is based on resolution so any of the options at the same resolution are priced the same.
