Brands:Negative Solutions Film Holders
This is a 110 film format negative holder for use with the Plustek Opticfilm film scanners (Patent Pending). This was CAD designed and manufactured for use with the obsolete 110 film format that became popular in the 1970s. This negative holder will also work with 16 mm movie films. According to Plustek and other sources, this holder should fit the following Plustek Opticfilm models: 7200, 7200i, 7200i SE, 7300, 7400, 7500i, 7500i SE, 7500i AI, 7600i SE, 7600i AI, 8100, 8200i SE, and 8200i AI.
Specifications for the 110 negative holder:
Overall: 217 x 62 mm Material: plastic Assembled thickness: 6.7 mm Features: Unlike some designs, this holder features a recessed channel to hold your negative strip firmly which can help avoid scratches or trapped dust that other holders may cause.
Important: This 110 film holder is designed specifically for the Plustek Opticfilm film scanners where the user manually advances the film for scanning. This is not designed for models that automatically advance the film strip.
In the 21st century, digital cameras are all the rage. There is an entire generation that likely has never even heard of film cameras. But it is easy to forget that digital imaging has only become widespread in the last 20 years. That means there are over 100 years of film negatives sitting in albums, attics, and basements around the world. Negative Solutions Film Holders makes the products to bring those old memories to digital life. From 126 to 35 mm to 110 film or 127, we likely have what you need.
"This is a fantastic invention. I agitated for YEARS about scanning odd sized negatives and then along came this film holder and it worked perfectly. I was able to finish a project that meant a lot to me. Thank You!" - Negative Solutions CustomerRead more
... I'm not comfortable with the design. You essentially put the negative on a tray, then slide a sleeve over the entire length of the negative. Each time I do this I worry that I'm scratching my negatives as I slide the sleeve over the tray with the negative very tightly pressed between the sliding pieces. I would prefer a design like the plustek 35 mm trays - where the lid gently folds down over the negatives.
This is a handy thing to have for those old 126 negatives. However, it seems like it has come out of a 3D printer. It needed some work doing to it when it arrived. Strands of unbonded plastic, like stiff hairs, had to be removed. The part that hold the negatives in slides over the negative, rather than being hinged like the original parts for 35mm film. And the part that slides had rough plastic riding over the negatives, systematically scratching every negative strip. So this all had to be scraped and sanded, then cleaned up to remove all the dust and plastic fibres. And, in the end, the results are only as good as these ageing negatives permit. You have to really want to move your negatives to digital for archiving purposes to want to buy this. None of the pictures are going to be anywhere near good enough for printing, for example. But in the final analysis, I am happy to be digitising these old negatives and revisiting the memories. It will great to clear out the cupboards full of old photos and see all the pictures again, as well as distribute them to family members. But please bear in mind that a 110 negative is tiny and will not give you the kind of results you get from modern 35mm negatives.
Works very well with my Epson V550 scanner.
Very good value for money for scanning awkward size old film negatives
Great solution for those of us without a 3D scanner. The slider solution works well. The indexing notches snaps reassuringly into position.
It works O.K., little hard to get the frames lined up.
