This service is based on a Nikon bulk 35mm slide film scanner, with specially modified software to produce extremely accurate colour (no other service in Australia offers a bulk scanning service with anything like our level of colour accuracy).
This service is only availble for 35mm mounted positive transparency film (i.e. 35mm slides). More information about the Nikon Scanner.
All film to be scanned on the Nikon must be mounted 35mm film (i.e. slides). Please note there is a minimum order fee of $20 for Nikon Scans to cover set up time. If your film is not mounted, you will need to use our Premium Scanning Service or buy mounts and mount the film.
All film for this service must be mounted in smooth, plastic slide mounts, in excellent condition.
Please note we do not accept film mounted in most Reflecta or Matin mounts, as these will not load through the feeder (too many ridges and they're never straight!).
We generally do not accept film in cardboard mounts unless they are in spectacularly good condition.
Please note if you send any Kodachrome film along, you must separate this film from Ektachrome and tell us that it is Kodachrome as otherwise the scanner will assume everything is Ektachrome. If you're not sure, open one of your mounts and check the rebate, it should tell you what time of film it is (if you're still not sure, ask us!).
Automatic dust and scratch removal does not work with Kodachrome, thus some dust and scratch cleaning work will be required.
Here follows a few examples of slide mounts we can accept, as well as some we can't.
Basically, if the slides do not catch against each other at all when you rub a two together, you should be ok. If in doubt, or you think your mounts will work despite not meeting our criteria, please contact us to discuss.
Plastic, clean, smooth mounts.
Mounts with obvious bumps and ridges on their surface, cardboard mounts, mounts with labels stuck to them.

When you're ready, use this online product to submit your order details and then follow these notes to send/bring your film in. (Note we do not process your payment until we receive the actual film to be scanned, but submitting your order online means you will get tracking details and notifications by email as your job moves through our queue).
