APS Negative Scanning Service
Let us scan your APS negatives for optimum quality!
Many people are not familiar with this format, but the development of the APS format was considered an advancement in modern photography. Unlike other formats, the rolled film is contained in a cartridge (even after development). This storage within the cartridge distinguishes the APS from other films. Although an APS film in its cartridge is better protected than, for example, a standard 35mm negative strip, it is worth scanning APS negatives so you know what was on the roll!
The negative films from the Advanced Photo System (APS) introduced in 1996 have a film width of 24mm and have a format of 16.7 x 30.2mm. The films which remain in the cartridge after development have four different markings at the bottom. If the 4th step is marked, the film is developed.
We scan APS images by default at 3000 dpi, which gives an approximate file size of 2 to 5 MB in JPEG image format. If you prefer the TIF format with 4000 dpi, please calculate your required storage based on a picture size of about 60MB each.

APS Negative Scanning FAQ’s
The privacy and protection of your images is of central importance for us. To guarantee there is no misuse of your pictures and to protect your privacy, we have implemented a layered approach in terms of our facilities and processes. In addition to operational measures including the closure and monitoring of the scanning process through electronic devices we also prohibit the use of USB ports and Internet access at our scanning stations. Thus we can guarantee that your private memories are never read by third parties.
ScanCorner keeps a copy of your images for 45 days after the date of the order. If you lose the digital images, we can still retreive the image files for you during this period of time.
Print quality is often defined as approximately 3000 dpi. This would mean that a negative scanned at 3000 dpi can easily be printed in the format as a 24x36cm photo and with the same quality. But we have already tested larger formats and it is possible to get poster prints of up to approx 50x70cm. It is true for slides and negatives that you can print images approximately twice as large as the originals on paper.
