Kinograph film digitizer powered by Raspberry Pi

Matthew Epler, who has just finished a Master’s Degree from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, has developed an innovative open source project for digitizing old film stock at a fraction of the cost of conventional off-the-shelf systems.
The Kinograph is powered by a Raspberry Pi and uses software to stabilize a series of captured images and extract optical sound. The system also requires a consumer-grade digital camera, a few 3D-printed parts, such as rollers that can take different sized film, and a few components that can be cheaply sourced over the internet.
