Promote Systems has introduced its new Meta35 dongle and software, which together allow certain compatible film cameras to be connected to a laptop for metadata transfer. Supported film cameras include the Canon EOS 1V, Nikon F5, F6, F100, N90 and N90s, and the Minolta Maxxum 7 and 9. 

Meta35 works by connecting a compatible camera with a laptop using the Meta35 cable and dongle. After the camera is turned on and the software is loaded, the camera will appear in the Meta35 software. Clicking 'Import' results in Meta35 pulling whatever metadata is provided by the camera and loading it into the software. Additional information can be manually added to the metadata, which can then be synced to scanned and loaded images from the camera. Meta35 is available for Windows 7 and higher and Apple's OS X 10.9 and higher.

Meta35 is available via the company's online store for $149 USD with a $5 flat shipping rate in the United States. International shipping is also available.
