What is camera scanning?

Scanning at home can be quick and easy by using your digital camera and a macro lens to make a high quality digital reproduction of your film.

After using a homemade contraption of anti-newton glass, a Kaiser light box, and a custom made wooden thingamabob for holding it all, I thought "there has to be a better way." Turns out that there is: The VALOI negative carrier, transport mechanism and little light source have made the entire camera scanning process much quicker and much less fiddly...

Benefits of camera scanning

By taking a picture of your film using a digital camera in controlled conditions using a backlight, you can get a cleaner and sharper image than with a traditional scanner in a fraction of the time.

Get more out of your film - enjoy film more by spending less time scanning.

Our Goals

Picture: A. Båsmo, Scanned on VALOI

We want to make shooting film more accessible by making it cheaper, easier and better. Creating great products that support analogue photography and instructional content that teaches a new generation of analogue photographers, is part of our core.

Our scanning tools were designed to be modular, efficient, long-lasting and provide excellent results, and we invite you to learn about home scanning from us.  

“Valoi” is a Finnish word meaning light and creation - a nod to our Nordic background and to the creativity of analogue photography.

Faster, easier, better

VALOI 360 is a film holder system for all analog photographers, with great tools available for all price-levels.

The device is compatible with most of the films available on the market - from  35mm to 6x9 medium format, while keeping your film safe from damage. The design is modular and allows you to start small and build it out as you expand your knowledge.  

All you need to get your film scanned is a light source and a digital camera. 

The great design and durability is included in the price.
