Scanning Negatives and Slides

Scanning film produces superior results that can be achieved from scanning a print of the same image. There are several advantages to scanning negatives and slides:

  • Film (a negative or slide) is the original image, whereas a print is a second-generation copy.

  • Film provides a greater dynamic range (contrast) than is provided by prints.

  • When the photograph is printed, some tonal range and color information are lost or modified. The original information can't be recovered from a print. However, the original film will still contain the information and yield more detail in a film scan.
