How to Convert a 35mm Camera to Digital


Although you can’t force your 35mm film camera to record onto a digital format, you can convert the 35mm images you take to digital files. You have two options: You can ask whoever’s developing the film to save the images onto a CD, or you can scan the images yourself using a scanner and computer.

Things You’ll Need : Scanner


  • Take your 35mm role of film into the developer’s facility and have your images put on a CD.
  • Power on your computer and the scanner. Having the images placed on a CD costs a few extra dollars, so you may want to convert the 35mm content to digital yourself.
