Essential Film Holder

for Camera Scanning




Latest update – October 2020



A friendly note before you buy...



It might take us a little while...


Over the last month, the number of orders received has increased dramatically.


And this huge success means shipments may not happen just as promptly as we’d all like.



We have a target of dispatching all orders within 15 working days, and under normal circumstances, that’s what we have been achieving.


Following a number of highly positive reviews in the press, on-line and on YouTube, the number of orders received in the last month has been almost 3 times the expected!


On the one hand, that’s brilliant for all of us. The EFH is clearly gaining in popularity!!


On the other, it means that we’re likely to take a little while longer to dispatch orders.



Currently, we are achieving around 20-22 working days from your order to dispatch.



Please note that these are working days, not calendar days.



The EFH project is still our fun ‘lockdown project’ and that means that we need just a little bit of down time too.



Please be patient – I guarantee you that we are working efficiently and as diligently as we are able and that your EFH unit, additional masks and accessories will be dispatched as soon as possible.



The situation IS changing, almost day-by-day, however I want to be entirely up-front, open and honest about the likely delivery timescales of your EFH.





Please continue to purchase ONLY if you’re OK with above – thank you.

Why does it still take Sooo long?

We know you are keen to get your hands on your Essential Film Holder. We understand that.


Some buyers still have a rather unrealistic “AmazonPrime” expectation of next day delivery.

I’m really sorry, but that’s just not going to happen!


Each film holder is custom assembled and film-tested in-house - and I mean literally in our house, so please bear with us, we want everything to be as perfect for you as it is for every single buyer.


After, say, 15 working days after ordering, please feel free to make contact for an estimated dispatch date.

However, if you chase me 24 hours after purchasing, there’s very little I can do to speed the process – sorry!


Can I expedite the shipping for my delivery?

Sure, but note that paying for a fast courier does not imply we’ll be ready to ship it any faster than we would for everyone else.


Contact me and I will give you a price for expedited delivery using a premium courier service.


As a guide a 2-day FedEx to the USA or Canada is around £133. A 24-hour DHL express is £280.

Within the UK a guaranteed 2-day service with ParcelForce would be £39.


(Each location requires a different charge, so these are just examples, not commitments.)



Can I cancel my order after purchasing?

Having read the above, we hope you don’t feel the need to cancel, and that the short wait will be worth it.


However, if the wait becomes too long for you, then yes, of course, as with any “distance purchase”, you have the right to cancel and get a full refund.


Please note that if we’ve shipped your EFH, then you will need to send back your unopened parcel before we issue a refund.






Additional masks for 35mm slides, XPAN wide format, 35mm Sprockets and 120 Borders can be added after you complete your main EFH purchase.
