Slide Scanning Services
Some scanners are better suited for different types of film than others. If you are looking to convert your slides into digital files, michaels offers the choice of three scanners depending on your needs - two designed specifically for E6/slide film and the other, a virtual drum scanner offering the highest quality scan for all film types.
For each scanner, we offer multiple levels of our scanning services which provides flexibility in file and print size.
Level 2 - Recommended print size up to 8x10 inches (25MB file)
1-99 slides $4.50 each.
100+ slides $3.50 each.
For an even better scan quality in terms of tonality & sharpness, the Durst Sigma Plus Scanner is ideal.
This is a Professional high-speed film scanner designed primarily for E6 (Slide) scanning. Files can be saved as either JPG or TIFF files. TIFF is the ideal choice if you want to do further manipulation on the file. Optional Digital Ice dust and scratch removal is also available on request.
Level 1- Recommended print size up to 5x7 inches (10MB JPG or 20MB TIFF)
1-9 slides $4.50 each
10+ slides $3.95 each

If you are after the highest quality scan, you can't look past the Imacon Flextight scanner which is a virtual drum scanner. Its ability to resolve detail is far superior to that of other scanners as it bends the film while it scans in order to maintain perfect focus and sharpness. So, if you want to take full advantage of all the strengths of film, the Imacon Flextight is the ideal scanner. Files are provided as 16bit TIFF files - the equivalent of shooting with a medium format back.
