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 pocket 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, pocket formats won’t last forever. These valueable memories will decrease in quality with time.

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

If you have your pocket 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 pocket formats by yourself or have them scanned?

Scan pocket formats by yourself

Scanning pocket 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.

The pocket format:

17x13 PocketformatIn 1972 Kodak brought the pocket format to the market as a successor of the instamatic format. Pocket format slides had a size of 13 mm x 17 mm. This format was very successful until the 80s before demand highly decreased. Nevertheless the pocket format is still available as black and white, color and slide film.

With special frames it is possible to view pocket formats in common slide projectors. A big disadvantage was that the projector had to stand quite away from the canvas, if a wide angle lense wasn’t used. Therefore there were projectors that were developed especially for pocket format purposes.

Pocket format were also used for cinemas. Since the slides are very old now, the colors are fading and starting so shift. Faded colors are the bigger problem though: Because cameras were not so high in quality like nowadays, the pictures are not exposed very well.
