    Drum scanning service Screen DT-S1045AI Sydney Australia

    Hi all,

    I recently purchased a Screen DT-S1045AI and have spent the last five months getting up to speed in both mounting and scanning.

    It's a very impressive piece of hardware, both in terms of size and capability.

    So now I feel confident that I can offer drum scanning to other photographers.

    I can do up to 12" x 18", though the largest I've done so far is 4'x5" sheet film and 6x17 rollfilm.

    Max resolution is 8000 DPI and anything over 16384 DPI in either axis can be done via stitching together tiles.
    I have tested this out on a 617 frame and the registration of the tiles was sub-pixel accurate.

    It puts out the full 16 bit colour depth too.

    I'm using calibrated Lacie Electron Blue monitors and the results from recent prints I had done from some scans were spot on.

    I've begun to work with colour negatives also and have a workflow developing.

    I'm in Sydney Australia, though that shouldn't be much of an issue with film being cheap to send via registered mail.

    Anyway just wanted to put this out there for anyone that is interested contact me via PM or email for details glennnrbarry@optusnet.com.au.

    Also if anyone can suggest where else I might post to other photographers I'd appreciate it as I'm just starting out with the scanning service.

    regards

    Glenn

    What price are you doing 6x17 at? Can you break down the prices by volumes? (eg. for 0-10, 11-20 and so on)?

    Thanks.

    I'm definitely interested in your 4x5 pricing.

    Hi Guys,

    Happy to provide you with numbers if you can let me know what quantities and output sizes you are looking for.

    The film format isn't so much a consideration as the file size from a particular format.

    The higher resolutions absorb increasingly more machine time as the drum speed slows.

    Mounting is pretty much the same for each format.
    I do them each individually, getting two pieces of film mounted, bubble free, under the one overlay, ended up being more work than individually.

    regards

    Glenn
