  1. Re: Drum Scanners: Upgrade from Howtek 4500 to Heidelberg Tango?

    I'll try to to make another scan and reproduce the issues you are having and solving mine scanning negatives without blocking.

    I am not with my scanner/files for the next couple of weeks...

    I'll try to arrange something. The screenshot is a lossless png of the lab-scan, but I am pretty sure it's not 48bit anymore...

  3. Re: Drum Scanners: Upgrade from Howtek 4500 to Heidelberg Tango?

    I haven't been able to use my scanner for a while but recently I've tried your tipps on Portra 400. The results are just lousy, something is still completely off:

    It's obvious to me that my scanning has been really sub-standard by comparison, your scans (Ektar and Provia) are quite impressive!#

  7. Re: Drum Scanners: Upgrade from Howtek 4500 to Heidelberg Tango?

    @sdzsdz

    Thank you so much for your helpful advice! You changed profiles so it is scanned as a negative though you used the positive function? How did you do that?

    Thank you very much, I will try that!

  10. Re: Drum Scanners: Upgrade from Howtek 4500 to Heidelberg Tango?

    I think Tim Parkin worked hard on creating profiles to scan Portra with his Tango properly.

    The weak point of the Tango is it's software:

    - Linocolor: limited to PowerPC-based Macs and 8bit
    -...
