  1. Re: Drum Scan vs DSLR vs Epson Scan (From Nick Carver's Youtube Channel)

    What I've found works most effectively is not allowing the scanner to do any inversion whatsoever, getting the image into Photoshop, sampling & dividing out the mask, then inverting, then setting...

    Re: Harman Direct Positive Paper Question

    Read the data sheet/ manual. It's all in there, including an example of printing a negative on to it.
  3. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    50% at about 650ppi is more like it & a max resolution somewhere a little above 1200ppi but well under 2400ppi matches more realistically with what I've had to deal with off various Epsons (including...

    Are they wired as pairs, run off a transformer & with fixed filtration in front of each? I've been contemplating using 3x 82v bulbs in a project as I could probably get away with wiring them in...

    The De Vere approach in comparison used 4, 8 or 16 ELH's depending on system. Rather more sensible, but a hell of a lot of dichroic filters...

  11. Re: Printing Cut Lines using Roll Paper - P6000

    Unfortunately this is RIP territory with an Epson, unless you enjoy making imposition layouts in Photoshop - the Canon Pro-x000 series comes with what is effectively a RIP plugin and is one of...
  12. Re: Printing Cut Lines using Roll Paper - P6000

    It's easy enough to do in PS - make your canvas 11x14" & place your image as you wish. Not so sure about LR.
  13. Re: Retrobrom 151 / 152 - Newly released paper from FOMA

    I'd be wary of Portriga/ RR comparisons - the curve seems rather different - I feel I want to say it seems almost Azo-ish - anyway, I think it's a case of getting some & trying it.
  14. Re: Differences Between Tri-X 400 and Tri-X 320

    It's not that simple - colour sensitivity comes into this too - I generally prefer Kodak's colour rendering to Ilford's (I personally quite dislike FP4+ in some circumstances). How you process is...
  15. Re: Differences Between Tri-X 400 and Tri-X 320

    Take a look at Kodak F4017 & the characteristic curves contained within. Simply put, TXP 320 has a softer toe & later highlight compression than TX - thus somewhat more in the direction of the 'look'...
  16. Re: Retrobrom 151 / 152 - Newly released paper from FOMA

    I don't think it was cadmium salts that did them in - they seem to have been largely removed in the 70's/ 80's - rather it seems to me to have been lead salts that were the problem in the warmtone...
  17. Re: Retrobrom 151 / 152 - Newly released paper from FOMA

    Going by the curves and formulation, the answer is likely no - what I want to know is how susceptible to ferricyanide bleaching it is & if it'll split-tone in strong selenium.

    Re: Decided to get a Howtek 8000HiRes

    You'll discover that even at 2000ppi, if it's in good order, it'll knock the stuffing out of the Epson. You'll also likely discover that going beyond 3000ppi often becomes one of diminishing returns...

    Re: 8x10 film processing

    What you want is pp.34-35 of the service manual - OK, it's for ATL2 & 3, but the changes to make the ATL2x00 machines were not to do with these parts of the circuit design as far as I can tell.

  27. Re: Scanning Resolution on Epson V-750 Scanner?

    The Epson may deliver a notional 2400ppi, but the MTF performance is seriously sub par - at very best it will give you the performance of a better scanner running at maybe 1000-1200ppi. You will see...
