Hi Oliver, could you post some results of using your blue filter?
I will send you a dropbox link later.
Right now I’m still building my lightshaft aperture.
A few things I still need to do here. Inside the whole thing is to be lined with black foam rubber and the top is still a 90/110cm reducer on it. Then the whole thing should work.
The Lomography frames can be used here below.
I am curious.

… btw., during my internet research, I came across an interesting, albeit quite expensive, product in the form of the film toaster ( http://www.filmtoaster.photography/ ).
From a distance, but it also seems to be made of high quality.

Hi Oliver – for what they are providing the price may not be unreasonable. I haven’t gone into the fine details of their product, but I do know from my own experience having a custom stand manufactured from prefabricated high-quality components that these things get expensive pretty quickly. (An article on all this is on my “to do” list, but it will be a while.) Their presentation material doesn’t say much about the quality of the lighting being provided, and critically important what controls and flexibility it has to assure that one can achieve an absolutely precise leveling of the sensor plane relative to the film plane. This requires “very few microns”-level precision. Then of course the big cost and the biggest risk is what their set-up doesn’t include – the camera and the lens, and I’d like to see information on whether their set-up would allow for greater than one-to-one magnification (assuming the appropriate lens). By the time one has completed their set-up with all the necessary components it could end-up costing something in the range of 5000 dollars or so, but possibly produce higher quality digitization much more efficiently than any pro-sumer film scanner in current production on the market.
