Turning a film negative into a film positive by creating a new film negative.
I have this Nikon lens adapter for film negatives. Its made to quickly digitize film negatives with a digital camera. The idea is you take a digital photo of a film negative then invert it on your computer. It’s faster and smaller then a scanner. With the added benefit of future upgrades to your digital camera. DSLR scanning as some call it.
SO just for fun I wondered what if I attached this to my F6 film camera and photographed a negative to create a new negative that looks like a positive.
Instructions on how the adapter works, but instead of a digital camera I used a film camera.
New negative of original negative taken using digital adapter but with a film camera.
Inverted turns the original negative into a positive, as usual.
New negative made with the adapter turns the positive looking negative into a negative looking positive.
Film negative but positive
Film negative inverted positive but negative
Its a real unique thing to look at a film negative and see a positive image, and not used a computer to do it.
