APS Film Information: The film is housed in a single-spool 39 mm long plastic cartridge. The basic diameter is 21 mm, while it measures 30mm at the slot where the film exits. The slot is protected by a lightlock door. It is available in 40, 25 and 15 exposure lengths. The film surface has a transparent magnetic coating, and the camera uses this information exchange (IX) system for recording information about each exposure. The camera handles winding and rewinding automatically, to the extent that partially exposed films can be removed and used later. Numbered symbols (called 'visual indicators') on the cartridge end indicate the status.

Important Notes:

  1. Advanced photo system APS film is contained within a cartridge, both exposed and unexposed film. On the end of APS cartridges there is a visual exposure indicator. We can only scan your APS film that have been processed.

  2. If your film is jammed in the cartridge we will remove the film to process., the film will be same but the cartridge may be damaged.

  3. APS cameras were designed as a mass produced low cost alternative to 35mm cameras. You will never get the same quality image from an APS film being scanned to digital  that you will see with modern day digital cameras or old 35mm film cameras, especially with low light images. We have the best technology to give great results from APS films however if the original material is of low quality then so will the digital scan.

  4.  Our scanners automatically reads the DX code from film, giving the correct frame number and colour correction to each image. Please note, there is no scanner on the market to retrieve additional data such as date of photo from an APS film.

  5. APS films must have been previously processed for us to scan, i.e. you have previously had prints from the films, any un-processed films will still be scanned and charged for but will produce no images. Films are also exposed during the scanning process.

  6. Dirty films  (Well looked after APS films will have next to no dust due to the protective cases they are in) We avoid touching any film or negative images, we use air blowers to remove surface dust but if the slides are dirty or sticky we can not remove this and it may be visible on the scans. We use top of the range scanners and digital ice software to reduce the amount of dust/scratch marks on the digital image but we can not 100% guarantee that all marks will be removed, basically the better quality your originals the better results you will get, do remember that film is static and attracts dust. Monochrome images tend to be slightly worse for this effect due to the digital ice software no being able to distinguish as well as with colour images. Most of colour images come our without any noticeable marks, monochrome usually come of good too. We can attempt to remove this using our Photo Restore Service.

  7. You only need to send us the actual APS film itself, please do not send photo prints or boxes as they may not be returned.

  8. We scan the entire film and can not select certain images to be scanned.
