Lomography DigitaLIZA Max Lets You Scan Film With Your Smartphone

Lomography announced two new film scanner kits, the DigitaLIZA+ or DigitaLIZA Max. These can be used with a smartphone or digital camera to make it super easy for tabletop scanning.

Lomography claims that the new film scanning kits were designed to overcome the limitations of the expensive, complex, and fiddly available film scanners. Lomography claims that the new system allows for flexible and easy film scanning. These two kits were inspired by DigitaLIZA’s scanning masks and its Smartphone Scanner.

These kits include 35mm and 120 film holders as well as a built in backlight panel and magnets that keep film flat during scanning.

The Lomography DigitaLIZA+

DigitaLIZA+ can be described as an all in one modular system that allows for easy scanning with a DSLR or mirrorless camera. The kit contains everything you need to keep film flat and lit, but the photographer will need to bring their own tripod and camera.

DigitaLIZA+ scans 35mm film, 120 film and 127 negatives. It can also scan special formats such as overlapping exposures or exposed sprocket holes. Lomography states that photographers have the ability to set their camera settings to control the look of the image. The built-in advance knob allows for easy film advancement to the next frame.

Lomography DigitaLIZA Maxi

DigitaLIZA Max combines everything from the DigitaLIZA+ with a smartphone holder column. This allows anyone to scan film on their smartphone. It is compatible with all smartphones on the market, according to Lomography. It works with standard and experimental frames, just like the DigitaLIZA+. The device’s design allows for scanning with any negative format.

If you require higher-quality scans with a digital camera, the smartphone column can be removed.

Lomography also has a series PDF guides and videos that will help users get the most out of the scanners. You can find the entire set of guides on the company website.
