We are running a reduced schedule, open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (11.30-4.30pm) only. We are operating with half of our normal workforce in order to provide a safe working environment and enable social distancing in the workplace.
Scanning is available only to those who have scanned previously with us and the minimum booking is for 1 hour. Payment is pre-pay (you will be sent a Paypal invoice). If you want to book the scanning room please email [email protected]
Come and use our top-spec Imacon Flextight 949 virtual drum scanner to get the most out of your film. Our pro set up includes Mac Pro with fully colour calibrated Eizo screen and Adobe Creative Suite.
Our dedicated, scanning room features an Imacon 949 Virtual Drum Scanner, with a maximum optical resolution of 8000ppi, as well as an Epson 10000XL A3 plus flat bed scanner, suitable for scanning art work up to A3, as well as film, making an excellent choice for producing digital contact sheets.
The scanners are driven by a dual quad core MacPro, with the Adobe Creative Suite CS5, connected to a fully colour managed, calibrated Eizo screen.
The scanning room is available to hire in 20 minute slots, and for those who have not used the Imacon (with Flexcolor software), an induction is given in the first session (inductions are available Monday – Friday between 10:00 and 5:00PM, first session is always one hour). For first time users, a basic knowledge of Photoshop is useful, and those with experience of raw file processing can normally be up and running within five minutes.
Holders are available for scanning strips of 6 35mm frames, individual 35mm frames, strips of 120 film, individual frames of 6×4.5, 6×6, 6×7, as well as for scanning 5×4 film. The Imacon scanner does not take mounted 35mm slides.
To minimise the time needed to clean up your scans, we recommend bringing cotton gloves, to prevent nasty finger prints.
