Valoi Gear Guide

When you use our products to scan, we want your results to be of the highest quality with the fewest number of problems using the least amount of money. This guide will help you find a setup that works for your needs and budget. To get you started you will need a few essential items in addition to a VALOI Holder: A digital camera (or a phone) with a close-focusing lens, a light source, and, preferably, a copy stand. 

Always keep in mind that a scanning system is only as good as its weakest part - therefore it is important to consider if changing one part of it will actually improve the quality without also upgrading another part. For example, many people use good cameras but fail to recognize the importance of a good lens. 

Feel free to click through the categories and look at the price-ranges that work for you. If you run into problems you are struggling to make up your mind, please message us on Instagram or send us an email at for some personal help.

Keep in mind that the prices listed are usually referring to the used market cost on the European market in 2021. When buying used we always recommend you buy from a proper store, such as our partner Kamerastore (where you can also buy everything VALOI), MPB or KEH instead of for example eBay.
