How can I scan old APS-for­mat films?

Chris says… Not many film scan­ners were com­pat­i­ble with APS film. The Kon­ica Minota DiMage Scan Dual IV, the Fu­ji­film AS-1 and the Canon Canoscan 4000 were three of the best, and you may find one on eBay.

You could take the film from its car­tridge, cut the neg­a­tives into sec­tions, then scan them on a flatbed scan­ner, or repho­to­graph them us­ing a D-SLR, macro lens and a light­box. There are also scan­ning firms that can do the job for you.
