Question perforations on camera negative film strips

Perforation edge on camera negative film strips spaced further apart 1970's, 80's, 90's"

I have a lot of negatives with the perforations about 13mm apart
The current negative perforation edge are very close together.
I have tried many scanners but the perforation points are much closer together for current film

So I have problems viewing the old negatives on the scanners"!

Any suggestions

35mm or 135 film has been the same since 1934. Do you mean APS that had different sproket holes?

I thnk nearly all scanners support 35mm as it was and still is, I think the most popular film format. I'm not so sure about APS, it never really caught on in the 35mm did and was killed by digital.

It does sound like APS, in which case, it should be in a cassette. APS was exposed, wound back into cassette, processed, wound back yet again and then stored in the cassette.

APS scanners have a cartridge holder that feeds the film across the imaging gate, using the information encoded by the camera when the film was exposed.

One way of dealing with APS film that's been removed from its cassette is to use a slide copier attachment with a dSLR. Almost all of these ignore the sprocket holes, so you won't get the problems you have with a 35mm scanner holder.

Otherwise see if a friend has a flatbed scanner with a transparency hood. My old Epson has 35mm carriers without sprocket lugs, so they take APS as well.

Re: perforations on camera negative film strips

Quick question...
My old printer is one of those Lexmark "all in ones", and it has a pretty good A4 scanner on it, which is why I keep it...
Anyone got any tips on using that to scan old negatives?...

Re: perforations on camera negative film strips

I'd say that you need a special neg scanning gizmo to scan negs on a flatbed scanner and your A-I-O won't be up to it. To get decent results the resolution of the A-I-O will not be high enough. You need very high res to enable the engargement to print size unless the negs are at least medium format or bigger.

I've got an old flatbed that has a neg attachment that you load the negs into and it lights the negs from the top.
