I’m currently using the Lomography Digitaliza holder which isn’t terrible by any means, but I just recently developed some Fuji film for the first time (first color development ever) and they are super curly. This was causing a lot of issues trying to keep the film flat in the Digitaliza. I even sat a case of canned drinks on top of the negatives for two days and they’re still fairly curly. Film will sometimes be curled, I get that. So rather than go into some methods of flattening out film each time, I’d rather just get a film carrier that’s going to do a solid job at it for me.
I’m wondering if anyone has used the Skier and/or Negative Supply MK1 and can give me any information on how flat they hold the film. As I understand, the Negative Supply MK1 holds the film very flat as it’s being cranked through. But if the Skier does a comparable job at holding the film flat I’d probably go that route due to the lower price. They both look like quality pieces.
Also, would the Skier hold the film flat even without the copy box part? I already have a great light that I enjoy using.
TL;DR: Does the Skier Copy Box hold film flat comparable to the Negative Supply holder?
