    i was looking at my negatives the other day, using my iPad as a light table...then it came to me that you can use your iPad + iPhone to scan your negatives if you really need to. the results will turn out alot better if you shoot slide film.

    there are 3 simple steps:
    1. set your iPad to full brightness with a white background, then lay your negatives on top of it
    2. using your iPhone, take a photo of the frame you want scanned
    3. open up the image in Photoshop Express, then crop, mirror horizontally, and invert the colors.

    the resulting image:

    hmmmm.... interesting idea! Hadn't thought of it.
    I have thousands of medium format 6x7 transparencies from the old film days that I might try this on. But I'll use a lightbox for illumination.
    Great idea!
