    Re: DSLR Film Scanning

    Not too many scanner manufacturers left! And the companies facilitating camera scanning solutions? Staffing up!

  5. Re: X or X/ Y Axis Manual Stages for stitching while camera scanning?

    There are small manual stages that I suppose you could marry up to your light source via a cheeseplate or some other adaptor. I also see the potential for spending way more than hoped for and...
  6. X or X/ Y Axis Manual Stages for stitching while camera scanning?

    Hello all -

    Anyone out there using a manual stage for shifting their negatives while using a digital camera scanning set up?

    Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks!
  7. Re: Strobes, Lighting, Metering, and Digital 'Polaroids'

    I have found a new use for a neglected DSLR macro lens - digital proofing in the fashion that you described. And while it won't get down to f64, it gets to f32 - more than handy enough after adding...

  9. Re: Stacking multiple Mod54 or 20th Century Camera 4x5 inserts in a single Paterson t

    This is great - thank you. I am still working through my practice and surely exposing more sheets than I should - it’s hard to stay on top of processing while still working out the kinks. Thanks.

  12. Re: Stacking multiple Mod54 or 20th Century Camera 4x5 inserts in a single Paterson t

    That is an interesting take - I wasn't thinking about filling and drainage times.

    I generally presoak and run D76 1:1 for all of my processing, so times are generally not on the short side.
  13. Stacking multiple Mod54 or 20th Century Camera 4x5 inserts in a single Paterson tank?
