Thread: Where's a good place to get my negatives (35mm) scanned?

    Default Where's a good place to get my negatives (35mm) scanned?

    Hello all... Not sure which forum to post so I'll post here.
    I recently shot a roll with the Dynax 7, and I've sent the film for develop and scan. Cost me $15 and the results were very bad. (Let's not get into that.)

    I'd like to know if anyone can recommend a place where I can get high-res (>6mp, 8-10mp preferable) 16-bit TIFF files from 35mm negatives at reasonable price. Can anyone help?

    I've asked Kex already but he doesn't do whole-roll processing like last time liao.

    Cheers!

    TIFF? hmm... most shops i've checked offer 8 or 16 bit JPGs, or BMP. haven't come across any shop that does TIFF....

    if TIFF, think u must look for shops which offer high-end drum scanning liao.

    Hmm.. thought jpeg only came in 8bit? If there's 16bit scanning normally means it's a tiff. any place to recommend?

    Thx!

    there's this CSer... Kex, his shop is in bedok north, and does drum scanning of negs. Maybe you can PM him to check. I got a couple of B&W negs scanned by him. Higher res and cheaper than fotohub
