I have recently purchased, with full rights, the 120 negs of my wedding. Can anyone recommend a company who will provide Hi-Res scans to disc? Preferably in tiff format, will also consider other formats.
I have posted this thread in the Digital Imaging and Film Cameras forums in the hope it will attract a better informed response from either.
Thanks in advance,

Thanks Keith, I'll take a look.
Any more guys, I like choice.
Hmmm... how much do you want to spend?
Hmmm... How long is a piece of string?
Like most people, I want to spend the lowest price that will return good results.
Wortha shot... x
I have heard good things about rkphotographic.co.uk from Photography Monthly. Have you thought about buying a scanner? It may be cheaper if you are scanning a lot. Also you can sell it on Ebay after. This way you should no lose too much money.
This may be of interest to you.
I tried one of the above with disappointing results in the colour department and opted for www.blueskyimages.co.uk who I am still using today for my medium format scans.Great results.
Ian (Camairish), which one disapointed you?
The company with which I was disappointed with results was R & K photographic - NOT rkphotographic as mentioned above - they are 2 different set ups.I sent some XPan transparencies down and found the colour in the scans to be noticeably different from the original slides. BlueSkyImages repeated the same scans and the results were perfect.Being British I foolishly didn't get back in touch with R & K which I probably should have done.It may have been my fault for not specifying exactly what I wanted but either way,I'm very happy with who I use now.
One thing that can happen to cause colour issues is that sometimes people look at scans supplied by scan houses in the wrong colour space or on uncalibrated monitors. As an example, scans may be scanned in Adobe RGB colour space, but people may have their colour space in PS set to SRGB. This can cause apparent colour issues that in reality can be rectified at a click of a mouse.
At Genie Imaging we can provide Hi-Res scans to disc.
