DIGITAL GEM is a technology developed by Applied Science Fiction that reduces film grain from a scanned image. GEM stands for Grain Equalization & Management. It is able to analyze film's grain pattern and then reduce or remove film graininess without harming the colours, sharpness, and detail content of the image. This technology is based on a complex set of algorithms and works after the scanning process.

Film grain in photographic film is the result of silver halide crystals in the film emulsion surface. All photographic film has grain, and different film speeds have different grain sizes. The faster the film speed the larger and more noticeable the grain. When film is scanned the film grain does appear in the resulting digital image. By using GEM processing this unattractive grain pattern, or graininess, can be reduced and in some cases it is eliminated altogether. This processing option will make an image taken on a film camera look more like one taken on a digital camera.




Film speed is rated in ISO numbers.

The lower the number the less sensitive the film is to light.

The higher the number the more sensitive the film is to light.
  • Slow Speed Films ISO 25 to 100 give very sharp fine grain results. Ideal for enlargements.
  • Medium Speed Film ISO 200 to 400 are good all round films suitable for most subjects.
  • Fast Speed Film ISO 800 to 3200 are used for hand held photography in low light or action pictures. Tend to be grainy with less saturated colours and not suitable for big enlargements.
