Niagara Custom Lab is pleased to offer scanning services for all small gauge films processed at the lab, as well as existing prints and negatives; 16mm, S8mm, 8mm & 9.5mm.


A 2k one-light scan outputted at 8-bit to the file type of your choice (Apple ProRes, DNxHD, etc.), this service is perfect for the filmmaker prepared to perform her own timing and colour grading. Available in edge-to-edge or masked scans, the digital workprint provides a flexible, information-heavy file. Our standard output is Apple ProRes 422.

Cost per 100′: 46.00
Cost per cartridge: 23.00

No fees!


When you wish to archive your holdings with precision, we can offer a best-light, archival-quality scan that coaxes the best possible image out of your film. Includes optical or magnetic sound. Outputs at 10-bit or higher to all major archival file types (TIFF, OpenEXR, DPX, DCP).


All digital transfer orders require an empty or backed-up storage device of adequate size (roughly 18GB per 100′). Your drives must be formatted for ExFAT or a Mac.

Otherwise, we can upload your files to Google Drive for $10/100ft. A maximum of 300ft can be uploaded to Google Drive.

Niagara Custom Lab is not responsible for lost data or delayed orders due to file delivery.
