Let us take a trip down memory lane -- back to the days when novelty items such as cameras were given out like candy for free. Ah, nostalgia.
Since I got into analogue photography, I´ve only developed one roll in the lab: they took one day to develop and scan it, and then I found out they hadn’t scanned the sprocket holes… I really needed a scanner and knowledge on processing/developing!!
We all need to somehow scan our photos. This will be a comprehensive guide to scanning - From scanners for every budget to having alternatives to traditional scanning.
Scanning our own film or photos is a blessing! We can save time, money, scan the way we want to and store the files in our computer!
Today a scanner with transparency unit should be part of a Lomographer's standard equipment like the Lomo LC-A and a fridge full of films is.
For anyone who’s bought a Spinner 360 or Sprocket Rocket, figuring out how to scan sprockets can take a lot of trial and error...which is why I wrote this guide.
If you have a scanner with a backlight then you should be able to use the DigitaLiza scanning mask to scan sprockets - examples are the V330 and V500 models. To get a correct exposure though you'll need to tweak the EPSON Scan software. Read on to find out how.
The DigitaLIZA makes it easy to scan uncommon frame sizes and to include the sprocket holes, but lining it up on the scanner bed can be tricky. This easy tipster shows you how to get good alignment every time.
Did you ask why your scanner gives some strange mistakes when you put on the Digitaliza? This is my experience!
Do you want to scan your negatives but don't own a flatbed scanner? Do you have an ordinary scanner and a tablet? Look no more, I have a solution for you.

Personally I am a huge fan of redscaling. It allows you to get some color in your photos, even on the grayest of days. But what if you just want to add the redscale effect to just some of your photos rather than shooting an entire roll this way? Easy enough: use a red filter! And while you're at it, why not throw in some other colors as well?! Read on to find out how you can turn your LC-A+ in to a rainbow camera!

Thinking of buying an underwater case for your beloved Fisheye? Read on for my review of the Submarine Case.
Twenty times bigger than the original, the Holy Holga is almost as tall as person and is fully-functional! The camera is so big that one has to step inside to load it with photo paper and use a two-horse trailer and pick-up truck to move it around. This camera might just be the exact opposite of the Diana Baby 110!
You may think nature photography is only for those who live in spactacular surroundings and sunny climates, or can afford to travel there. Think again! Anyone can take gorgeous nature pictures, no matter where they live
