I have great interest in these sales but I don't see any mentioning of what scanners are compatible to the scanning mask. Maybe I miss it somewhere. Do they work on all flatbed scanners as in both Canon and Epson?

Thanks,
Hin

From what I read online it does work on all flat bed scanner. For Epson, one have to make sure it cover/uncover certain region of that the scanner used to detect the film.

Thanks for the links and your reply. I have a Canon 8800F flatbed scanner and I do see various discussions with some users praising the scanner mask as better than the stock one while others have negative comments as well. I have a lot of difficulty in scanning 135 with my Canon scanner while 120 goes a bit better. I am in particular interested in the 135 mask. I need to research further to see if the 135 mask will improve scanning better than the ANR glass from betterscan.

Thanks again,
Hin

Hi Hin,

The good thing about the 35mm mask is that it can scan the sprocket holes (the 120 one cannot, I hope it did...) and it keep the negative flat. That's one of the reason I want to get it. As I have a 35mm adapter for the P67. The 120 mask probably not much better than those come with scanner. Not sure though.
Mijouju have a review of the 35mm mask:

Just a heads up for everyone - the Lomo site is not very clear on it, but this requires a backlit scanner. Many scanners include a separate corded backlight unit, and higher end ones tend to have it built into the top, but many cheap flat-beds do not have a backlight.

Thank you! Ordered the 120, 135 & 110 through their Canadian Store. Too bad they closed their retail store in Toronto. The 110 is especially hard to find.

I am tempted to buy the 110 mask too... but then I don't have any 110 camera (for future purchase?)...

I have an extra copy but likely have shutter issues. If I manage to find it working and that if you have strong interest to try, I can reserve one for you just for shipping. It looks like this








But the 110 films may not be suitable for you as it looks ridiculously tiny to your 120 film with your Pentax 67 masterpiece with handle.

Those pentax auto 110 lens can be adapted to M43 cameras. And when used on NEX mount, they are wide open.

Cheers,
Hin

Mijouju have a review of the 35mm mask:
The Mijonju Show - Lomography Digitaliza - YouTube
Thank you so much for all the leads. I have subscribed to Mijnju channels and I love how he advocate films as 'Romantic' type of photography. I have ordered both the 135 and 120 mask. It is a shame that the 120 doesn't cover the sprockets. BTW, I have purchased both masks and I actually get 10% discount in looking coupon code in this link today with the inline code for ilovelomo

Warmest,
Hin

Hi Hin,

Very kind of you. sure, never say no to try different film camera.

btw, I don't know why you want Canada link to 110 scanning mask since you live in CA? here is the link to the US store: DigitaLIZA 110 ? Lomography Shop
(though I think the discount is not a lot).

Beside the coupon code you share, when you sign up for their newsletter/create an account, they give you 10 "piggie points" 1 piggie point = 1 dollar. But you have to reach certain amount to use all 10 piggies, but 5 piggies should be no problem.

Mijonju is cool, his camera collection is unbelievable.

I think there is no more Lomography retail store in Canada. I was directed to their "Canadian" Store once I pick a Canadian address and they said the order will be send by USPS. Therefore they probably ship it from US warehouse then.

Lomography should be praised for reviving the 110 format with 4 different films, and hope they will continue to support it. I still have a roll of sealed 110 Kodachrome in its' original box.

Haha, I've just placed the exact same order, but with the addition of 3 rolls of the "Color Tiger" 110 film. Very happy now, scanning 110 without a holder is a PITA, and the other holders will be much nicer than using the stock Epson pieces.

Thanks for the information, LFLee!
