35mm Slide Scanning Service

The Overview

Professional scanning of 35mm, 110, 126, 127 slides in a 2" x 2" slide mount. The scans are saved as TIFF files, JPEG files, or both and burned to CD or DVD. We then ship you back your slides and the CD's/DVD's containing the scans. We offer scan resolutions of 1000-4000dpi and a wide range of processing options. Digital ICE is included on all scans unless the film does not support it or you request it not be used.

Our Process

  1. Slides are individually examined, cleaned using compressed air or a lint free cloth and mounts, if any, are removed and discarded.

  2. Slides are then sorted as per film type (black & white, colour, kodachrome, 35mm, 110, 126, etc) as necessary.  Please refer to the information on the right of the screen for slide format definitions.

  3. All slides are checked to make sure that the emulsion side is down or facing away.  Most slides will indicate this by stating "This side toward screen".  For others the slides are held up to a light where the dull side will be the emulsion side.

  4. A test scan of several of the 35mm Slides is then completed using the settings that you selected on your "35mm Positive/Slide Scanning Order Form".  Once everything has been tested and adjustments made the scanning of your items is commenced.

  5. Once the scanning of your 35mm slides is completed according to your specifications, each photo is then viewed on our colour calibrated monitors where they are then cropped and corrected as necessary.

  6. During the scanning process, depending upon the number of items to be scanned, samples are placed on a secure website for you viewing.  These files will typically be about 100KB in size and will not be suitable for printing.  They will remain on the website for up to 6 weeks.

  7. Once all items are scanned they are then burned to either CD's or DVD's as per your requests.

  8. Once complete payment has been received from you all items will be shipped back to you.

Slide Format Definitions

 
Standard 35mm slide mount. This slide format is the most common.  The film itself is roughly 23mm x 34 mm with the scanned area actually being 24mm x 36mm.  This causes a black border around the edge which typically requires cropping.

The 110 Format was retired by Kodak in 1982. This extremely small slide image, 13mm x 17 mm, can be scanned but should be scanned at least 3000 DPI due to the small film area being scanned. 

This is also a 110 Format slide but in a 1" x 1" mount.  We can scan these small mounts but there is an additional $0.40 per slide handling charge.

The 126 "Instamatic" Format can also be scanned but there will be a very small amount of film area at the top and bottom (.025" at top and bottom) which our scanners cannot capture. This slide has a 1"x1" square film opening. If capturing the entire film is essential, you can have them scanned on the medium format film scanner.   Click Here

The standard 127 Format is too large to be scanned by our Nikon Coolscan 5000 scanners and must be scanned on our medium format film scanner   Click Here

The 127 SuperSlide Format is too large to be scanned by our Nikon Coolscan 5000 scanners and must be scanned on our medium format film scanner   Click Here
