Digital Scanning with a Camera

The fast, accurate and predictable way of digitising your assets!

When you want something Scanned, you might be forgiven for thinking of a Drum, Flatbed or Slide Scanner, and traditionally you would be right. And there are still companies out there offering scanning services using these devices.
But what if we told you that the future of scanning is not with these traditional devices but instead with a digital camera!
Not any old digital camera, but a purpose made digital capture device, designed and built specifically for capturing Film, Glass Plate and Flat Artwork.

At Peartree Photo we have the latest Phase One iXH 150MP Digital Solution. It is capable of digitally capturing virtually any type of material from 35mm film, glass plates and artwork up to A0. And the beauty is that it very, very fast and extremely high quality. And unlike a Drum scanner there is very little prep required, just a quick dust removal. The digital capture is instant and the quality is always the highest possible. To achieve  the same quality from a drum scanner you will need at least 10 mintes to prep and load the film and further 10 minutes to scan. We can also digitise your 35mm slides at up to 5,500ppi without removing them from their frames , again instantly, so if you have a large collection, we will have them ready for you in no time at all.

If you have artwork you would like to archive or reproduce then the iXH 150mp is the answer. As with film the digital capture is instant, and we don't even need to unmount it. (please note we can capture behind glass but the quality may be reduced due to impurities and refraction). You can be there while we capture your artwork, you will see your precious artwork reproduced at the highest museum quality digital capture in an instant!

“One doesn’t stop seeing. One doesn’t stop framing. It doesn’t turn off and on. It’s on all the time.”
– Annie Leibovitz
