Lomography z100scan overview

  • 1Description

The Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner is a compact and portable device used to create digital scans of 35mm film with a smartphone. The scanner features a AA battery-powered backlight for illuminating the film and the specially-designed holder positions the phone correctly for capturing images of the recorded film area. Using the free Lomoscanner app, image files will be automatically converted to positive images (if scanning negative film), panoramic frames can be automatically stitched together, and 35mm movie film will be automatically animated together. The app also supports direct sharing of the edited files to social networks or via other methods of sharing.

Film Scanner Design
The scanner features a AA battery-powered direct light panel that provides sufficient illumination for making close-up images of individual 35mm film frames. Any type of 35mm film is supported (negative or transparency, black and white or color), however make sure to keep the film in strips as opposed to mounted slides. The film is inserted into the bottom of the film scanner and a film advance knob is used to properly position film. The smartphone rests on top of the scanner and is held in place via clamps. These clamps also properly position the smartphone in the proper orientation so it is centered and directly above the light source.
Lomoscanner App
The free Lomoscanner app, which is available for iOS and Android operating systems, enables you to edit and process the direct images made from the Smartphone Film Scanner. Negative film can be automatically converted to positives and non-standard image frames can be automatically combined: panoramic images can be stitched together and movies can be automatically animated into a single clip. The app also allows instant sharing of scanned images via email or to social networks.
Smart Device Compatibility
The width of the phone should be greater than 1.85" / 47mm and if the phone has a lens at the center, it should be no wider than 3.7" / 94mm or if it has a lens at the corner, it should be no wider than 2.44" / 62mm. Additionally, the shutter release button of the camera should be accessible via the touchscreen as opposed to a side-mounted physical button.

    Lomography z100scan reviews

    Smartphone Film Scanner is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A cool toy, but they got it wrong The Lomo smartphone film scanner is a great concept, and for the most part, it works ok. It's fun, and I think that's the main thing. But there is one major design flaw: they got the orientation of the phone to the film wrong. The film travels through the backlight horizontally, but the phone camera lines up to the film vertically. If you really want to make full use of your camera sensor, you need to rotate the phone 90 degrees and then snap the picture. So, that's what I do. Instead of putting the phone in the cradle, I simply hold it in my hand at a 90 degree angle to the film and snap the photo that way. It's annoying but it works. Because of that major flaw, I don't think this scanner is worth sixty bucks. Maybe thirty would be a better price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product The product do what is meant to do: allow you to take a picture of your old film. The resolution and else depends on your camera and your patience on positioning the camera in the right place. It works if you want to digitalize in a primitive matter your old films.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from You Get Less than What You Pay For It's a great concept - just make a backlit screen on which to place your 35mm media and leave it up to the great optics and resolution of your smartphone to give you a great image of your 35mm slides and negatives. It almost works. Where it falls down is that to get anything close to a big enough image, the cellphone has to be placed too close to the backlit screen, so that the focus mechanism starts hunting, producing unsharp images. Also the sprocket holes are not masked out, and because the smartphone is so close, images are subject to barrel distortion. They should have added a close-up lens to help the smartphone optics and a mask for the sprocket holes as a cheap solution. Maybe the barrel distortion could be fixed in software. It's a nice try to get a cheap solution for scanning old media, but unfortunately I'm taking it back as it doesn't quite cut the mustard at that price - effectively several bits of cheap plastic with an LED backlit screen.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Cheap Alternative to Pro-Scanners Renders decent scans so from good contrasty negatives. The design is cheap, but it works once you have a good handle on it.
