    Use your Iphone as a negative viewer

    It's good to see young kids processing film

    Good to see young guy using film and a very useful tool. Just tried it and it worked great!

    I just set up my iPhone to do this today - it's not going to replace contact sheets (generally washed out and poor blacks) but this is a very smart idea to quickly peruse negs.

    Easy to do and works great in a pinch.

    Just saw this today as well. I agree the quality isn't good enough to replace contact sheets, but it's great to get a sense of what you've got with a freshly developed roll of film.

    Nice idea.

    Something that I've been doing is using my iPad as a lightbox -- I have the flashlight app which makes the screen white (and it will stay on indefinitely) and with my loupe and negative sheets it works great.

    I used to do it with my shitty flip phone when i was in high school. I still do it with my equally as shitty slider phone...

    You can do the lightbox thing with a digital P&S or DSLR - just take a pic of a white sheet of paper. Voila - instant lightbox! And when you run the batteries down, well hey, you still have a real camera to take photos with!

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    Ive also been doing this for awhile now too, but I use a free sbsettings toggle from cydia to enable inverted colors. It is much easier to do this if your negs are sleeved and on a light box than hanging free. You can also rest your phone camera on a loupe for a magnified view.

    Sometimes when I do want a quick look while drying, i max out the brightness of the screen (another sbsettings toggle), and open up the web browser and a new blank tab. This gives me a bright white screen to put behind the negs that are hung up to view them quickly.
