First 8mm Scanner with Wetgate

The Pictor is the world’s first 8mm film scanner equipped with a wetgate and 2-track audio module. It’s produced by the Dutch company Filmfabriek. Filmfabriek designed this new scanner to digitize archival 8mm films. Because it profits from the same high-quality exposure solution as its bigger family member, both reversal and negative film stock can be digitized at archival quality.
