    Don't Tell The Wife!

    At last... it's all come together.

    The used Wista, lupe and Combiplan tank turned up; went to Scotland last week; processed some negs last night; Epson 4990 turned up today.

    Here are two negs for appraisal - yes, it's my wife under the waterfall.

    I obviously have much to learn about this scanning stuff - how do you get full frame (with border, notches etc.)?

    Can't wait now to get the negs into the Beseler - something I understand a bit better and can control.

    Be honest... but not too honest (about the negs, that is)!

    My thanks to all of you who have helped so far via this wonderful forum.

    Thanks.

    It's on the Ellary estate in Argyll - heaven on this earth!

    Being under a focussing cloth was a welcome break from those midges.

    Visit Scotland anytime between May and September and you'll find out!

    It's a small gnat, and Scotland is infamous for them. Great clouds of them attracted to anything that emits carbon dioxide!

    It's an annoying little POS that contributes nothing positive to the planet, yet takes up air and sucks blood from anyone it can. Most of them end up in DC.

    If it ain't broke....don't fix it!

    Damn, it's been twenty years since my wife looked that good -- and that was two wives ago.
    If a contact print at arm's length is too small to see, you need a bigger camera. :D
