To scan images, you’ll have to download the partner app. Kodak says the app lets photographers “crop, rotate and adjust images, alter colour and contrast, add flattering filters, and switch camera from negative to positive mode with just a swipe”.

Kodak also told PhotoBite: “Our handy scanner is crafted of heavyweight cardboard, which folds down into a small, compact package for portable ease. A built-in LED backlight illuminates your old 35mm films and slides, while the dedicated KODAK Mobile Film Scanner app lets you control everything on your smartphone screen. Crop, rotate and adjust images, add flattering filters, and share directly to social media for Throwback Thursday and more. It’s time to get moving on your personal media conversion.”

Once you’ve got all the scans you want, the scanner can be dismantled and rather conveniently transforms into a slender box.
