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 instamatic formats from decay

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

Why you should have your instamatic 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 instamatic 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% instamatic formats have optimal storage conditions. It’s quite difficult to achieve this conditions in reality.
  • No slide projector: Even if your instamatic formats are in a good condition,  you need a working slide projector and also a suitable projection surface.

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

Scan instamatic formats by yourself or have them scanned?

Scan instamatic formats by yourself

Scanning instamatic formats 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.

General information about instamatic

Instamatic (126 film):

28x28 Instamatic DiaThe instamatic format was launched to the market in 1963 by Kodak and is also known as 126 film. The big advantage of the instamatic format was that the film could be inserted into the camera much easier.

Since inserting the square format films was easier to handle, these films kept up until the 80s. Then the handling of 35 mm films started to improve, which lead to a decreasing demand for instamatic films. Until 2007 instamatic films were still produced and sold by the Italian company Ferrania.

Instamatics exist as negative, slide and black and white films and the films had a capacity of 12, 20 or 40 pictures. If they were framed, it was even possible to insert them into common slide scanners. The standard format for usual had dimensions of 90 x 90 mm. The 126 film was in a plastic cassette with a black paper layer on the back. You can recognize instamatic films by labels like Agfa Safety Film, Kodak Safety Film, Perutz Safety Film or Agfa XR 200.
