Use your PictoScanner to make high end DSLR scan

We have been asked, by several customers, if we have any experience using the PictoScanner as a backlight and a DSLR camera as scanner.

The answer is yes, this is an easy and fast way to achieve a high end scan. Below is a setup that we find works really well.

The camera in this example is a Sony alpha 7r ii with a Sigma adapter, the lens is a Canon Macro lens EF 100 mm.

With ISO 100, PictoScanner provides light to give you aperture 4.5 and shutter speed 60.


PictoScanner is used as backlight. The camera is connected to the computer and the images are taken directly into my raw converter Capture One. 

By using the remote shutter you avoid shaking the camera.

Now the image must be changed from negative to positive.
Pull the Level curve to open and close vice versa, as shown in the picture below.
Now your picture is positive.

You can copy the adjustment and make it apply to all scanned images at once.


With this setup scan you get a picture that is 7832 x 5304 pixels and very sharp.

From a need to an idea

It was the mid 80's, when I started working as a photographer. These were the days of analog cameras, where getting my films processed was a routinely part of the job. I made my way into the scenes of galleries and museums, working as a high-end photographer for museum publications, while also working on my own projects and ideas on the side, publishing a numerous amount of photo books covering everything from travelling to faraway destinations, to discovering the huge, humbling creations of the local shipyard. Being curious about the world around me, far as well as near, was always a part of my way of working and so as the millennium came and the digitalisation suddenly dominated my field, I had to realise that this was a revolution that would affect everyone involved with photography. A new era had begun, and I was, along with every other photographer, forced to leave my analog camera behind and befriend myself with the world of digital cameras, scanners and computer programs.

In 2012 when my mother passed away, I found myself suddenly left with countless boxes of films that had belonged to her. I wanted to share this with my family, so I started the long process of digitalising all of these photos containing memories of the life of my mother and my own childhood. 

I realised that I was not the only one in this situation. So many people out there are sitting with moments and memories caught with an analog camera, almost forgotten, because of the difficulties found in processing films these days. This was an unbearable thought to me, and so I started working on the PictoScanner. The idea was to create a device, that allows people to access films in an easy manner, so new life could be brought to these old photos. As I had often been impressed by the quality of the little cameras in smartphones, I was curious to see if this could be of any use in creating my new mini scanner. When the PictoScanner was finished, I was truly amazed with the well working result and quality of the photos. I hope that the PictoScanner will be a helpful device for people to easily access films and revisit memories.

Right now, there may be problems with sharpness or brightness for some iPhones.
