More than a century old, single lens reflex film camera technology peaked between 1992 and 2004. During this period leading manufacturers created professional cameras that stored exposure information and camera settings, enabling photographers to get better results. As technology evolved, digital photography became dominant and the advanced data management and camera customization technology of film cameras was left behind.

Meta35 revitalizes and extends these capabilities for classic Canon, Nikon and Minolta cameras with a new film-to-digital hybrid workflow. Film enthusiasts can now customize their cameras, download shooting data and embed exposure information, EXIF and IPTC data into their scanned images. In spite of the advances of digital photography, film remains the medium of choice for many due to its unsurpassed tonal quality and rendition.
