Scanning


After your film has been developed, the best way to get your images is by scanning them yourself using a backlit scanner. Obviously you could ask a photo lab to scan your shots for you but then you won't have any control over how they turn out. Plus, scanning your own negatives is the most cost-effective method in the long-term.

One of the easiest ways to scan your negatives is by using either DigitaLIZA 35mm, DigitaLIZA 110 or DigitaLIZA 120 scanning masks with your backlit scanner. Most negative scanning masks cover up the sprocket holes on the edge of your 35mm film, but the DigitaLIZA allows you to scan the whole width of your films!
