Proudest Moments

We were so proud to be chosen by the University of Sussex to preserve film director Sir Richard Attenborough’s never-before-seen photographs. This material spanned Richard Attenborough’s extraordinary life and career and is now at the fingertips of students, researchers and the public.

Over the years, we’ve scanned thousands of photographs from prestigious multi album sets going as far back as early 1900’s for famous British politicians, the whole of Sir Richard Attenborough’s  personal collection of never-before-seen photographs, notes and more besides spanning his extraordinary life and career (accepted by Sussex University in lieu by HM Government from the Attenborough family) to thousands of everyday collections of photos from families throughout Sussex.

APS to Digital Conversion

What is APS Film?

 

Have you ever bought a cheap camera in a gift shop to document your holidays? If so, it’s likely that you’ve got cartridges of APS film stored away somewhere. This film format was the go-to photography film for amateur photographers during the 1990s and 2000s. It’s quite unlike slide film or 35mm slides generally and doesn’t easily compare  to negative film either. Your family members, if of the right age will likely remember this format well!  

‘APS film’ (Advanced Photo Systems) refers to a still photography format produced between 1996 and 2011. The format used a 24mm film and was produced by a number of the largest photography companies including Kodak, Nikon, Canon, and Fujifilm. 

The format was widely used in ‘point and shoot’ amateur cameras during the 1990s and early 2000s.

APS Film to Digital - Relive Your Hidden Gems

How many of us have a draw or shoebox filled with old undeveloped film cartridges? The trouble is that today there are very few places that are still able to develop them. We can convert them to quality digital files as a digital format. 

Many of the old high street photography shops have closed down in recent years. Unfortunately, the ones that are left have often sold their old equipment. This means that it’s now harder than ever to get access to our undeveloped films.

Can there be anything sadder than the thought of old photos locked away inside a film cartridge with no way to develop them? At Supaphoto we offer the answer to this problem with our APS film scanning service.

Our APS Film Scanning Service UK

Our APS film to digital conversion service will transfer your old cartridges into high quality digital images. The team of experts at our photo lab will carefully remove your APS film in preparation for scanning. We will then closely examine the film surface to ensure the highest detail scans of your images. Each film will then be put  through a process of medium – high resolution negative scanning to produce crisp digital copies of the original images.  

Your images will then be treated to a sensitive digital restoration designed to reduce the effect of damaged picture elements. 

We will also optionally perform minor colour correction to restore the original brightness of colours whilst maintaining the quality of the original film. 

Once your films have been digitised and restored they will then be available in a number of storage methods to suit your needs. See our list of popular options. Your finish images can also be uploaded to your family’s social media.

APS to CD / DVD service: We will transfer the images from your original APS film onto a high definition DVD. This will be compatible with most modern video technology

APS to External Storage: We will transfer the images from your original APS film onto an external storage device. This can be connected to most modern TVs, PCs and Macs. If you want to know more about our products and services then get in touch including our photo scanning, video transfer, cine, audio and slide scanning services.  Our friendly team of experts will be happy to help you find the best solution to meet your needs. Our goal is always to offer great customer service and we always do our very best to make you happy. Its lovely to see our customers upload the scanned images to their family social media accounts!

 – One of the main selling points for APS cameras was that they allowed users to select from three different aspect ratios. These were:

C – “Classic” 4 x 6″ (25.1 × 16.7 mm)

H – “High Definition” 4 x 7″ (30.2 × 16.7 mm)

P – “Panoramic” 4 x 11”. (30.2 × 9.5 mm)

APS cartridges were available in several lengths including 15, 25, and 40 exposures. Hopefully that’s not too much detail before you contemplate to convert aps film to digital uk.
