Slide, Negatives and Photos scanning:

We offer Slide scanning, Negative scanning, photograph scanning and digital restoration. Our slide scanning and negative scanning standard resolution is 4000 dpi saved as jpeg images to view on your tv or computer and to share. These images display well on most televisions including 4k.

Cine and Video digitising:

Our Standard 8mm and Super 8mm cine film digitising service delivers 1080p resolution and can be delivered to you on DVD, usb stick or over the internet on a secure ‘YouTube’ page. We do go as high as 4k but this service has a slower turnaround and the digital files are very large, these are usually supplied on a large usb stick or hard drive. We apply a straightforward pricing structure for our cine work and you are always welcome to call us to discuss your project.

With VHS, Betamax, Hi-8 and digital 8 video we offer capture, editing and transfer to DVD, blu-ray and MP4 conversions for viewing on your TVs and computers.

Other services:

Our website building service is based on using WordPress. This is a stable platform with many plugins that can be utilised to expand and publicise your business. Our pricing starts at £120 for a basic set up and two custom pages. We also offer training in using WordPress.

At Saturn Films 1969 we offer training days in photo digitising using our range of equipment and software but targeted for you. We also offer Wedding photography but specialise in smaller weddings with under thirty people and we do portrait photography too.

Our website:

Our site has been rebuilt recently so many of the old blog pages have been consigned to history. Most are still available on our Facebook page.

Privacy and GDPR:

As many of our customers know Saturn Films 1969 do not do remarketing or data capture save for getting your e-mail address to let you know we have received your project, how we are getting on, your bill, and final communications.We occasionally use Google Adwords to advertise and they have their own GDPR compliance policy.

When you perform a bank transfer it is with your bank and we do not capture any data, save for the date, who it is from and the sum transferred to us.

We do keep your e-mail address on record, this is on Google Mail and archived on our secure backup drives. We do keep copies of your project while we can so that you can always request a copy (we do charge for provision of copies when we can provide them –  we cannot guarantee that this service will be available though). We also provide a discount to returning customers so the information is used by us in this context.

If you wish us to delete any personal data we hold about you, (this includes: Name, address and e-mail address) we will gladly do so. We do need to keep a written record of transactions for HMRC purposes.

We do have a Facebook page which you are welcome to like and follow but please be aware that Facebook have their own GDPR compliance policies.

As for Trust pilot and other feedback platforms we are sceptical about the ‘True’ feedback and have seen sites where the feedback appears to be too good to be true – so we no longer not use them. We have our own feedback page which is occasionally updated with genuine customer comments – we do not obsess on these, most of our work is from returning customers so “nuff said”.

Personally I have reservations about Facebook and Google data capture and sharing. There appears to be a lack of clarity on how Facebbook and Google are really meeting compliance law. I think that Paul Merson has the right idea – no phone, no e-mail and so on ……. Respect for one of the most under appreciated intellectuals of our time!
