Here at Chau Digital, we provide various services when it comes to photography and printing services, including scanning. Our professional film scanning services enables you to create highly detailed digital images from your film photography.

A film scanner works by scanning your photographic film directly into a computer, enabling you to scan a print of any size, whereby you can control over various aspects of the image on film, including cropping, aspect ratio, and even removing scratches and film grain, and improving colour reproduction.

We make use of a virtual drum scanner that uses Imacon Flextight technology, allowing us to handle film from 35mm up to 5 x 4” and transform it into digital prints. A flatbed scanner is able to work with A3 pieces, whilst our digital capture services is best for larger or deeper dimensioned works.

Film scanning services are perfect when you need to product high-quality fine art and exhibition prints. The images that are rendered images provide incredible contrast between the light and dark areas, with an incredible level of detail captured during the scan, leaving you with an excellent raw image to work with digitally. You can even maintain this quality when blown up to larger sizes.

If you’re looking for a film scanning in the UK, we offer our services in 8-bit or 16-bit, RGB, or grayscale. Our dedicated team can also offer advice to see which choice is best for you. For example, if you plan to edit your digital images in Photoshop, it is recommended to use 16-bit in your scan.
