35mm film

We are celebrating having reached 5000 digitized photographs from 35mm film. We have been working on digitizing this format since March 2005, and have already digitized the majority of preserved 35mm films by Josef Jindřich Šechtl. We plan to prepare an exhibition in our museum in 2007, of Josef Šechtl's photographs, taken using vintage Leica I and II cameras, from the 1920s to the 1950s.

However, our project of digitizing our archive is not complete yet. We still need to process a number of glass plate negatives of sizes greater than 18×24cm, and we have so far only experimented with digitizing medium and large format films. Currently the digitized archive consists of: 7500 digitized glass plate negatives dating from 1869 to 1950s; 267 films (6×6 or 6×9 cm) from 1950s to 1990s; 750 photographic prints dated from 1866 to 1950s; 300 hand-colored slides dating from 1900s to 1930s; and more. Overall, as of 25th May 2006, it contains 13635 photographs, with 334 new photos added to the archive since our last update.

We finally found problem causing certain version of Microsoft Internet Explorer to stop displaying images after visitng certain parts of our digital archive. The problem was caused by bug in Internet Explorer in reading EXIF data. As an workaround we removed all EXIF data from images on our webpages so the bug should no longer reproduce.
