    Any scanner with a film function will work.

    Any film scanner will work *as long as it accepts 120 film*. Some do not, so if it’s 35mm filmstrips only, you’re out of luck.

    I was talking more of, say, an office scanner/printer… Teh fundz don’t allow for a new scanner/camera/film spree

    Most likely that won’t work, but most places that develop film will scan it for you too. High res scans can be extremely expensive, but sufficient for web posting shouldn’t be.

    Blargh. I was hoping to force some 35mm film into the holga and get those nice developed edges like in orionid’s examples, but I also hear if you take them to get developed that way it can get pretty pricey. I guess I’ll just have to shop around.

    Many scanners have a ‘film’ option though. We don’t own a film scanner. To scan 120 film we simply lay it in the center of the scanner bed and put a piece of glass over it to keep it flat and straight.

    I don’t know where you looked but around here, costs for 35mm “develop only” is cheaper than anything else. We’ve taken ours to CVS and Walgreens. We tell them “it’s artistic film” so they don’t think they fucked something up.

    If you’re talking about making custom size prints from the negatives, then yeah it’s probably pretty expensive. Also look at your editing software – even if your scanner doesn’t have a negative scan option, you might be able to convert scanned negatives to the correct colors in post processing.

    Thanks for the tips, Kes. If I get my grubby hands on the Farkolga, I’ll give it a try 🙂

    This was my bad. I was thinking with just the 35mm, and not capturing the edges. A 35mm strip scanner will still get the photo information off the film, and from what I’ve read, the software in most will detect the film as “panoramic” and still capture the full length of the exposure without the sprocket holes.

    To get the sprocket-hole effect, you have to scan it as medium format, which will take a flatbed scanner with medium format film function.

    Kestrana’s right about the film, though, I take my 35mm to the local drugstore (and even walmart when I lived in NY), and it’s only a couple bucks for “process only.” I even have them cross-process stuff for me (I load my own e-6 into a reloadable spool and write C-41 on it. That’s all they know to look for).

    Huh? I’m asking what happened to it.
