    One step too far maybe? Thats a bit too much digital for my liking. I like the wait and the scanning. This is just immitation of analogue in my eyes.

    Ohhh hang on I think I got it wrong. So you are actually filming negs? I though you were just filming through the scope, which you could surely do.

    @welland - Yes, the Smart Phone Holder allows you to film the negatives from your LomoKino rolls, not film through the LomoKinoScope - So it's no more digital than scanning your negatives; this is just an easy way to record your LomoKino rolls rather than having to scan the individual frames

    I think it's a game changer! It's easier than "stiching-up" the 144 frames on iMovie and the movies posted so far look really nice…

    Great idea. i wonder if you can make one of these to scan regular shots. You could then just use the screen capture tool in VLC to create stills(Hopefully at Hi Res). It would save hours doing regular scans and quite possibly save my sanity too.

    Cool because this was a tipster and now it's official!

    cool idea, but those movies don't look nearly as good as the other method.

    @bear1973 you could easily scan any other films with it, the only thing is the limitations in getting the correct curves/spec for your film. When you just invert in iMovie unless you have perfect exposures it's not quite the same. I thought the potential was great for away from home scanning when you can get films dev'd. Obviously if you use E6 then that is irrelevant. It was easy to attach though!

    What I would appreciate in addition is the chance for getting B/W slide film developed. Slide ( transparency ) film would be the only film, where this method makes sense. So recently, I shot a film role of B/W slide film ( B/W looks actually best on the lomokino, I think ) ... and didn't get developed anywhere ... at least not in Tokyo, but that's not such a small city, isn't it ;-))

    It would be huge sales point fo the lomokino, if lomography would sell B/W slide film in their shop and make sure, that people get it developed as well. And ... B/W slide film still exists. There still is a large stock of the famous and brilliant Agfa Scala or Fomapan produces the Fomapan R again:

    The perfect load for the lomokino ... if there would be a chance for getting it developed.

    Please,, Iphone app already was a mistake, do not go this far. I have your poster "Leave the Digital Grind Behind" on my wall but you do not seem like to apply the rule yourself.

    @arcadiobuendia - Thanks for the comment but the Smart Phone Holder is no more digital than scanning your negatives (something Lomographers have been doing for a long time). The Smart Phone Holder just offers a way to record the analogue movies you shoot with your LomoKino. Thanks!

    Unless E6 process,if not the scope & phone holder won't be of much use.
