Using Your DigitaLIZA 35mm Film Scanning Mask on Canon 5600F

13

The Canon 5600F scanner has a small area of light source that only allows you to scan about 6 frames. Are you having a hard time aligning your Digitaliza on the Canon 5600F? If found a way to deal with this.

First, you need to know the dimension of area of the light source. After a few tries, I got the best dimension. I used a thick cardboard and cut it into a rectangular shape. The most important dimension is the width of the cardboard, which is 78mm. The length is not as important so you can make it short or long, it’s up to you. Another important thing to remember is to cut the cardboard straight to make sure that you scan the pictures in a straight line. Place the cardboard at the left corner and place the DigitaLIZA right beside it. Now you have no problems scanning with sprockets!

Just a little note, the DigitaLIZA scanning area is 33mm in width, but using the Scangear with 5600F, the maximum scanning area is only 31.2mm in width. Here are a few photos I scanned:

    @nman-cabezas it's difficult to get the real colors of film from flat bed scanning, each brand have their own setting, even you send to different lab, they will give you different result. I had compared my scanning with lab scan, actually not much different on colors, just canon scan is more to yellow. maybe this could help.

    Hey! I recently bought a digitaLIZA 35mm. I tried to use it with my Canon 5600F but it doesn´t work. I got an error message saying that it cannot scan for few reasons. I guess because digitaLIZA it´s thicker that the one provided with the scanner. How did you manage to get it work? Thanks!

    @marie-aline which mode you use? advance mode? the thicker digitaLIZA is not a problem.

    Kim Keighran, you need to tick the manual exposure first before crop together with the sprocket hole.
