Today we received a private message from Adam Af Ekenstam with a solution for a really awesome preview of negative film on your ipad and iphone. But today our friends of Petapixel (link) were faster than me today:D.  If you do not follow them yet, what are waiting for? Visit

I think is a great DIY solution and sure very useful for you if you are a film photographer.

Invert colors

I came up with an awesome way to preview my collection of both negative color and b&w film rolls. It´s really fascinating to see the images so fast and easy, and also be able to zoom in on small parts and discover even the smallest details. -Adam says-

Try this out with your iPad or iPhone!

This is an interesting analog to the light table and loupe. I like it. It might be more efficient/effective if you could put the negs into a 'carrier' of some sort. Just to keep them flat and stable, and to keep your fingerprints off of them. I have carriers for my Epson flatbed scanner and my Minolta film scanner that i will try for this purpose.
