Film photographers now have a better way to view their negatives without needing a magnifying glass and a light table. Youtube User Adam of Ekenstam came up with a thrifty way of viewing the negatives using an iPad and your phone or another light source. Basically, said light source is acting like a white light table and the iPad camera is enlarging the negative so that you can look at it with more scrutiny. Of course, Adam recommends not taking photos of these because the negative isn’t being stabilized due to hand holding, but it’s great for just previewing and viewing at a larger size.
