Scan Film with your Digital Camera

  1. Place the camera on a sturdy tripod or stand

  2. Take a picture of the film in the VALOI holder

  3. Open the file in dedicated negative conversion software like Negative Lab Pro or Filmlab and make your adjustments before saving

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.
