120 negatives are rather large - the negatives being approximately 6cm wide. One of the product photos above demonstrates the comparison in size to a 35mm negative.
Sometimes, the negatives are presented in a roll; most of the time, however, each negative is cut.
Because of the generous surface area on the negative (or slide), we are able to scan at a mere 1,200 dpi to create a decent sized image. Our 2,400 dpi scan produces a bigger picture which would be ideal if you intend to place a print of it within a larger (A4 or above) picture frame; our 4,800 dpi scan is much, much larger.
As with all of our colour scans, we employ automatic - light - dust and scratch removal together with grain reduction (where appropriate) and image sharpening. Black and White films will require manual touching up - please let us know if you ultimately require this service too.
All scanned images are uploaded to a cloud area dedicated to you, and, remain there for at least 6 months; this should provide you with ample opportunity to download and/or share them with loved ones - anywhere in the world, with internet access.
When sending your material
When sending your negatives/slides to us, and wherever possible, please ensure that they remain within their original sleeves or wallets. Then, either use a "please do not bend" envelope or sandwich them between two pieces of strong cardboard (without sticking them). In all instances, please ensure your order details are enclosed with your negatives or slides and that you send them to us via signed for delivery. It is important not to touch the image surface with bare fingers when handling it.
The address to send your material to is:
10 Wynsome Street
You are also welcome to personally deliver your negatives/slides. Simply call us to arrange a time.
