    Kudos to Ian at PrePressExpress

    A while back, I inquired on this forum about drum scanning labs that can handle large (12x20 and 7x17) sheets of film. Several people recommended Ian Mazursky at PrePress Express. I just got back a...
  3. Re: Kodak now has two business lines - which one is LF in?

    Your're probably right. Every time I ask myself whether I am getting too cynical, events transpire that indicate I have not been cynical enough.
  4. Re: Kodak now has two business lines - which one is LF in?

    This has to be about the dumbest thing I have seen in a while. So they split film sales and marketing up into two divisions. Just how are they going to assign costs from what is most likely a common...

    I concur. My 4 year old MacPro handles 39Megapixel Phase One files just fine without any problems. The new iMacs are more powerful than what I am using.

  12. Re: Video tutorial on drum scanning, or the scanners themselves?

    My Howtek HR8000 is not loud at all, just a tick,tick,tick sound as it scans. I had it right next to my desk for years, and I would let it do its thing while I worked on other things on the computer.

    Some of the very warm toned early 1900s vintage prints you see in museums were mercury toned. Needless to say, this technique is discouraged today because of the obvious dangers of mercury use.
