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.
