How to get a high-quality film scanner for less than $1,000
What do you need to get started with getting a high resolution film scanner?
What about a digital camcorder?
How about a remote control for your TV?
A remote control and a projector?
Well, there are plenty of things you could buy that would let you get the film scanner that you need for $1 or less.
Here are the basics: • The camera: This is probably the most important piece of equipment for getting a decent scanner.
• The scanner: This will need to be a camera, as well as a camera lens and a lens cap.
• An adapter: You can use a USB cable to connect the camera to the scanner.
If you have a digital camera, a USB to HDMI cable will also work.
• A USB cable: You’ll want to get one that can handle 1080p video.
If it can handle that, you’ll be good to go.
• USB power: A USB power adapter is a good option.
It’ll allow you to charge the scanner and/or camera without using a lot of electricity.
• Camera mount: You want to be able to mount your camera on the scanner for a decent viewing experience.
• Portable DVD player: The portable DVD player you want is likely to be portable enough to be mounted on the camera.
• Computer: You should have a computer with a decent processor.
If not, you may want to consider a gaming PC or a portable video card.
• Antenna: If you’re planning on using your scanner for film production, you should consider getting an antenna for the scanner to connect to.
• Cable: If your scanner has a built-in antenna, you might want to look into getting a cord that plugs into the antenna.
• HDMI cable: If the scanner doesn’t have a built in antenna, consider getting a HDMI cable to plug into the camera and vice versa.
You’ll need to connect your camera to your computer, projector, and/ or computer’s HDMI port.
• DVD burner: If a DVD burner isn’t on your list of needs, consider purchasing one instead.
You might also want to try out a CD burner for playback.
• TV remote: If buying a scanner, you need the remote to control the scanner’s controls.
A TV remote is probably not something you’d want to do yourself, but you can always buy a remote from a friend or family member.
• Internet: If it’s on your wish list to get your film scanner in the palm of your hand, you can also buy a wireless Internet connection.
• Micro USB cable or cable extension: A cable extension to attach your camera lens to your scanner’s lens can also help with some of the other equipment you’ll need.
• Remote: If using a scanner and camera together, it’s probably best to use a remote that can control all of the camera’s functions.
A remote will allow you access to settings, zoom, pan, and more.
If the camera has a USB port, a wireless remote may also work for you.
• WiFi router: This should be an easy thing to do.
Just make sure you can connect the scanner directly to the router.
• Video player: A video player is probably a must-have.
If your projector is already on, you probably don’t need a video player.
• Tablet: If trying to get film scanned, you’re probably going to want a tablet that’s compatible with the scanner, too.
A tablet that can do the basics of film scanning should be a must.
You can’t do this without a computer and a video card, though.
• Web cam: The webcam is probably going be your next item of equipment.
You may need to upgrade to a webcam with an audio system, a microphone, or a webcam.
If using your webcam to scan film, you don’t want to buy a camera that can’t handle the same resolution as the scanner in some other way.
• Pen: A pen with a stylus is another item that you may need.
You should get a pen that can use different colors, so you can use it for a digital video camera, for instance.
• Keyboard: If getting film scanned is something that you’re doing on your own, you will need a keyboard for the film.
You probably want one that has a trackpad.
• Ear buds: If making your film is something you want to see, you want something that will let you hear your film.
Some of the ear buds you may also need include a microphone and a speaker.
• Bluetooth headset: This item may be necessary to help you keep track of the scanner when you’re using it for film.
• External power source: This may be a requirement if you’re working on a large scale project.
You want something with enough power to make your scanner run for a while.
• Storage: You might need to store your scanner.
It might be necessary if you want a large, expensive scanner.
You also might want a
