Hi there,

 

To save me hours of googling, can someone recommend a relatively cheap scan service within EU in 2K. I noticed some labs use a Spirit Datacine (which AFAIK is not true 2K)....I'd prefer some true 2K scan like Arriscan.

 

thanks

 

Edgar

Hi,

 

I know only about FILMLAB.HU in Budapest, which costs 180 EUR (exc. VAT) for 2K DPX scan on Scanity for 1 roll of 35mm 4 perf (122m)

 

For the same service Listofilm in Vienna charges 450 €.

Synchorfilm charged 120 €, but they are now closed.

There is some proper and affordable scanning done in Moscow -  Cinelab Digital and Cinelex have Arriscans, Mosfilm also has one plus a Northlight and telecines. You pay as low as 50-70 euros for a 122m roll of S16 in Russia, and that's for 2K 16 bit scan. HD telecine is 20 euros a roll, SD costs close to nothing.

Great pricing, only if there won't be any import duty/tax from Russia to E.U.

I don't think there will be import taxes if the material has been properly exported for "further processing" outside European customs zone. When the material comes back, you'll only need to pay your local VAT for the service.
