Does the DigitaLIZA work with my scanner?

The DigitaLIZA works with all modern flatbed scanners with a backlight/transparency unit. This simply means that when scanning there comes light from below (basic unit of the scanner) and above (top cover of the scanner). If you hold a negative in front of you, you also need to hold it against the sun to see anything – likewise, a scanner needs the light from above to properly "see" and scan your negative.
If your scanner doesn't have a backlight/transparency unit, then you cannot use it for scanning photo negatives.

Most Lomographers have Epson or Canon photo scanners. These are great devices for reasonable prices that serve all your needs for scanning your negatives. The DigitaLIZA works with both present-day Epson and Canon scanners with transparency units.
