scanning minox negatives : LUSENET : MINOX FAQ : One Thread

Is there any type of scanner that can be used to scan minox color negatives (also black and white) into a computer?

At this moment, there is no film scaner made particular for 8x11mm format. But 35mm film scanner such as Polaroid Sprintscan (2700 /4000 ) can be adapted to scan 8x11mm by making a mask.

It is similar to using the center part of 35mm enlarger to enlarge Minox negative by masking

I use a Minolta Dimage Scan Dual II for scanning my Minox negatives. I did originally make a mask, but now I just lay in the film strip and scan as if it were 35mm. You get almost 3 frames in one but with a little work in Photoshop I can cut and paste until I have just the image I want left in view. Works real well. I know several other submini photographers which use this scanner and at $450 here in Sweden it's one of the better deals around.

Best Wishes, Duncan.
