  1. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Did you determine the best height to suspend the negative? How did you keep the negative flat?

    Having separate profiles for each film stock is even better. Wolf Faust , Hutch color, and others made the profiling targets. It really does make a difference, which I know from first hand...

  7. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Dealing with grain is highly scanner dependent. For example, I used to own both a consumer flatbed and a Nikon Coolscan. The Coolscan absolutely obliterated the flatbed, at least it did with...

    Great summary, Rick. I too hadn't heard of laser scanning before.

    Grat, if it's so much trouble, why are you talking about it? Just don't do it. Problem solved.

    I don't find it fiddly or difficult, and you're lumping a bunch of different approaches together. For example, using a slide duplicator with a digital camera is easy and much faster than any other...

    I've got one of those, too. It's a very good performer. I expect it's pretty close to the Apo Rodagon D 2x f/4.5 lens, but that's just a mildly informed guess. It's definitely different from the...

    Re: Stitching scans or not???

    Jason, you can use these lenses normally or reversed. The 1x isn't very good at other magnifications. The 2x/.5x is a bit more versatile.

    I haven't had those lenses, but I have had a couple of the Ilex 254mm Paragons. Both were outstanding performers.

    Re: 65mm lens comparison

    It really is strange. In 35mm/LX digital, my favorite lens is 20mm, but in 4x5 I use 120 much more than 90.

    Having the anti-alias filter removed doesn't seem worth it. It's expensive. It might affect your camera for other uses. And it's unclear how big of a difference it would make. Even my really old...

    Re: DSLR Scanning - Signal / Noise

    I used to do 25 frames per 4x5 at 1x magnification. I found that going higher lead to better results on a high resolution test target, but it didn't lead to better results with regular negatives.
