smartphone film scanner
- the story
Smart phones have made photography easier and more accessible than ever before--but they've also left generations of photographic memories lingering in boxes and closets. But with this tool, anyone can easily welcome those favorite pictures into the 21st century.
Simply place your phone into the grip mount, and spool your developed, 35mm film through the scanner. A built-in light illuminates each frame, allowing you convert the image to digital simply by using the phone to take a picture of it. Now those pictures can be saved or shared like any other digital snapshot. A free app lets you edit the images, convert negatives to positives, and stitch several image frames into a panorama. You can even convert a series of stills into a stop-motion video! A great way to preserve family photos, or as a tool for photographers who prefer working with film. Made in China.
