    Re: Large scans on a student budget?

    An Epson V700 will make very large detailed scans from large format film. 5x7 will scan like a dream. Spring for the fluid mount adapter (if it allows for 5x7...can't recall if it's just or 4x5). ...
  2. Re: I want to get better at 8x10 scanning, send me your tips!

    Tip 1. Call Micheal Streeter and order an IQSmart scanner.

    That's the only tip. An IQSmart2 even will blow away an Epson, keep up with most drum scans, and make your life crazy easy. We are...

    Re: Best New Scanners Available?

    You'll make your life a lot easier by picking up a IQSmart 2 or 3 from Micheal Streeter. If I was to go back to cam scanning I'd do something with autofocus and a modern high res sensor. Fiddling...

    Re: 300mm Rodagon with Slight Edge Fungus

    I got a spanner wrench and went at the rear retaining ring and man it would-not-budge! Any tips for loosening this thing? I'm pretty confident I can clean the fungus if I can get to it.
  6. Re: Bergger pancro 400 in bergspeed: Unseen base fog

    It's a pretty weird film. The amount of grain for a modern film is kind of bonkers. I do use it occasionally, sometimes I like the extreme grain in 35mm. Just shoot first and ask questions later...

    Re: 300mm Rodagon with Slight Edge Fungus

    I do see a way to start disassembling the lens from the rear if I had a spanner wrench. Can't tell if the fungus is between cemented layers yet.

  13. Re: Scanner Comparison 2019 [Epson Flatbed | Eversmart Flatbed | Drum Scanners]

    You can easily achieve those sizes with an IQSmart2, IQSmart3, Eversmart Supreme I/II. Easily both in the sense of the scanners capabilities and in the sense of fussing with the hardware.
  14. Re: Scanner Comparison 2019 [Epson Flatbed | Eversmart Flatbed | Drum Scanners]

    Great to have this back...perhaps the site mods could find a way to archive it all. It's a bit more useful than the existing scanner comparison IMHO.

    IME the new Ektachrome is more neutral, and that means more blue. As with Provia, a warming filter can be your friend.

    I've used Deardorff and Chamonix 5x7s. The Deardorff can do more, has longer bellows and double extension. The Chamonix I have is horizontal only and much lighter which I wanted. I think both are...

    Find yourself a user condition Deardorff Special with the 5x7 back. Should be roughly similar in price.
