Hi. Are there some experiences already? Does it work? Quality?

It worked for me, but I'm biased of course. The fourth image is how it performed on a 110 negative I took about 30 years ago. I used my Nikon D70 to capture the image. For these small negatives I found the biggest impact on quality was the negative condition. If it is clean, flat and undamaged, you can get quite a good image off of it.

This is so clever, it's giving me goosebumps. Well done, sir!

Thanks a lot!

I'm printing one now, I also have Kodak Disc film and 35mm to transfer, so I might experiment with making a 35mm version as well. Thanks for the idea.

Cool! Once you get the dimensions worked out, post it as a derivative. I think others may find it useful.


i would think i works better with black matte coat on the inside because white reflects a lot of light.

Yeah, I thought so too. I was using white filament to test since I have a lot more white than black. When I tried it though, the scans came out good so I haven't bothered making a black one yet. I think because I don't end up imaging any of the tube directly, the tube is relatively thick, and the light comes straight up from the bottom I don't get much secondary light from the white.
