Scanning Panoramas with the Lomography Film Scanner


Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the Lomography Film Scanner Kickstarter project - there's still time for you to take part. Did you know it can also scan panoramic photos? Here we've prepared some examples of Spinner 360° photos scanned using the Lomography Film Scanner!

These scans of the Spinner 360° photos have been scanned using the Smartphone Film Scanner and then stitched together by us manually. As a part of the project, we’re currently working on an integrated App for iPhone and Android that will automatically stitch those panoramic photos for you. Scanning 35mm panoramas has never been as fast or easy as this!

A Closer Look At Prints

The Scans you can get with your Lomography Smartphone Scanner are even good enough quality to print; so you can bring those long lost negatives back to life, make some beautiful looking prints and start sharing them the analog way too!

The prints shown in the photo above were scanned using the Smartphone Scanner and Samsung Galaxy S2. The print sizes are 9cm x 13.5cm (3.5 in x 5.3 in), 10cm x 15cm (3.9 in x 5.9 inc) and 12cm x 17.5cm (4.7 in x 6.9 in). So the scanner is perfectly capable of creating prints for these sizes at least.Smartphones with better camera resolution will create photos of even higher resolution!

For more information, or if you want to help support the project and get your hands on your own Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner, head over to our Kickstarter page.

    Hi there! This looks great, I've contributed to the Kickstarter project, looking forward to it. Just wondering if in the App you'll be able to lock the exposure for all the frames taken per panoramic image. In the images above it looks like the exposures are different for some frames of each stitched image.
