DIY: El Cheapo Slide/Film Scanner

One of the more fun blogs that I read and subscribe to is the DIY (Do it Yourself) Photography blog founded by a very inventive guy named Udi Tirosh. It's one of the most interesting and fun photo sites you'll find and they'll teach you how to build almost anything photographic yourself--and a heck of a lot more cheaply than if you went out and bought it. This week they ran a fun piece on how to build a homemade scanner/film copier from a couple of toilet paper tubes, some tape and a filter--and it looks to me like it would work! Go to the article and you'll see another view of what this homemade gizmo looks like. And while you're there, subscribe to their blog!
