What’s The Difference?

That’s the question many asked when seeing HD television for the first time. At first glance, there doesn’t appear to be much difference, but over time we tend to pick up on the subtle details and eventually they are no longer subtle! The small differences between one scanner and another may seem arbitrary with a cursory glance, but we’ve picked and prodded at hundreds of images scanned from almost every major manufacturer’s best machines. There is a difference, and you’ll see it; the smaller details are clear and subtle bits of information are not lost in the shadows.

Our Equipment

  • Epson V700
    Epson V700

    This flagship of Epson's scanners produces the best detail in shadows and highlights as well the most accurate color and sharpness.

  • Nikon 5000 ED
    Nikon 5000 ED

    Nikon left the film scanning business, but their scanners are legendary. They produce brilliant images with immense range (and sell for double their original cost on Ebay, even used).

  • Nikon 9000 ED
    Nikon 9000 ED

    The big, but younger, brother of the 5000 ED, this scanner manages medium format and is used for Kodachrome slides as well for its enhanced Digital ICE.

Our Staff

Each department (photo, film, video/audio) has a single manager, and they are solely responsible for the project once it is approved and ready for processing. Our culture of honest, respectful communication helps to set the correct expectations for each project and to make clients aware of even the smallest flaws in their media to avoid surprises and to be sure we have captured at the highest level possible. With a small team of less than 10 full-time staff, we have a tight-knit group where each feels responsible to the client and takes ownership of the work being delivered.

Our System

Every order is inspected upon arrival at our studio. We make sure that the cost estimate is accurate, and that any questions we have about organization, unusual media types, or custom requests are answered before proceeding. Throughout the process your order is kept in its own clear container and every workstation has only one order being digitized at a time.
