FilmLab came from a personal desire to have a better tool for viewing and digitizing our negatives. We love film photography, but found the process of organizing, viewing, and digitizing negatives to be a chore. A lot of this has to do with the tediousness of scanning negatives using a flatbed scanner. Abe started thinking about what might be possible using the cameras and processing power of modern smartphones. After a couple years of research and development, and a boost from a successful Kickstarter campaign, FilmLab was born.
