  1. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    So...

    This arrangement is f*cking AMAZING. I compared my “digitized” scans (using my Sony a7R III/Sigma ART 70mm/2.8f MACRO/lightbox/copy stand) to an Imacon scan and the results blew me away and...
  2. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Alan,

    Ex-teachers should absolutely get a discount. Perhaps there's a discount for you if you can prove that you are/were a teacher. It's worth a look.
  3. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Alan,

    I got it with my student discount promotion. If you're a student, I highly recommend signing up for it.
  4. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Sandy,

    Thank you so, SO much for your post. Literally 20 minutes before I even saw your post, I bought the following items from bhphoto:

    1.) Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art Lens (for Sony...
  5. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Do I even need ANR glass? What if I kept my negative elevated from the lightbox and mask it like this guy does? (Starts at 1 minute into this video):...
  6. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Sergey,

    I agree with you. I was really hoping someone would encourage me to seriously consider the Epson V850 with the "betterscanning.com variable height wet mount kit" and, like you said, call...
  7. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    I agree. I'm not going to make huge prints anytime soon; that's just a final goal. At this point, I simply want to scan my negatives digitally with my Sony a7R III, a Sigma ART 70mm/2.8 Macro lens,...
  8. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Sperdynamite,

    Thanks so much for this!

    Just two quick questions about the film holder, if I may, just so I get everything right:

    1.) Is there a particular recommended distance between the...
  9. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Should I just get the sturdy plastic 4x5 Holder and the Medium Format Holder for the Epson v850? (BOTH have ANR glass.) At $65 for both of these film holders, this seems like the least expensive...
  10. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    I still need help with this film holder setup, especially since I'm now even more confused. Sperdynamite said that I need a "do-it-yourself something" to hold the Anti-Newton Glass above the light...
  11. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Sperdynamite,

    Thank you so, SO much for this. I'm clearly new to this so your help is incredibly appreciated, as is everyone else's on this thread.

    I do have just a few more quick questions...
  12. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Sperdynamite and all,

    I unfortunately sold my Sony FE 90mm/2.8 G Macro lens this past March, ironically to have enough money to buy a mint used Linhof Technikardan 45 with a set of 5...
  13. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Thanks for this advice! What kind of enlarger wold you recommend for my Sony a7R III exactly? I assume I'll have to get an adapter of some sort, no?


    If you put yourself in my shoes, I have...
  14. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    sperdynamite and all,

    I actually have a Sony a7R III that has pixel shift (but obviously not the pixel shift of the SR1 or the new Sony a7R IV). Would I get better results if I purchased the...
  15. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Has anyone here used the "Better Scanner" Wet Mount device with Aztek mounting fluid with an Epson V850 (not the V700 or V800)? How would that setup compare to the X1 Flextight Imacon scanner?
    ...
  16. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Thanks so much for all of this information! Can you send me that summary to squeeze the best possible results out of an X1 Flextight Imacon Scanner for a 4x5 negative/transparency and 120 film at...
  17. Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Kit?

    I have a large number of 4x5 Fuji Provia 100 transparencies and 4x5 Kodak Ektar 100 negatives, as well as a large number of 6x17/6x12 medium format Fuji Velvia 50 transparencies and 6x17/6x12 Kodak...
  18. Re: Do you know anyone in Los Angeles who can fix issues with large Epson printers?

    Thanks Daniel! I’ll definitely give them a call. I need to call them for their liquid flatbed scanner kit anyway.
  19. Re: Do you know anyone in Los Angeles who can fix issues with large Epson printers?

    Thanks! I appreciate the suggestion. I'll contact them for sure. :)
  20. Do you know anyone in Los Angeles who can fix issues with large Epson printers?

    My friend here in LA is searching for someone to fix her huge Epson SureColor P20000 printer.

    Apparently there's an issue with one of the nozzles.

    Can anyone here suggest someone, besides...
  21. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Before fully turning to his digital Phase One IQ4/Alpa XY/Rodenstock setup, Gursky did use a lot of Fuji Provia and transparency. I heard from a photographer who knows another photographer who...

  23. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    I'm simply asking out of genuine curiosity. I'm also asking because I'm hoping this might reveal Gursky's choice in film (especially his use in transparency) a little more.

    What current line of...
  24. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Any takers?

    If I wanted to take a 4x5 shot of the Rhine to scan and manipulate like Gursky did in his 1996 version (https://www.andreasgursky.com/en/works/1996/rhein-1, not the famous Rhine II...
  25. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Yeah, I did notice some Portra in there too. Where do you see the boxes of CDUII?

    Since you clearly have much more experience than I do, if I wanted to take a 4x5 shot of the Rhine to scan and...
  26. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Why does Gursky overwhelmingly prefer transparencies over negatives?

    While watching that documentary on Gursky ("Long Shot, Close Up") creating one of his photos (Hamm, Bergwerk Ost), I noticed...
  27. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    My girlfriend actually managed to answer my original question by finding this image on Instagram:

    194016

    This is a 2017/2018 photo of Gursky working on an image not yet released of an ocean...
  28. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Yes, of course. I'm very familiar with the economics concerning Gursky's works. He and his gallerists (Victoria Miro, Sprüth & Magers) decided to sell his works as if he's a painter/serious artist...
  29. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    I believe you, Greg, and Oren are right. Looks like the Sinar F2 5x7 model. Gursky was obviously fond of the 5x7 format, likely because it was a good compromise between a 4x5 (which he used often)...
  30. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Can anyone tell me what 5x7 camera model Gursky is using in this photo?

    193896

    I think this very camera might be the same one that he took his most famous pictures with.
  31. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Well, I've made the jump. I went ahead and bought the Sekonic L-778 Dual Spot meter for $150 from an avuncular elderly photographer in SoCal's Inland Empire. The meter looks fairly new and hasn't...
  32. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Does anyone recommend the Sekonic L-758dr, or is that just overkill?

    So far, as far as spot meters are concerned, I'm thinking of the Sekonic L-778, the Pentax Digital spot meter, and the Minolta...
  33. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I just received word back from them saying that they have no more spare parts in their stock anymore. :/
  34. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    So I found a Sekonic L-778 spot meter for sale for $150.

    Is this one that you guys would recommend? (I shoot color negative and transparency. I'm also planning to shoot a lot of night photography,...
  35. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    So I called Quality Light Metric in Hollywood to ask if they can get me the spare dials and perhaps calibrate the SinarSix. It turns out that they have no idea what my light meter even is and, that...
  36. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Thank you so, so much! Really appreciate this! 🙏
  37. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Yeah, I don't really want to give up on it, unless I absolutely have to.

    I found an instruction book at good old cameramanuals.org...
  38. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Wow, those Horseman meters look great! I just checked them out on eBay. Is there a good reason to get an averaging meter like this over, say, a spot meter? (I'm still learning about meters.)
  39. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Whoa! Thanks for the suggestion!!! �� I had no idea that LA had a dedicated light meter repair shop.

    I'll contact them tomorrow, for sure!
  40. Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I think the SinarSix/Gossen Light Meter (see photo) that I purchased either isn't working properly, or I truly have absolutely no idea how to use it. Because of this, I find myself relying on a light...
