The best drum scans available for your film. Simple pricing for drum scans based on film format, not megabytes. All scans are 16-bit.

Drum Scanning

The Howtek HR8000 scans up to 8000dpi and can scan film sizes up to 8” x 10”. Unlike the Heidelberg drum scanners (Tango, Primescan, S3900), our drum scanner gives us complete control to set the scanner’s aperture – resulting in the best possible grain rendition. In comparison to CCD scanners (Imacon, Nikon Coolscan, or flatbed scanners) the Howtek can scan the full frame plus film rebate, sprocket holes, or irregularly shaped film (for example, overlapping Holga exposures), with cleaner results and no edge flare.

Scans up to 8000dpi are available in all film formats; including 4″ x 5″ and 8″ x 10″

Candela’s high quality drum scans record all the detail in the film throughout the tonal range. Our scans resolve detail in the highlights and shadows that machine prints or bulk scanning does not. For example, windows or sky that were blown out (or shadows that were blocked up) in inexpensive scans will likely have more detail in a drum scan. This allows for the artist or printmaker to interpret the image, aesthetically and artistically, with adjustments for cropping, density, saturation, contrast, etc.

After scanning, all images are opened and checked for sharpness. We scan to retain all the information in the film, which allows you to make the best possible print when preparing your image for print. Highlights are not clipped and shadows remain open and clean.  Files are burned to DVD or on client-supplied hard drive or USB stick.

ok - I'm ready to order!

File specs

How should I prepare my files and what file formats do you accept?

We accept Jpeg, Tiff, PNG and PSD. Please send uncompressed .jpg or .tif files. Be sure to flatten them and remove any alpha channels prior to uploading.

My file is over 100 megabytes in size! How do I send it to you?

No problem, you can use our large file upload page.

What resolution should my files be?

We prefer to receive files that are 300dpi at the size you want them printed. However we can make great prints from files as low as 150dpi. Please do not increase dpi to 300dpi if your file was not created at that size to begin with - this usually has a negative effect on print quality. We have a step-by-step file preparation guide for your reference. If you’re unsure, contact us.

We do examine each and every file before printing so if we thing your file will not print well we will contact you before printing.
