If you’ve been around for at least three decades or if you have inherited old family photos you may be looking for an easy way to look at old negatives or films and a way to easily extract these old photos. Films will degrade and deteriorate over time so if you have films or negatives to preserve now is a great time to start.
I recently discovered there is a new technology for this and it’s so exciting! They have created a film scanner which allows you to do just these things! Imagine a little viewer that allows you to insert your negative and instantly digitize those old photos on film negatives.
The Kodak Digital Film Scanner will convert your images from negative and slides to and SD card or through HDMI or USB cable.
The Kodak Scan Tool for PC and Mac allows you to scan the images from the negative directly to your computer.
If you have old reel to reel films there is also a film scanner made by Wolverine which allows you to convert your reel to reel films into digital format.
So dig out those old shoeboxes and get started on the next part of digitizing and preserving your old family films and photos!
