Scanning film in good quality can be a challenge: Good scanners are very expensive and scarce. When I re-entered analog photography, scanning films quickly and in great quality was key for me. The method described in this article involves no specialty scanning or repro equipment. Some people may actually own everything that’s needed already. I have digitized more than 200 films with this method and am quite stunned at the results I get!
It all started with a Canon A1 I picked up from my dealer for $20 a few years ago. And – I almost don’t dare to say – ended trying out 85 different analog cameras, shooting a few films with each of them! I may have suffered a severe case of GAS (gear acquisition syndrome), but hey, I enjoyed every moment of my journey!
