    HELMUT is the ultimate analog film scanner on your phone.

    The app uses a unique algorithm to automatically color-correct your negatives. The built in manual controls allow adjusting levels, saturation, gamma, brightness/contrast & sharpness of the image.

    The new version 2.0 was built from a scratch and features a new minimal UI and a much faster & sophisticated image processing technique.

    The app can be used to digitize any type of color and black & white negative film. It does invertion & color-correction real time and can be employed as a quick contact-sheet tool.

    1. Place and press a negative uniformly on whatever you like (see section Lighting the Film below).
    2. Choose the film size and type.
    3. Tweak the scan using the in-app photo editing toolkit.

    General Guidelines
    * Make sure you light the film frame uniformly.
    * Don't use flash or any color effects while capturing the frame with the camera.
    * Leave out the film perforations when capturing. The colors will be more accurate then.
    * Try eliminating other sources of light. Put your main light source (see next section) into a box with a single hole for a phone lens on top of it. This fixes the excessive contrast or color cast in the resulting scan.

    Lighting the Film
    No matter what you use, make sure it's lit uniformly.

    Suggested light sources:
    * Your laptop screen with an empty Notepad window (and turn on max brightness of the screen).
    * iPad, Tab, any tablet with some lightbox app open. Or just plain white screen.
    * Your window pointing to the sky.
    * Google "DIY film lightbox".

    Don't know why the colour is not accurate, it shows blue.

    I used to go to this app for all of my film conversions, mostly because it was the best for converting c-41. Now after the updates I can't achieve the same great color in my "scans". If you guys could make it easy to convert c-41 so that the colors are correct than you would definitely have the best scanning app around.

    Yeah... but! Unfortunately, even using a 12Mpix phone camera all you get is a picture printable 8x13cm at 300 DPI from a 35mm slide. This is OK for souvenir shots but not enough for serious photo work. Considering it is free and the editing possibilities it is great software.

    I have the same problem. With an LG G5 it goes to wide lens automatically. This is a disaster as far as version 1.0 WORKED FINE and there was no need for an update. I was happy with my Helmut Scan... that cannot use any more now !!!!!!
