VANBAR offer three scanning service options . Imacon Flextight ,Fuji SP3000 & Notitzu SP1800


Flextight scans are of the highest quality. These scanners are used to provide Imacon -Flextight -949-Film -Scanner _5ba 186b 988c 747d 8cfddc 2f 53eec 72faartists/photographers with exhibition quality files. It is recommended to order a Flextight scan when needing a file for large scale printing or high resolution scans.

The Imacon Flextight 949 is a superb scanner offering a dynamic range of 4.4 and excellent sharp results for prints up to large sizes. The Imacon Flextight 949 was the last Imacon branded scanner to be released before the merger of Imacon and Hasselblad, and is significantly better than even previous Imacon scanners. In terms of shadow penetration, sharpness and low noise, it is one of the best scanners on the planet and easily competes with any other scanner available. The technology in the 949 is as good as, if not better than, the now re-branded Hasselblad X5 machines.

Scans will be produced as16 bit RGB TIFF files.

Negatives will be cleaned before scanning. We take every precaution to produce a dust free file although even with extensive cleaning most scans do produce a small amount of dust.
Vanbar will not repeat a scan for dust removal.

The files produced are 'raw' scans, by this we mean we do not make any corrections to colour or editing such as noise correction, sharpening, cropping, dodge/burn, profiling, toning, up/down scaling etc.

If you have any scan requirements that are out of our regular specifications we can produce a customised scan; this requires a short consultation at the time of order and may incur additional charges.
