Scan Film with your Digital Camera

Scanning film with a digital camera is easy. Essentially, you take a picture of the film with the camera and a close-focusing lens. The result is a digital file with the flexibility of modern digital sensors. The digital negative is then converted to a positive using FilmLab software with no loss of detail or quality. VALOI products are completely modular, so you will always find the right solution for your needs.
