These were designed to go into cheap Point and Shoot cameras and no high quality APS camera was ever made.
Most cameras supported three modes, these were:
C = CLASSIC (3:2 ratio, 4 x 6" print)
H = HDTV (16:9 ration, 4 x 7" print)
P = PANORAMIC (3:1 Ration, 10x12" print)
All these different modes were cropped from the same H image, we scan the full sized H image and reset all the images to the whole frame.
What this means is that if you have taken an image in PANORAMIC mode, you will get the whole image back and often this will include a lot more detail, you can then easily crop your images back to how you want them in any imaging editing software.
Due to our unique workflow with APS carts we offer the highest resolution and largest size possible with APS frames.
APS Carts are priced the same no matter how many frames there are on the film, we do offer discounts for 20 carts and over.
Please note that APS cartridges were designed to be unwound only a few times and are prone to the mechanism breaking which can mean some carts will not go through automatically, we may then have to take the film out of the cartridge to scan the film separately. The film is always put back into the original cartridge and then taped back up.
Scans are saved either and Jpegs or Tiffs, depending on how many you have and the whether they are Jpegs or Tiffs determine what they get saved to. Downloads can be set up for up to 200 jpgs etc, CD or DVD are free and a popular choice for archiving.
You can supply a USB stick with your order to save them to or we can supply a quality USB stick for just £10.
For larger projects a hard drive may be required again you can supply one or we can supply one for around £45
If your order does not total to at least £25 please use the Minimum order purchase box below to order your scans, this is due to the fact that even the smallest order of just one or two scans take considerable time to set up and process.
