Pixl-latr - Has anyone used one?
1

Hi all,

I'm about to have to scan a bunch of negatives and slides, and I'm still weighing options (older film scanner vs. DSLR scans). By far the most annoying aspect of scanning via camera is keeping the film flat, so I'm kind of tearing my hair out about that bit. The Essential Film Holder looks very cool, but it's pretty expensive and seems like lead times are 4-5 weeks at the moment. The Pixl-latr, on the other hand, is less than half the price. Sadly, there don't seem to be many reviews out there yet.

So, does anyone have one? If so, does it keep the film flat and avoid scratching it? Would you consider it worth buying?

(I suspect the answer to my first question is 'no,' but thanks if not!)
