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

    Why does FF vs let's say M43 matter if they both have the same resolution?
  2. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Do you need to go to a full frame cameras or can the smaller sensors do as well?

  6. Re: Measuring the light using a digital camera

    Why run a test with film? If the digital camera readings match your hand-held unit, then it's the same. If it doesn't, then it doesn't.
  7. Re: Measuring the light using a digital camera

    How would you correct the digital camera readings once he gets the hand held light meter? Just see if they match or something beyond that?

    I use an Epson scanner. I bought the Kaiser unit to view slides and chromes, that's all. I figured since I had a NEC Spectraview II puck, I'd measure what the light table puts out as that info...

    In looking at the Kelvin numbers, there's about 2% total difference from all the readings from the "worse" to the "best". What that means to someone using it as a light source for copying, I don;t...

    I'm not using it for copying rather for looking at chromes. Curious about the different readings. I imagine that's probably because there are dozens of LED's that make up the whole panel. So you...

    Re: Epson V750 and V850

    If you want to post them on the internet, or show them on your computer screen or on a UHDTV, you have to digitize them. Hence a scanner, a necessary "evil". :)

    I don't develop my own film, but send it out. So, I'm wondering. How do you develop 8x10 film in a 10x8 tray? Do you do half first than the other half? Or do you rotate the tray? :confused:
