  1. Please excuse me if this has already been covered. I did a search and couldn't find anything on topic. I have about 30 years of slides and negatives, 135mm and 6x6 formats. The results I'm getting from my Epson flatbed scanner and the 135mm scanner (I forget its name) are okay, but I'm wondering if I might get better results if I use my SL(601). Is this correct? Can anyone advise if this is worth doing, what I need equipment wise (presumably some sort of holder and a uniform whit background) and if it is feasible to photograph negatives as well as slides? Or am I wasting my time
  2. Hello all, Pretty new to this forum, but really enjoying it. I have been having this annoying problem with my Plustek 120 film scanner. When I am scanning 35mm negs it cuts off part of the picture in the scan even though I have the negatives placed perfectly in the film holder. Does anyone know how I can fix this? Has anyone else had this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I really like this scanner for its ability to pull the the film in and scan while I am away, but not if it doesn't scan the whole picture. Thank you! Sincerely, Peter
  3. Hey guys, I wrote a new article! In this article I will go over my workflow for photos taken on film rather than digital. I will be using software suite Nikon Scan 4, and will go over the settings I use for scanning with the Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 ED. This article will be most of interest to anyone using Nikon Scan 3 or 4 with any of the Nikon Coolscan film scanners. Some features and options will vary per scanner but most will be the same. It will also be interesting for people who use other scanners and software but will need to take this information as is and ‘translate’ it into
  4. Want to share my experience here to install two scanner related Silverfast 8 software packages on the same PC which allows to work with two scanners. I am currently using the Plustek 8200i scanner with Silverfast 8 Ai Suite and the Epson V850 with Silverfast 8 SE Suite. The start page of the software has a dropdown menu to select from multiple installed programs/scanners, but it is not straight forward to get there, and the current manual has nothing in there how to correctly install two or more Silverfast 8 versions for different scanners: 1. Do not install Silverfast 8 from the CD - the ver
  5. Hi! Today I received a batch of negatives which I had processed and scanned at a dedicated b/w lab. Usually I do the scanning myself, but this time I needed some quick results to check the technical validity of some vintage cameras and I had little spare time available. These scans are low res jpeg and only substitute for contacts. I am thinking of re-entering the dark abodes of home-developing, especially after reviewing the result that I want to query this forum about. Seven rolls of TriX, TMax and HP5 from diffeent cameras (M3, IIIf, M7) came out fine, but one roll of film (TMax) fr
  6. After digitizing for quite a while all my 35 mm negatives via photographing them with 1:1 macro lens, tripod, and LED light table, I decided now to get the plustek 8200i Ai scanner with SilverFast 8 software. Main reason for it was correct color calibration of color negatives. To do the color calibration manually in PS or LR is not always easy. Posting here to hear from others who use a plustek scanner with SilverFast software. So far I am very impressed by the scanner and the software. I updated to the SilverFast 8.8 version which has a lot of options - tricky part is to figure out what i
  7. I am just working through some transparency work and scanning it on to the computer. I was particularly pleased with this one which was taken in 1999 on Kodachrome 64 using a Leica M6. Scanning was with a Plustek 8200i, and post was with LT Classic. I think it is amazing how the work we have just put away into a filing cabinet etc. has stood the test of time, and before there is "ah, well it is Kodachrome" some Fuji Provia RDP is just as good.

  8. Hi all, I would like to hear about your practices and get some advice from you regarding the way I clean my negatives before scanning them. Most of my negatives (both color and B&W) are returned to me from the lab with visible stains of water on the film. Probably they don't do the drying correctly and on top of that the water in my city is very hard (lots of calcium and magnesium). If I scan them as is I get quite large white circles. Recently I have tried to use a glass cleaning cloth and I wash it with a bit of liquid soap. Then I use this wet cloth to clean the top surface of th
  9. Here I want to share my experience on scanning scratched negatives. I thought it might be helpful since recently there are many questions posted on this. I've never owned an ICE capable scanner, so I had to find a solution for covering scratches on colour negatives when scanning them with my Konica Minolta film scanner. Post processing is not adequate in some cases. So 6 years back, I purchased a liquid solution called Rexton Scratch-Match from Adorama. It worked great! You just apply liberally over the frame you want to scan, it doesn't evaporate quickly and stays there. You wipe it off l
  10. Hallo zusammen nach unzufriedenstellenden Digital-Experimenten habe ich meine R8 wieder aus dem Regal geholt. Erste Ergebnisse mit Color-Negativfilm und Scanning beim Entwickler waren sehr vielversprechend. Kosten waren soweit auch akzeptabel. Nun frage ich mich, welcher Negativfilm hier wohl am Besten ist. Habe jetzt mal Kodak VC160 bestellt um zu testen. Aber nachdem die Entwicklung und das Scanning nun auch Geld kostet, überlegt man sich natürlich, ob es hier nicht auch einfache Filme aus dem Drogeriemarkt tun. Habe bis dato erst einmal einen deutschen Dienstleister ausprobiert. Der scan
  11. Now that I have the HDR software form Nik, I'm thinking of re-scanning some of my long-scale "difficult" BW negatives to discover if HDR can produce a better result (i.e. print) than a single scan. I have the Epson V700 scanner, and I'm using Vuescan. I also have Epson Scan that came with the scanner, although I've not used it much. But - I can't discover a way of producing two or more scans of different exposures from one neg. I feel that it must be possible, and that I'm missing somethng obvious. Has anyone tried this? Can anyone offer any advice from their own experience? David
  12. If you have one, why not try this? I'm slowly making my way through this YouTube page and it's very enjoyable. Pete
  13. I'm using fomapan 100 with diafine. I exposed the film for iso 200 up till now, but I guess it's better to overexpose , so I will try iso 100. I am then scanning the film with a Nikon Coolscan 5000 ED. I scan to nef raw files. I noticed that one can set a lot of things with the Nikon Scan software. Now, what is your experience in this: should I scan for a flat contrast, with lot's of detail (and use photoshop to create the look I want) , or would it be better to scan immediately for the desired effect? Probably I am trying to find a setting that will do justice to most of the negatives, so
  14. Just got my M6 today! Any suggestions on good photo printing shops in West London? Around Bond/Baker Street? Seems like all the good places are in East London. Many thanks.
  15. You invest in a system. You fall in love. You have some of history's greatest lenses. the prints can make you cry... And then you realize time is short - darkroom time becomes scarce. You scan the negatives and end up with garbage images files that one could achieve with a disposable junk-cam. So, what is the secret to upping one's scanning game to at least begin to show some of the pop, life, and sizzle that an M-system negative deserves? Please don't tell me this is as good as it gets: (M6. 50mm 'Cron, Neopan400. HC-110 "B" 72degF 5.5min. Canonscan 8800F, 16bit, fairly flat
  16. I'm considering the hitherto unthinkable: switching from Vuescan to Silverfast. I just want some opinions from users of Silverfast. Background: I've been pretty satisfied with Vuescan the last few years. But one scenario in particular exposes a problem I keep having trying to export totally flat, linear, color-negative scans: when the entire image is high-key (over-exposed or simply an image that's intentionally just one narrow section of the full tonal range), I find that pretty much nothing I do will give me a scan that is correctly flat and at the same time only fills the correct part of
