pixl-latr – launches on Kickstarter!!

I’ve been working toward the launch of pixl-latr for the last 5 or 6 years of my life – I started on this project before I even started 35mmc, which seems ridiculous now I come to think of it, but there we go… it’s now live on Kickstarter here

If you’ve not seen or heard me waffling on about pixl-latr on social media or on the Sunny 16 Podcast, the basic idea is that pixl-latr is a low cost yet effective solution for digitising black & white or colour negatives and transparencies.

If you’ve ever tried to digitise a negative or transparency with a digital camera, you’ll know that two of biggest headaches are keeping the film in place and flat; and backlighting it in a uniform manner – these are the problems I set out to solve.

pixl-latr effectively solves these two issues for 35mm, 120 (up to 6×12) and 4×5 film, it does this with just a few simple parts and on Kickstarter is only £32 (£40-45 rrp post Kickstarter).

You can find out loads more – and more importantly back the project – on the Kickstarter page here

    Notice of the pixl-latr prompted me to start posting on my film photo/classic camera blog again; I’ve cobbling together my own DIY solution, without success. This looks great so I gave it a mention on my first post on ‘grumpytykepix’ for years. September availability (sorry missed this before writing post) would suit me fine.

    Great to see this on Kickstarter. I’ve been doing something similar, albeit with far less elegance and considerable amounts of pfaff! Kickstarter backed 🙂
