While I transitioned to digital capture in 2003, digital imaging has been a part of my workflow since 1999. All of my E-6 and C-41 35mm film is digitally archived, so I understand the importance of preserving your physical originals and having access to a file that is a faithful digital representation.
I scan film at 2,900 DPI and as 36-bit (12-bit color Red, Green, and Blue color channels) TIFF files using a dedicated Nikon film scanner with Digital ICE to remove dust and scratches. I handle film with gloved hands, I do not use a bulk loader, and no chemicals ever touch your originals. Turn-around time for most projects 1(00 slides or less) is about one week.
