    Only one winner! I'm picking up my re-scans on Friday, so will post then..
  • Craig Tulloch 4y

    I'm really blown away by it. The difference is amazing.
  • GTZ* 4y

    Ok... so next time I'll come to visit, I'll bring a bag full of negs to scan :-)
  • Mike Oddhayward 4y

    Yay! Post some more? This one definitely has more vignette and punchier colours :)

    beside the colours which are better here on the vault scan - but its probably a matter of taste - the vault scan has much better highlights, but the colourstream scan is better in the details of the brick wall accepting burned out highlights.

    it's a bit like scylla and charybdis...

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
  • Mike Oddhayward 4y

    Just to be clear here - it's really a Fuji scanner (Vault/ASDA/etc) vs the Agfa scanner (Colourstream). And yes I totally agree that on some shots the Agfa gives a 'better' result :)

    Cool picture of a cool car. How much did The Vault charge to rescan them?
  • Craig Tulloch 4y

  • Jason Lupi 4y

    wow thats a lot for just scanning! Interesting. Colourstream offer a better deal, and therefore are more appealing, but I too like the Vaults scans.
  • Mike Oddhayward 4y

    It's always more to scan the negs once they've been chopped up.

    Go to ASDA - they have the same machine as the vault and they are very cheap.
  • Craig Tulloch 4y

    He scanned while I watched and it wasn't easy, as Mike said, once the negative has been cut it becomes very difficult. He stayed late to finish it while I waited. I was very impressed by the serviceI got. They may have bagged a new customer.
  • Mike Oddhayward 4y

    I thought the vault would 'match any price' nowadays?
  • Craig Tulloch 4y

    Within reason Mike, I don't think they factored Asda into the equation.
  • Mike Oddhayward 4y

    Oh if only they would! :D
  • Dade Freeman 4y

    nice work on this shot :)

    Hey absolutely great idea, i love to see the comparison side by side, working at Colourstream it is apparent that there is contestion in the x-pro community where to get your film scanned, but personally i don't shoot xpro and get it scanned at Colourstream because the Vault's scanner just offers a wider spectrum of colours, rather than the mono-tonal results of Colourstream's AGFA d-lab, don't get me wrong, its a fantastic lab for colour neg with amazing exposure correction etc.. but the vault has it on x-pro scans.

    Thanks for posting this comparison Craig. I've only ever had my xpro negatives scanned at Colourstream and they did have that brownish quality to them that is in evidence here. I do actually kind of like that in some images but I'm curious to see how they would look rescanned at The Vault.
  • Nick Eastham 4y

    I've also noticed the difference. As Joshua says is seems to be down to the scanner. Colourstream uses an Agfa and The Vault uses the Fujifilm SP2000. Jessops also uses a Fujifilm scanner, an SP3000 I think, I used to get my scans done there if I wanted the bright colourful pics rather than the Vault because they were a lot cheaper. Sadly, since they revamped the shop (on Queens Road) they won't do cross processsing any more, and so I don't get the scans done there either. Sometimes the Colourstream tones suit the pictures, sometimes I want the bright colours. Which lab I use depends on the pictures I've taken.
