Digital Photography

We photograph all records that are found, every page that has any mark or date on it will be photographed. Each digital photograph is delivered in JPEG Format and has a 4:3 ratio at 16M fine Macro, which equals 4608 X 3456 dpi, minimum. This equals a storage need of 4 - 7 MB per digital photograph. All of our equipment uses low-light metering and enhancement as well as state of the art stabilization correction computer technology for advanced photo and record quality.

We also offer digital photography in RAW format, as compared to the above RAW images are the best available. They hold true as every dpi is recorded and there is no long term loss to the image, whereas there is a very small loss to all other types of digital format recording. The storage need for each RAW digital photograph is 24MB - 28MB, plan your storage needs if considering ordering in RAW format, there is an additional cost to RAW formatted images. ($5.00 per up to 500 images and so on, example: A order of a 200 page Pension would cost an additional $5.00 to be digitized, a regimental book order of 1200 pages would cost an additional $15.00).
