Mike’s Movie Machine – Film Scanner

The AACA Library has built and modified a DIY film scanner. It was originally built to the specs of the Kinograph. Since the original build many improvements and modifications have been put in place including adding a step motor, new backlight, film gates, shutter delays, and other items to help get a more stable and clear image. We are currently digitizing our 16mm film collection and examples of these can be found on our youtube page and in the Video Playlist below.
