Scanning small negatives

Discussion in 'Scanners' started by Perico de los Palotes, Apr 17, 2007.

  1. Hi, all

    Here is exactly the opposite question: I have a bunch of old 110-fomat
    negatives. Any ideas of how to scan them? Has anyone heard of some adapter
    ot something to hold them? I have a Nikkon Coolscan V, great for 35 mm.

    Thanks for any input.

    Your post reminded me that I have my grandfathers old Kodak Bantam camera
    (has a small bellows) that took film that was a bit smaller or a bit bigger
    than 35mm? I still have several rolls of exposed films from this camera
    packed away. He gave it to me when I was 7 years old and I used to take
    photos of my school mates - another project!

    Put them in a glass mount, one by one.
    Wess mounts are nice, reusable.

    The first "110" was a roll film, discontinued in the 1920's. It was
    larger than 2.5".

    I think the OP is referring to "Instamatic" 110 film size, which is only

  5. You are correct. It is the film that came in sealed cartridges, the
    negatives are less than 1/2" wide.

    I am going to take a looks at CMC1's sugestion (slide mounts). Thanks to
    all for your help.

    I am lucky enough to have access to a Nikon 9000 film scanner. This scanner has
    an optional 16mm film carrier tray which I bought for $200 US. But any scanner
    that can scan negatives should do.

    I found out too late that a company by the name of GEPE makes 35mm size
    holders with (13x17mm) center cut outs for 110 film. This should make scanning
    possible with any scanner that accepts 35mm mounts. The plastic mounts pop
    open and close for reusability, and the 6 picture negative doesn't have to be
    cut for scanning. The excess just hangs past the sides of the mount.
