Digitizing your slides with a smartphone is another viable option. Much like the previous solution involving a DSLR camera and an illuminating surface, this method is accessible to smartphone users. However, for improved results and convenience, consider investing in the Kodak Mobile Film Scanner, available at a price of $39.99. This device acts as a smartphone holder equipped with a dedicated lighting surface designed for slides and film. Paired with the Kodak smartphone app, it offers built-in editing features, allowing you to enhance and edit your slide photos effortlessly. Should you prefer not to invest in a dedicated smartphone holder, it is still possible to digitize your slides without one. In this case, ensure you have access to some form of lighting surface to facilitate slide viewing. This approach provides flexibility for those who may not require additional hardware for their digitization process.
