828 Photographic Film Scanning

828 is a film format for still photography. Kodak introduced it in 1935, only a year after 135 film. 828 film was introduced with the Kodak Bantam, a consumer-level camera. The 828 format uses the same basic film stock as 135 film, but the film lacks the sprocket holes of 135. The standard image format is 40 × 28 mm.  

828 cameras never achieved widespread popularity, and the format had a rather limited run. Kodak's last 828 cameras were the Pony 828 in the US, produced until 1959, and the Bantam Colorsnap 3 in the UK, produced until 1963. Kodak ceased production of 828 format film in 1985. The Traid Fotron, sold in the late 1960s, used 828 format film as well. However, the film was enclosed in a proprietary pop-in cartridge and so the consumer never actually saw the film; instead, they merely returned the entire cartridge to Traid for processing.

Enhancements:  All negatives and positives are individually assessed by an experienced technician and adjustments are made using Adobe Archival Tone and Sharpening to optimise the resulting scan.  Professional film archive scanning to TIFF, JPEG images.
