Press Release

Film photographers can now enjoy the same level of data management
and camera customization as digital photographers
Houston, TX – June 11, 2015 ­

Meet Meta35, the new software and hardware kit that brings the convenience of digital data management and camera customization into the world of film photography. Meta35 takes the exposure information from compatible film cameras (see list below) and embeds it into your scanned images, eliminating the needto manually record this information in the field. This saves you time so you don’t miss that next shot. Meta35 also lets you fine ­tune your film camera to fit your particular needs. You can easily configure and save your camera settings from your computer — a big help as film cameras lack large screens for navigating the settings menu.

● Transfer shooting data from a film camera directly to your computer.
● Embed the data into your scanned images.
● Customize camera settings to your liking.
● Store custom settings configurations as presets.
“Photographers are rediscovering the unique experience of shooting film and a look that simply cannot be duplicated with digital photography. We wanted to make the film­to­digital workflow easier and more complete so photographers can focus on the creative side of the process. There has never been a better time to rediscover the magic of shooting film.” ­
Arty Kamshilin, Promote Systems lead engineer.

● Canon EOS­1V
● Nikon F100, F5, F6, N90S, F90X, N90, F90
