Need help keeping track of your settings?

Using the NOSSAFLEX system

If you’re like me and enjoy looking at your previous images but have a tough time remembering the settings that you used then the NOSSAFLEX system is perfect for you!

These amazing people have developed an application for this film organization system, but I have worked with them to create a printable version for you to take with you while you shoot!

How does it work?

It’s as easy as the name – NOSSAFLEX has all of the information in the title.

NO = Number

SS = Shutter Speed

A = Aperture

FL = Focal Length

EX = Exposure Compensation

You write these down in this order and then translate that information across to the file name of your film scans. That way, every time you look at your photos you know exactly what your settings were.

It’s helped me organize my scans, and also learn from them. Sometimes I’ll completely forget about a shot only to look at my settings and be surprised we could handhold our camera at 1/15th!

What does it look like?

Your file name will look something like this:


That shows us that this image was the 15th photo in the roll, it was shot with a shutter speed of 1/250th, an aperture of f2, a 50mm lens, and exposure compensation of +3! Pretty handy right?

How do I use it?

You can download the application from the NOSSAFLEX website or the printable version for 35mm or 120 film with the buttons below:

I hope that this file organization system can help you, let me know what you think!
