Scanned in the USA
Your irreplaceable negatives are too precious to outsource. Unlike other scanning companies, once your work arrives at our facility in Utah, it stays here. More Info
Your negatives deserve the best, which is why we avoid flat bed scanners when converting your negatives, We proudly use the Nikon 5000, which delivers a much higher quality.

CD's & DVD's
Want your negatives scanned to a disc? We offer to burn your digital images to either a CD or DVD. The quality difference between a CD and DVD is the same, but the difference is that a DVD will hold more data than a CD. Because DVD's hold more data than CD's, often times it is the more cost effective choice as well, if the order form suggests you will need more than 1 CD.
If you are looking for the ability to view your negatives on your TV you will want a
VIDEO DVD, and will need to select our DVD Video Slideshow option.

There are 2 Types of 126 Film
126 film is not all the same, as one is in a mount, and if called a "126 Slide", and the other type is not contained in a mount, which is called a "126 Negative", and typically comes in strips. Because scanning 126 Negatives is more labor intensive, the pricing is different.
126 Slides (otherwise known as Instamatic film), are contained in a 2" x 2" mount, and the actual film is 1 1/1" x 1 1/16", or in other words, 28mm x 28mm.
If your 126 film looks like this, and is NOT contained in a mount, then you have a 126 Format Negative.
We do NOT skip frames when scanning your 126 negative strips, and all frames must be scanned. If you do not want digital copies of all the images that are scanned, feel free to order our On-line Image Organization System (IOS) where you can view and delete and unwanted images.
We bill per number of frames, or images that are scanned, not per strip.

Figuring out what scanning resolution you want your negatives / slides digitized at is an important factor in your project. Scanning resolution will determine the quality of the scan. It is similar to the concept of megapixels on a digital camera, and as with most things, the higher the scanning resolution you choose, the higher the quality. Want to see the difference? Check out our scanning resolution examples.
