SPECIALIST SLIDE GLASS NEGATIVE PLATE SCANNING

Glass plates were far superior to film for research-quality imaging because they were extremely stable and less likely to bend or distort, especially in large-format frames for wide-field imaging. Early plates used the wet collodion process. The wet plate process was replaced late in the 19th century by gelatin dry plates. Glass plate photographic material largely faded from the consumer market in the early years of the 20th century, as more convenient and less fragile films were increasingly adopted.

Our film scanning solutions were designed to elevate the film from the light source in order to keep the material away from heat that can damage some types of film and cause the film to curl.

Working with museums, historical archival companies, corporations and private clients, we can cater for small units to bulk large orders in the many 1000's.  Medium format transparency film. We can save your scanned imags on CD, DVD or USB drive, or if you prefer we can upload them to cloud or other online platforms.
