  1. Re: Does any scanner have a 3 exposure HDR scan option?

    When scanning my mentors daughter setting in front of the TV with the moon landing on the screen, it wasn't easy for my 4990 to get in one scan. Here's a novel concept, scan like you would shoot HDR....

    Living in the NW I have always used a B+W KR 1.5 with Provia. Unless you are planning on making C Prints, why would anyone shoot a neg film and have to work with the issues associated with film base...

    Re: "People" lens for 8x10

    Sharper is not always better when doing people. It could be a negative with female subjects. Women don't like showing the detail inside their pores. Like that bokeh? kiss it goodby withy at shiny new...
  5. Re: What's making my negatives all blotchy like this?

    I used to have a pickup and did just what you did. With the price of gas it was a subaru legacy that got the nod this round. I did some night shots in arizona because there was no moon to be had.

    Re: Petzval without swirl

    Take back airspace elements out.
    flip the rear element, then flip the two elements as an assembly. Reinstall and you should have a huge curvature of field that will give you swirls.
