Heythrop Zoo Photographic Negative Film Scanning

PHOTOGRAPHIC FILM SCANNING

A project we have recently completed has been converting an archive of photographic medium format film into high quality digital images, suitable for online presence. To ensure a high quality output, we need follow important processes:
  1. The correct scanner for converting this medium
  2. The software to best capture the scanners capability
  3. ICC profiles for calibration
  4. Cleaning and maintenance of the film
  5. White glove approach due to oils on fingers
  6. Dust control

These processes are all very important to bring out the very best in the film. One scanner or software approach will never offer the best solutions for our clients. Our studio is equipped with many different types of scanners which are all controlled by Silverfast Archival software, which offers leading innovation to bring about the very best in all photographic film.

In the film world, medium format has moved from being the most widely used film size (the 1900s through 1950s) to a niche used by professionals and some amateur enthusiasts, but one which is still substantially more popular than large format. While at one time a variety of medium-format film sizes were produced, today the vast majority of the medium-format film is produced in the 120/220 film sizes.

Onion Skin Archive Book Scanning - What is this and how do we process the pages?

CURRENT BOOK SCANNNING PROJECT.  We are currently working on a very large archive of old books that require HQ scanning to Archival TIFF images.  Once processed, these images will be prepared to PDF with OCR (optical character recognition) for a complete searchable output.   The difficulty in this order, is the books are prepared using a medium called Onion Skin Paper. Whilst we are very confident in preparing this type of medium, it is very important to be aware that there are risks with scanning, given the sometimes-fragile nature of the paper.   Tears and rips can occur, so a very gentle white glove approach is required. Equally, with the nature of onion skin, the paper is very translucent which requires a sheet of white paper to be placed under each page before scanning. This then grants a very good HQ image that we can work with.   WHAT IS ONION SKIN PAPER? Onion skin paper is a type of very light weight, almost translucent paper that somewhat resembles the outer skins
