Why film negative drum scanning?
Film negative drum scanning produces the highest quality digital reproduction possible, with each image retaining its original integrity and detail when printed at maximum size
Which drum scanner do you use?
We utilize a top of the line Aztek DPL-8000 drum scanner in order to provide the ultimate in archival and exhibition quality scans
What is the process of drum scanning?
Film negatives are mounted on a circular drum through a wet-mount process that ensures that all of the detail captured within the negative is recorded
What exactly do you deliver?
All drum scans have their colors neutralized to the original exposure captured on the film–by default, we provide flat-contrast base scans in TIF format

We offer advanced post-production services where we deliver a cleaned, fully color-corrected print-ready file. Pricing varies per job—please contact us for more info
