I got very old family pictures from my mother that were held on negatives and that weren’t normal formats. MEDIAFIX was the right choice and was able to digitize the negatives in a great quality. Thank you for that!

Save your APS films from decay

Do you still have old pictures on APS films of special moments with your family? Then you shouldn’t lose any time. Like all old media, APS films won’t last forever. These valueable memories will decrease in quality with time.

Why you should have your APS scannedVerfall von Dias

  • Color fadings: Fading colors are the first sign of age. Saturation and brilliance will lessen.
  • Color tints: Material starts to change with time. This leads to color tints, which means that colors start to shift in a certain direction.
  • Mould: Often APS-films are stored in the attic or in the cellar, where they are exposed to temperature fluctuation and and humidity. This causes mould, which attacks the film material.
  • No optimal storage conditions: At 7° degrees room temperature and a humidity of 15% APS films have optimal storage conditions. It’s quite difficult to achieve this conditions in reality.
  • No slide projector: Even if your APS films are in a good condition,  you need a working slide projector and also a suitable projection surface.

If you have your APS films scanned today, you save some valuable moments and avoid further signs of age. Any questions? Our customer service will gladly give you advice!

With the Premium-inversion we maintain all image information. MEDIAFIX provides you with a clear and sharp image that can be easily enlarged. The Premium-inversion is available for only €0.19 per picture and is only bookable for negatives.

Scan APS films by yourself or have them scanned?

Scan APS by yourself

Scanning APS films by yourself turns out to be quite difficult, since only a few existing gadgets are capable of possibly doing it. A good scanner is expensive (from 500 €) and is only worth it when it is about a large amount of pictures. Cheaper devices only enable low resolutions, which leads to an unsatisfying quality of the scans.
Anyway scanning single pictures is very expensive in time and a professional cleaning not really possible. The process maybe has to be repeated several times, if there is still dirt on the pictures or the image was scanned incorrectly aligned. Also the handling of such scanners is not self-explanatory.

The APS film

APS FilmeIn 1996 Canon, Fujifilm, Kodak and Minolta and Nikon released the Advanced Photo System, better known as APS film. Unlike other films, the APS film is in a closed cassette. The film is removed only for exposure, development und digitization. The film has a status indicator on the bottom part of the cassette, which shows 4 different stages: 1 = unexposed, 2 = partially exposed, 3 = fully exposed, 4 = developed. If you want your APS film digitized at MEDIAFIX, the indicator has to show stage 4. Normally APS films were offered with a capacity of 15, 25 or 40 recordings.

Your favourite pictures don’t seem to have it the easy way: They are carried around, are shown to friends and family. This leads to crinkles, tears and spots, which can ruin your pictures. Fortunately you still have the associated negatives as APS films. They will guarantee that you will never lose the old pictures.

Wrong. APS films also have an expiration date. Incorrect storage in the attic or cellar can let the negatives age faster. Color fadings and mould will occur. Take action now: MEDIAFIX saves your memories and digitizes your olds APS films.

 

What are APS films?

Compared to the common films in the earlier days, the 24 mm wide APS films exist with capacities of 15, 25 or 40 recordings and a negative format of 16,7 mm x 30,2 mm. APS films mostly are negatives.

One big advantage of APS films is that they have optical and magnetic data tracks, that enable data transfer between the camera, film and and the lab. This results in better image quality.

Since we live in a digital world, in which digital cameras and smartphones replaced the analogue photography, the production of APS films was stopped in 2011.

 

Have APS films developed before digitization

If you still own APS film cassettes, you should have them developed before digitization. This is still possible in drug stores and photography shops. We will afterwards convert your analogue pictures to digital. Of course we will invert your negatives.
