    Re: Any "Musts" is South Korea?

    Based on our experience it will take you about 3 days to "detox" after leaving. We went to a really nice restaurant with the heated floor (Called an Ondol IIRC) and they served several whole garlic...

    Re: Any "Musts" is South Korea?

    When we were living in Tokyo we made a few trips to SK. Spent time on Jeju/Cheju and it was quite nice. Biggest problem is that my wife was (and is) a Japanese citizen and she was hassled by...

    Re: 203mm Ektar Shutter Help Needed

    I have a few lenses in crap shutters - I just call them "neo-barrel" mounted lenses. It should be possible to front mount the whole thing onto a larger shutter with an adapter of some sort. I have a...

    Re: Scanning 8x10 Negatives

    I've scanned 5 x 7 color negs with the 750, but upgraded to a IQsmart 2. It does a better job (no surprise, I suspect) but the 750 results were quite acceptable. Not sure what film the negs were -...
  8. Re: Features of a universal Filmscanner and why the Epson 700/800 has or has not.

    I like my IQsmart about as much as Ari likes his Eversmart. Even if it IS Firewire. Old Mac Minis work fine, though.

    And from personal experience I can tell you why it's called FIRE-wire. Smoked a...
