Camera Scanning

I just came across a company that’s manufacturing a camera-scanning setup kind of similar to my homemade one:

Pretty nice looking unit, but crazy expensive in my opinion, at $1,500!  And you’d have to add the optional focusing rails to be able to adjust your framing beyond their pre-set slot distances from your camera.  (Are those toilet-paper roll holders as handles?  Hey, whatever works!)

Here’s a link to a video review of it

And here’s my setup:IMG_2022

I think the film transport track on my 35mm scanning system may actually work better than their system, because I don’t have to load a film holder before inserting it.  I did see in a video that one of their 35mm film holders lets you slide film through it, but it looks like the negs would rub on the plastic as you slide it, potentially scratching the film.

I’m curious whether they actually sell many of these units.
