Why drum scan?

Simply, there is no better, more precise way to translate the nuances of analogue film into the digital domain. The unique controls and precision of a drum scanner far out perform any other method.

Drum scans offer incredible detail suitable for large format printing combined with exceptionally smooth tonal infomation from brightest whites to darkest blacks. No other method of scanning offers such refined digital files from colour negatives, transparencies and black & white film originals.

Our custom, calibrated colour workflow, takes advantage of the finest Heidelberg drum scanner, Primescan D8200 and Nexscan F4200 flatbed in a virtually dust free Hepa air filtered studio. With the sole aim of extracting the best out of film.

All our machines are maintained by industry leading scanner engineer, Karl Hudson.
