Scanning Negatives with a DSLR
I had some negatives that I wanted to scan to my computer. I have a nice flatbed scanner, but I didn't feel like setting it up and installing drivers and software and what not. I took my 7D with a cheap 70-300 lens with macro and pointed it at a window. I tape the negative to the window, focused on it, and took a picture. I opened the raw files in lightroom and converted them to positives, cropped a little bit, and got a surprisingly nice image. White balance is a little tricky, but it's not hard to get a good color photo as well. I left this one as a B/W.
Here is a video. Pardon the baby making so much noise, he was in a pretty good mood yesterday.
