Product Details

Speed up capture time and make digital copies of 35mm film with the Pro Film Carrier 35!

Negative Supply exists to create tools for film photographers around the world that want to spend more time photographing and less time scanning. Their products allow you to digitize negatives using your digital camera and a macro lens in as little as 5 minutes (or less) with tools you may already have. 

The Negative Supply Pro Film Carrier 35 is the most advanced 35mm film scanning carrier on the market, capable of scanning all 35mm formats including half frame, full frame (standard 35mm), and panoramic sizes in a single capture while maximizing film flatness. Part of the next generation of Negative Supply tools, the Pro Film Carrier 35 is replacing the Film Carrier MK1 and introduces many upgrades that have been requested by users since the inception of the company.

 

Key Features:

  • Scans all 35mm formats ranging from half frame up to panoramic frames from cameras such as the Hasselblad X-Pan or Panon Widelux in a single capture with included custom masks
  • User calibration of film gate to keep film from drifting in the scanning area during film transport
  • Tighter, flatter and smoother film advancement with an updated transport mechanism utilizing more efficient rollers and a refined smooth-running bearing
  • Solid machined aluminum frame for durability and professional use
  • The removable internal “cassette” can be swapped out for others to expand its usage in the future (full-border scans and more!)
  • Modular design with replaceable internal cassette for future updates and accessories
  • Works with existing Pro products such as the 5x7 Light source and Pro Mount MK2 with an updated adapter plate that will still retain the mounting point for the anti-static dust brush

 

 

Recommended Accessories:

Light Source/LED Panel

The light source is one of the most important things when creating a camera scanning setup. Consistent light creates evenly lit images, and full spectrum light allows for great color correction. Chances are, if your light source isn’t high CRI or has dips in the spectrum, your colors will be very hard to correct. There are many light panel options out there, but the very best offer consistent, full spectrum light with a brightness high enough to capture images at moderate shutter speeds. 


Camera Stand

For great scans, you'll need to mount your camera to a sturdy support. The Negative Supply Riser line offers several camera stands of different sizes to best fit your camera weight and film format, and feature lead-screw height adjustment for quickly and easily raising and lowering the camera. Because of this adjustment option, it is impossible for your camera to “fall” or “descend uncontrollably” into your workpiece.


DSLR/Mirrorless scanning is relatively new to film, but it gives added speed, convenience, and precision for capturing frames in full detail. Modern cameras with high resolution also capture slide film with better reproduction quality and color due to CMOS sensor technology. Scanning film with a digital camera is truly the future digitization. 

“After having scanned all our film for over a decade using a professional Fuji Frontier minilab scanner (essentially a Camera Scanner), Epson v750 flatbed and various others, camera scanning is finally emerging as a premium workflow solution for scanning your own work in all formats. The Negative Supply products solve many of the initial struggles of camera scanning. It is now fast and reliable with potentially higher resolution in a much smaller package and simply more efficient in nearly every way.” - Brandon Wright Creator & Co-Founder of CineStill Film


Camera & Lens

Camera Body

Just about any semi-modern interchangeable camera will work great for camera scanning. There are many mirrorless or DSLR options to choose from, with the most convenient offering tethered live view capture to your computer. The Canon T2i is probably the cheapest option out there with tethering and large lens selection, and new cameras like the Sony A7 series are now very affordable with great IQ. High end setups may even use the new full frame Panasonic mirrorless cameras with pixel stitching.

Macro Lens

For camera scanning, the one real requirement is that your lens focuses close enough to capture the entire frame, without having to digitally crop. For full frame cameras and capturing 35mm film, the term 1:1 designates a lens that will reproduce the 35mm frame exactly onto the full frame digital sensor. With crop bodies, 1:1 focus even closer. There are also options to use extension tubes for older macro lenses. We have had excellent results with an inexpensive Nikon 55mm macro from the film days, using a simple extension tube to get 1:1 on our full frame bodies. Higher end, yet affordable options include the excellent Sigma 70mm ART Macro. The Outside of reproduction factor (1:1), also look out for lenses that are sharp, have good color reproduction, limit internal reflections (modern coatings), and have very little vignetting. Finally, it’s generally best to use your lens stopped down 2-3 from wide open, as this gives a good combination between depth of field and brightness.


Software for Negative Conversion

There are a few plugins and standalone programs for converting negatives into positives. Some older and some newer, all of them try to harness the color science based in darkroom paper to various degrees. Many professional scanners have used LaserSoft applications or some proprietary/built-in software to emulate darkroom printing. After all, even a professional lab scanner is simply a digital camera and a light source. The applications below do the same thing for converting negatives captured with you digital camera rather than a digital camera built into a scanner. We recommend choosing the one that best suits your workflow.
