Nikon makes a 35mm roll adapter. I know this because a guy with a Nikon slide/negative scanner
scanned my filmstrip without damaged it. I had to then divide each frame into 2 images since each
filmstrip frame is 1/2 a 35mm image frame. Took about an hour in Photoshop. Then someone with more
patience than I tuned up the colors quite nicely.
