Large Format Slide and Negative Scanning

Posted by Chris on 3-23-2012

DVD Your Memories is now offerring large format slide scanning and large format negative scanning! We can now scan 220 large format negatives and large format slide at resolutions up to 3200DPI.

Large format is basically a term for the largest types of negatives and positives. When scanned, large format film can provide some of the highest resolution images you can get! In fact, a 4×5 image has about 16 times the area (and resolution) of a standard 35mm frame. The most common large format size today is the 4×5 format, which was common in cameras used in the 1930s-1950s.

Large format refers to any imaging format of 4×5 inches (102×127 mm) or larger. Large format is larger than the more commonly found “medium format”, the 6×6 cm (2¼×2¼ inch) or 6×9 cm (2¼×3½ inch) size of Hasselblad, Rollei, Kowa, Pentax etc. cameras (using 120 and 220 roll film), and much larger than the 24×36 mm (~ 1.0 x 1.5 inch) frame of 35 mm format.

Use the chart below as a comparison between large format sizes, and the standard sizes.
