The Aura 35’s maker says it’s the first new professional scanner to be launched in at least a decade, with many existing alternatives 30 years old or more. So if you’ve been having trouble finding a lab that can supply high-quality scans from your 35mm films, that could change!

The Aura 35 isn’t due for release until autumn/winter 2024, but you can get an early look at The Photography & Video Show in the UK this weekend, March 16-19. An early pre-production model will be on display on the Capix stand for the four days of the show, along with a number of other analog-inspired products that bridge the analog-digital divide and fuel the resurgence in film photography.
