This film holder is not designed for this Lightbox, but because APS film is smaller than 35mm film, I knew I could just set it on top of the opening and make it work. For those who are considering camera scanning, two of the most important ingredients to success (aside from getting the right camera, lens, and light) are:

 

  1. Setting up a rig where the media handling is fast and consistent. This helps minimize your post-processing and ensures your workflow is profitable.
  2. Masking all light except for the light coming through the negative or slide. This includes stray light from the sides of the film as well as ambient light in the room. Minimizing that stray light can significantly improve the results of your camera scanning.

Hope that helps!
