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 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 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 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.

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

The half-format

24 x 24 mm

Halbformat-DiaHalf-formats in most cases have dimensions of 24 x 24 mm or 18 x 24 mm and arised in the 60s. Like most other formats, they exist as slide, negative or black and white films. One of the best-known half-format is the rapid format from Agfa in 24 x 24 mm. The rapid format is a common 35 mm film, which has a perforation on the top and bottom edge. Instead of 36 recordings, the rapid format could expose 54 shots per film.

18 x 24 mm

The 18 x 24 film was mostly shot with a half-format camera. The cameras usually used the normal 35 mm film, but exposed in the format 18 x 24 mm, which originally was known as silent cinema format. Therefore the amount of pictures that could be taken doubled from 12 to 24, 24 to 48 and 36 to 72.
