Disc Film Scanning Services

Introduced in 1982, disc film was aimed at the consumer market as a still-photography format that has since been discontinued. The film comes as a flat disc housed within a plastic cartridge. Each disc holds fifteen 10mm x 8mm exposures, which are arranged around the outside of the disc. Disc film allowed for cameras to be thinner and more compact than other cameras. The image on the negative is only 10mm x 8mm, which leads to poor definition and grainy images not suitable for printing.

Negative spindles are complex due their grain and their size. With this in mind, we ensure to clean and process your spindles in a specific archival way, which will bring the very best out of these film types. As standard these spindles must be digitised at 4800dpi 48bit TIFF Archival files, to ensure enough resolution to capture all the detail in the small negatives and enough bit depth to salvage detail from the highlights and shadows. From there, we bring all the images into our Archival Suite software, applying image correction before converting to JPEG, for your ease of use.
