Save your half-formats from decay
Do you still have old half-format pictures of special moments with your family? Then you shouldn’t lose any time. Like all old media, half-formats won’t last forever. These valueable memories will decrease in quality with time.
Why you should have your half-formats scanned
- 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 half-formats 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% half-formats have optimal storage conditions. It’s quite difficult to achieve this conditions in reality.
- No slide projector: Even if your half-formats are in a good condition, you need a working slide projector and also a suitable projection surface.
