Loading negatives into film holders require a bit of care and attention to ensure that the negatives are properly aligned and free of dust or debris. Here are the general steps to follow:

Prepare the negatives: Optional, Cut the negatives into strips that are the appropriate size for your film holder. Make sure that the emulsion side of the negatives (the side with the image) is facing up.

What is a film holder?

The Cassette negative film holder is a device used in photography to hold a strip or sheet of photographic film in place during the process of scanning. The film holder consists of two laser-cut cast acrylic sheets with a slot/ opening to allow the film to be inserted.

The negative film holder is designed to keep the film flat and prevent it from curling or warping, which can distort the image and cause problems during the digitizing process. The holders can also be separated to remove dust and particles.

 Cassette Film Holders are available in a range of sizes to accommodate different types of film, including 35mm film holder, multiple format holder, 4x5 film holder and large format films.
