  1. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    Two more examples. Both converted neg to positive tonight, no scaling or any attempt at color correction. Neither was sharpened during or after scan. I am still figuring out the profile/method I...

  4. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    I disagree on sharpening after scanning for comparison. The old saying crap in crap out. If your starting dole is degraded then all you are doing is masking issues and your final product will be...
  5. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    No processing of either image was done ( no sharpening, etc). I use the betterscanning adjustable holder and set the height some time ago after testing with a target. Bit images are wet mounted as...
  6. Poll: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

  10. Re: Epson Perfection V800 adjusting for as much as sharpness as possible

    Nice. I didn't know about that link. Excellent find.
  11. Re: Epson Perfection V800 adjusting for as much as sharpness as possible

    It creates a "super" pixel by combiningb4 pixels into one. The final image then is reduced from 6400ppi to 3200ppi with resulting 3200ppi image having better everything than if scanned at 3200poi.
