Sharing memories in the digital era has become a part of our daily lives. We capture moments as they happen and post them to Facebook or e-mail them off to friends and family in a matter of seconds, often from the very spot they were photographed. What has happened to all the “old memories”? That shoe box full of slides or that collection of negatives in the study that belongs to the albums full of faded prints? The great news is, they are not lost and you can convert them in a digital format to share like all the others. The same technology used to print your negatives over the past decade is still available to produce digital files from those older mediums.
The renowned Fujifilm SP3000 professional scanner is able to produce a wide range of scan resolutions from a number of different film formats. Using various adapters, the unit can scan typical 35mm film, larger professional films as well as mounted slide and transparency film in strips.
At Studio22 we have simplified the process. We offer a service to deliver standard and high resolution scans at maximum quality (this means we use minimal compression Jpegs or even uncompressed Tiff files on request). The more scans you have, the lower the price per scan. Please visit our website for the current prices or special offers.
Other than working in an environment with minimal dust, we use anti-static devices to ensure the negatives and slides are free of dust. The highly advanced software supporting the scanner also ensures your final digital file is checked and the possible remaining dust is digitally removed.
The design team at Studio22 are able to offer a retouching or restoration service for any damaged or badly scratched films. The scanning of prints is another service offered by our design team. All of these files, from old slides or old prints can be printed at Studio22 onto genuine photographic paper using one of our advanced FujiFilm Frontier printers.
Studio22 offers a nationwide service, we can arrange for our courier to collect and deliver orders anywhere in South Africa. Our competitive pricing means the courier fees in conjunction with our bulk discounts can deliver completed professional scan orders at your door for less.
We also offer a fully customized service, you can request various scan sizes and various formats. Please contacts us for specialized services, we will gladly discuss your requirements.
We look forward to the opportunity to digitize your analog.
