Kodak launched a new project this week aimed at revealing the older, and hence older, camera films and negatives, with the help of objects that everyone already has at their disposal these days: the smartphone.
The Kodak Mobile Film Scanner wants to make anyone can reveal the photos from decades ago and post them on social networks. With no big professional gadgets, dark rooms, and red lamps, the device is made of cardboard and offers a quick and homely way to remember the defining moments of childhood or youth of relatives.
To use it, you need to add two batteries for an internal illumination to be activated, allowing negative films to be illuminated in real colors and close to those captured by the camera and also by the film itself. It is important to remember that the accessory has support for 35mm negatives and 35mm slides.
Placing the smartphone on top of the Mobile Film Scanner, an aperture allows the device’s camera to be adjusted to exactly the right angle to capture the negative image.
Once the photo is taken, then the official accessory application allows the user to adjust and correct photo details such as contrast, color, temperature, brightness, dimension and can add stickers and text and other possibilities if necessary.
Kodak Mobile Film Scanner is available in the United States for $ 39.
