Imacon Drum Scanning Service

My Articles and Babble


For those that view my blog and who are un aware, I own my own Imacon Flextight Drum scanner and all the slide film images on my web site are scanned with this scanner. This is the same scanner I listed earlier this year for sale (I must have been delusional at the time thinking of selling it)


I offer my drum scanning service to other photographers and I already scan work for quite a few already. My scanner can scan anything up to 6×17 but not 5×4. I have scanning plates for all formats including Xpan.

Here is some feedback from a customer who I did some scans for recently who had been using another company based in Melbourne who scans with an Imacon.


“Hi Matt,

I have been going through the scans and I’m really happy with them. They are a lot truer to the original trannies than the (company name removed) scans I had done. Some of the scans (company name removed) did were so far removed in tone and colour from the originals it took me literally hours (days) and multiple tries to get them back to normal. Your scans seem to take a few minutes to have them looking how I want…. “

The slide film sent that was scanned for this customer was Velvia 50, Velvia 100, Provia 100f and Kodak VS


There is nothing worse than getting a bad scan and that’s what prompted me to buy my own scanner to keep the quality at a high level and to save time correcting bad scans.


If your interested in trying my scanning services then I am happy to scan an image or two free of charge so you can see for yourself the quality and true colour my scanner can get from your images.

My pricing on scanning and details on sending your film can be seen here.

Discounts are offered to on going customers and bulk scanning. Any questions just email me.
