Disc Camera Film

Looking for Kodak disc film scanning service near me?


Experience top-notch negative and slide scanning for your Kodak Disc film with our High-Quality Negative and Slide Scanning service. During the process, we employ a soft anti-static brush and, if necessary, compressed air to delicately clean your disc camera film negatives and slides. Our team handles your film with care, wearing cotton gloves to prevent damage or fingerprints.

Disc Film

To maintain the integrity of your disc film negatives, we advise against cutting them into individual images, as this may lead to damage and complicate dust or mark removal before scanning. The service also includes basic colour correction to restore your photos to their original vibrancy. It’s important to note that colour correction may not be feasible for under or overexposed negatives. Given that the Kodak Disc camera film format captures images of just 8 x 11 mm, it’s crucial to set realistic expectations regarding the scan quality for your Disc negatives.

Where can I get kodak disc film scanned?

We offer two main file formats: Tiff and Jpeg. Tiff files preserve all scan data without compression, ensuring high-quality but larger file sizes. On the other hand, Jpeg files, being more widely compatible, use compression, resulting in slightly lower quality.

Disc Camera Film to Digital – Alternative Formats

For those seeking alternative formats, we work with Adobe Photoshop in conjunction with our scanners and can accommodate various photo formats. If you have specific requirements, feel free to reach out to discuss them. Your digital files can be provided on a CD, DVD, or, if preferred, on a USB drive supplied by you.

What is kodak Disc Film?

Kodak Disc film was a type of photographic film format introduced by Eastman Kodak in 1982. It was designed to be user-friendly and convenient, especially for amateur photographers who wanted a simple and easy-to-use system. The film was housed in a flat, disc-shaped cartridge, and each cartridge contained 15 exposures.

Difference Between Disk Camera Film & 35mm Film

The disc film format was distinct from traditional 35mm film in that it used a rotating disc with film frames arranged in a circular pattern. The small, individual frames on the disc were 8 x 10.5 mm in size, much smaller than the frames on 35mm film. The disc format aimed to simplify the process of loading and unloading film, as well as eliminating the need to manually advance the film.

Disc Film Photos – How it was Marketed

While the disk camera film system was marketed as a convenient and user-friendly option, it faced challenges such as lower image quality compared to 35mm film and limited options for processing and printing. Due to these limitations and the advancement of other film formats, the Kodak Disc format gradually declined in popularity and was discontinued by Kodak in the late 1990s. Today, it is considered a part of photographic history, and finding facilities that can process or scan Kodak Disc film may be challenging.

Our Kodak Disc Film Scanning Service

It is commonly known that a Disc film is a cartridge film format, although we know that it is in fact much more than that.  These round discs contain our priceless memories from around the world, around our homes and around our hearts. All of this, saved in 15 tiny exposures positioned around the edge of the disc, which lies in a dusty box somewhere in our house.

Please note that in spite of homes being full of these discs, this rare film format was mostly a novelty. The Kodak disc film cameras were only made from 1982 to 1988, and Kodak stopped making disc film altogether in 1997. When disc film first appeared , more than 25 million disc film cameras were bought. Shortly after this, disc film did not prove hugely successful, as production labs were not utilising the necessary disc film negative scanner resulting in grainy and poor definition images. Digital cameras had not yet been invented.

For over 20 years supaphoto has been involved in kodak disc 4000 film developing and many other things kodak disc film scanning. 

How Big is each image? It was not one of the large formats and approximates to a small negative.

Approximately 8-by-10.5mm, which is smaller than your thumbnail, and less than half the size of an exposure on 110 film slides or negatives.

The size of them means that even when scanned by professionals, the images often seem grainy or blurry once all the tiny imperfections are enlarged on a screen or a print.

While pristine images with lots of detail cannot be attained, we will use our disc film scanner and film rescue services to convert your family memories, keeping them alive with DVDs or digital files on USB flash drives. Any one of your disc negatives could have captured the only surviving photos of family friends or a long-lost relative. Why pass up the chance to witness their warm smile again?

Disc Film Developing

There’s no quick and easy way of disc film developing, only dedicated and precise. To convert film negatives into digital images we use special trays to hold them steady, and scan each frame separately. 35mm film is the most common format seen, and while we’ve streamlined our scanning process for that type of format to save you money, any non-standard film can also be developed with more time to get the best scans possible.

Viewmaster? Unfortunately, it doesn’t work. A viewmaster uses two photos to get a 3D effect, whilst disc film photos are only 2D. Disc film is colour negative so there will be a colour shift in each image when viewed. To view whatever was photographed in good quality, you’ll need your disc film negatives scanned properly.

If you are not satisfied with the results, nor are we. That’s the Supaphoto way

For how long does this format survive?
Your film would normally have a life-span of at least 20-something years due to the fact that disc negatives were discontinued in 1997. The photos however, could be younger depending on when they were shot. Although Kodak phased out disc film cameras in the late ’80s, so it’s unlikely that most of these cameras have outlived the film.

Can I print from my disc photo film?

Anything can be printed from film, it just won’t be up to disc film scanning standards! Photos on disc negatives are so small and tiny that they can only hold a certain amount of detail, taking that into consideration, many of our customers opt for high-resolution scanning when searching for the best possible enlargements. At Supaphoto we know how to scan disc film negatives at a high quality for you to enjoy.
