The Pictor Pro offers overscan for regular 8 and super8 films in 2.7K resolution. Because it profits from the same high-quality exposure solution as its bigger family member, the HDS+ and Pictor Pro film scanner, both reversal and negative film stock can be digitized in high quality!

restoration using wetgate

To ensure best results when digitizing your film, we use Wetgate scanning. Using this advanced technique, even a damaged film can be restored to a sharp and beautiful end product.

By cleverly treating scratches or vertical lines with fluid, almost any damage can be repaired or optimized. This technique was previously only available for large format film.

Small format film can now also be digitized professionally, thanks to our smart Wetgate solution.

Our Wetgate technique for the Filmfabriek HDS+ Scanner is very simple and cost-effective. For both archives and individuals, who strive for the highest quality, this is a must-have!
