Lomography has announced two new DigitaLIZA film scanning kits that allow you to scan a variety of film formats using either digital cameras or smartphones.
The Lomography DigitaLIZA+ and DigitaLIZA Max are all-in-one film scanning kits that allow you to scan 35mm negatives, 120 film and 127 negatives.
Both kits include 35mm and 120 film holders, a built-in backlight panel, a removable spirit level and scanning masks for regular 35mm and 127 negatives.
Said to have been ‘tested by photographers all around the world’, the scanning kits are suitable for beginners and advanced photographers alike.
