35mm print film process with scanning

Discussion in 'UK Photography' started by john.stumbles, Jul 15, 2005.

  1. Where's good for getting 35mm print film processed with the negatives
    scanned onto CD at a good resolution? What resolutions and formats can I
    expect? (Photo-CD I suppose: how does that compare with JPEG?)

    I'm actually not bothered if I get print copies at all - just the negs and a
    CD with the digitised images would do, if that works out significantly

    Asda do it for around £5 without prints, any processor with a recent
    mini-lab will be able to do it.
    IME High St. labs all output as jpeg on the CD.
    For higher resolution you will have to take it to a 'proper' photo-lab,
    but the charge will be more than £10 per roll.

  3. I'd love a scanner - I have 1000s of slides and print negs I'd like to
    digitise - but understood a Coolscan was of the order of KiloPounds.

    OK, I've just had a browse and they seem to be sub £1K but still beyond my
    current budget. Incidentally I notice the model COOLSCAN V ED (LS50), which
    is chepaer and obviously intended for the amateur market, but they don't
    say what the differences are (resolution, colour depth, speed, or what).

    I currently use mainly a 3Mpixel digicam which gives me very acceptable
    results on screen, blown up to a moderate degree, and occasionally printed
    up to 10x8. I've just bought a new (used, eBay) body for my ME Super so I
    can use the wide angle and telephoto lenses for those pictures the digicam
    can't do. I don't need pro quality or want to pay pro prices, just
    comparable quality to the digicam (using cheap print film such as Agfacolor
    XRG200 which is about £3 or £4 for 2 rolls of 36 exp from LiDL).

    £2 a film in Boots. This price is only when done with processing but talk
    nicely to the Consultant...

  5. Oh dear, that's no good. Can anyone confirm this, or point me to processors
    that scan at decent res at non-pro prices?
