35 mm slides and prints to Digital Tiff & Jpeg on cloud, access anywhere in the world * - an incredible 60p per slide!
Price includes 3200 dpi tiff files (6400 dpi POA) on the cloud. A second set of jpegs is included free of charge. Surely the best value deal in the UK today
Timeless Moments gives you much more
Using Epson high resolution slide scanners we can breathe new life into those old 35 mm slides. The scanner is especially designed to get the best out of slides and will automatically compensate for fade, exposure, colour and even remove
scratches, dust, fingerprints and dirt, magically rebuilding the correct image. Once scanned the software can improve the image further. Each slide or print is scanned at 3200 dpi (40MB), large enough for an advertising billboard and will give superb prints at A4 or even A3 size. We do not charge more for output as a tiff file.
Digital ICE included as standard!
Digital ICE is the industry standard system for computerised digital restoration of film (CDRF). Developed by Nikon for use with their high end slide scanners, only a highly trained individual using the latest photoshop software can come anywhere close to the level of restoration that can be achieved with Digital ICE and the cost would be extremely high to hand touch up each and every frame to the level of Digital ICE restoration could take between 10 minutes and 2 hours depending on the amount of restoration required per slide.
You may request a Photo DVD for an additional £20.
* Images are stored free of charge for 6 months on the cloud. Access requires an internet connection.
Latest Colour Correction Routines
Image on the left is a scan of how these 12 images actually look. The image on the right is with colour correction added
Digital ICE restores the photographs in 4 different ways shown below:
Digital ICE (Image Correction & Enhancement) Digital ICE works in tandem with Nikonís special LED illumination to remove surface defects like dust and scratches from a scanned image without altering the underlying composition, details or any other elements of the original image.
Digital ROC (Restoration Of Color)
Digital ROC restores colours lost through fading of the original film. After calculating the amount of colour shift, it then instantly rebuilds and restores the deteriorated colour values automatically. The results are faithfully rendered
Digital GEM (Grain Equalisation & Management)
Digital GEM reduces the effects of film grain. It reads the grain details in film, extracting all the vital data related to image quality and color. The resulting images are sharp, clear and devoid of grain clumping or graininess.
Digital DEE (Dynamic Exposure Extender)
Digital DEE makes its debut in Digital ICE4 Advanced. This new feature helps reveal details that are sometimes lost in shadows and highlights. It compensates for the underexposure of backlit subjects or shaded areas as well as the overexposure of brightly lit areas.
NOTES ABOUT DIGITAL ICE AND KODACHROME
Digital Ice works by using infrared light to detect the dust and dirt particles stuck to your film. Even after blasting the film with 100 psi clean air some of these particles are still present and chemically bonded to the film. Kodachrome uses a lot of silver particles in itís emulsion. These particles refract the infra red light differently to normal dirt and can cause digital artifacts in the final scan.
In the worst cases it can even produce no scan at all. Here at Timeless Moments we have worked out a way to use Kodachrome and digital ice together but only on 35mm slides and larger. For smaller slides like the 126 format it is not possible to use Digital Ice reliably. 126 format films are still corrected for discolouration but may still show significant dirt and scratches that unfortunately can only be removed by photoshop which is extremely time consuming and very expensive.
