Open Source Film Cleaner Building instruction
Professional cleaning of Super 8 films during projection Even if Super 8 films have been stored optimally, dust particles and light soiling, which dulls the pleasure of filming and makes digitization obstruct. Even if some of them can only be achieved with a wet cleaning dry cleaning is sufficient for most films. But hardly anyone takes the trouble to clean the films before projection - even in digitization, this would drive up costs significantly. That is how the idea came about, to clean the films "inline" during projection
The result: The Film-Retter® film cleaner
Over the years, we have digitized many, many meters of narrow film and have Methods of dry cleaning improved continuously. How the film cleaner works:
Open Source Hardware - what is that? "Open Source" is so far mostly known from software and means of a program can be published, so that everyone can look into it, make improvements and the improved product can be further distributed. For the benefit of all. With the proliferation of 3D printers, the open source idea has also extended to components and devices conquered. Anyone can print a product, refine the design and again. We Film-Retter® have decided to make the Film Cleaner available as Open Source Hardware because we are sure that other film fans with their experience will still be able to enjoy can contribute further ideas to further develop the machine.
