The VALOI Advancer can upgrade your film scanning. Paired with the VALOI film holders, this will let you advance to the next frame using a knob, allowing you to scan quicker and more precisely. Additionally, it will raise your film off of the light source for more even illumination and give you leveling feet on each corner. The Advancer is made with sturdy steel construction. While best used with uncut rolls of film, it can also be used with strips down to 3 frames long.
The VALOI Film Holders are the perfect entry-point for trying out camera scanning and can be used on their own or with the VALOI Advancer.
The double S-curved and precision-engineered track keeps the film flat, and the matte surface and built-in internal angles keep reflections off your scan. The design makes it quick and easy to scan film by allowing you to push film through the holder instead of a traditional clam-shell design that requires constant opening and closing.
If you want to further diffuse any dust or imperfections on the surface of your film, want to use a tablet or phone screen as a light source or you are struggling with an uneven light source, the VALOI Diffuser will give you that little bit of extra diffusion that you need to get an even scan.
The Diffuser is precision-cut to fit exactly with the other products in the VALOI 360 line-up. It can be secured to the bottom of the VALOI Advancer or recommended for use with the VALOI holder when used independently.
360 Film Duster
We all know dust can be a big problem in film scanning. And wiping away dust can generate static, which just attracts more dust! That's why the VALOI Film Duster was to made to screw right onto the back of the VALOI Advancer. These anti-static brushes will capture most of the dust without generating static electricity and give you a significantly cleaner scan.
The two brushes set against each other are fixed in a sturdy machined aluminum frame and attached to the back of the Advancer using the included thumbscrews. This is the perfect anti-dust solution for anyone with the Advancer.
360 120 Film Masks
The VALOI masks are made specifically to fit into both the Advancer with a film holder on top or under the Holders if you use them without the Advancer.
While the Holders can accommodate smaller formats, some setups might struggle with stray light causing flare in the lens or reflections down onto the film, especially with the 120 Holder. In these cases, the masks mask off excess light if you are scanning a smaller format than the Holder's maximum size. They are not necessary for everyone but can be extra security if you want a clean a scan as possible.
