Do you still have Kodak discs?

These often dust away in a drawer somewhere, preventing you from sharing your valuable memories with the rest of the family The photos, cards and such are also subject to loss of quality.

By having this photographic material digitized, you immediately create a secure backup of these precious memories. You can also easily share them as digital images, via email or social media, with family, friends and/or acquaintances. It is also possible to use these digital images to create a beautiful new (digital) photo book, ideal if you have several children.

We can scan your Kodak discs for you.

Handling the discs

In order to scan the discs sharply, we need to remove the inner ring from the disc . We do this as standard. If you do not want this inner ring to be removed, you must indicate this on the order form. Please note: the scans become less sharp when the inner ring is left intact!

File formats

We can deliver just about all common formats. We normally use JPEG format. This gives a very good quality while the files don’t get too large. We can also transfer the photos in uncompressed format. TIFF is a common format for this. This format is often used in professional printing. However, this format creates much larger files: with a small image slide scan at 4000 DPI, a TIFF file is about 70 MB in size.

Technique

We use professional scanners. For photo discs we use the Epson Perfection V850 PRO flatbed scanner.

The Digital ICE4 Advanced™ automatic correction function automatically removes scratches, damage and fingerprints from slides. Our scanners are the best tested in many independent tests.

Output

  • After scanning and possibly applying image corrections, the films can be transferred to any format you want.

Frequently Asked Questions – Digitizing Kodak Discs

Kodak Disc Film – what are the technical specifications?

Kodak Disc film is a no longer supported, photo film format that was intended for the consumer market. I had been introduced by Kodak in 1982.
The film is shaped like a flat disk and is completely housed in a plastic cartridge. Each disc contains fifteen 10 × 8 mm images arranged around the outside of the disc, with the disc rotated 24° between successive images.
The system was a consumer-oriented product, and most cameras are self-contained units with no expansion capabilities. Thanks to the disc film, they are compact and considerably thinner than other cameras. The cameras are very easy to load and unload and are generally fully automated. The cassette has a built-in dark slide to prevent stray light from reaching the film when the disc is removed.
Because the film is run on a disc rather than a spool, the cassette is very thin. The flat nature of the format also led to the potential advantage of greater sharpness over cassette formats with a curved spool (such as Minox film, 110- and 126-film). Disc film has a very thick acetate base, similar thickness to 4 × 5″ sheet film, which keeps the film much flatter than the other formats of the time.
