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

    Here is a great recent example of Portra 160 scanned with the S1R in pixel shift. I processed this with Negative Lab Pro. I did NOT do any dusting yet however, so you'll see some of that.

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

    Based on that argument you are saying that contact prints from 8x10s have no value? Also you’re the one that said it was so easy so how many megapixels am I resolving based on the chart you told me...

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

    Even at 155mp with nothing to flatten the Portra 160 4x5 I scanned today I had no flatness issues. If the film was obviously curling I'd simply tape or weigh down the edges. Every case is slightly...

    Re: Diagnosing a Light Leak

    I tried the trick with the flashlight and I can't see any leak no matter how I pull my darkslide out. I'm going to order some RC paper and do some tests next week. It's pretty baffling frankly. ...

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

    You may not. If you're putting the film emulsion side to the glass then 'in theory' it should not produce newton rings. It also doesn't degrade the scan so I just use ANR glass to be on the safe...

    I like that he still doesn't understand how pixel shift works so he just continues to be wrong, but with wonderful aplomb.

    Re: Diagnosing a Light Leak

    Is it at all possible that this leak came from a semi loose lens board?

    Diagnosing a Light Leak

    I'm trying to diagnose light leaks. Do these look like they are camera back related or film carrier related? These leaks are almost always in this basic spot.

    Thanks!

    1. Not that I know of, just whatever works to blur any surface scratches on the panel.

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

    I thought it might be easier to show and not tell. Apologies for the noisy iPhone pic. This is my set up for scanning sheet film. The window behind has a blind that comes down to mask all light by...
  15. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    I would say that you are right on with everything save the film holder set up. I would avoid the Better Scanning kit, as I have it and it doesn't really sit flat on a light table. The anti newton...
  16. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Yeah it's just based on Fuji Image Intelligence, and it actually has a Noritsu profile as well. There is a lot of flexibility, it doesn't clip like the Frontier will. I hear you though, custom LUTs...
  17. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Frankly I would continue to use your 90mm Sony lens. It's supposedly great. It might be over long if you're scanning larger formats though, perfectly fine for 35-4x5.

    The copy stand is easy,...

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

    I've tested it and with a DSLR there is very little need. It does reduce dust and scratch prevalence a bit, but you don't get that general increase in quality that you sometimes see with other...

    1. Photography critics worth reading don't stick their nose up to prints and report back what they see.

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

    Of course! The K-1 II is an excellent but ultimately flawed camera. It's AF system is just unforgivable really, though that doesn't effect scanning much. It's great for 35mm where you can get true...
  22. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Blah blah blah blah blah I've heard it all before about effective pixels. There is always some 'well actually' guy online who has some napkin math to tell you what's wrong with your scanning rig. ...
  23. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Camera scan. My Panasonic S1R makes a 155mp image from 4x5 sheets in seconds. The quality is incredible, and you'll be done in a few hours as opposed to days. Camera scanning makes the X1 obsolete...

  26. Have you found exotic developers worth it for 8x10?

    I'm going to be processing my 8x10 in a Jobo expert drum, and I'm going to be establishing my system for consistency with a densitometer, the whole works. So I'll be settling on a developer of...

    E100 is one hell of a film. This stuff in 8x10 is going to absolutely slay. Shut up and take my money, Kodak.

    8x10 Film Choice Paralysis

    When I started shooting large format in 2005, if you would have told me I would have a relative cornucopia of choices for 8x10 sheet film in 2019 I don't think I would have believed you.

    Re: Fastest film for 8x10 other than TMY

    In 120 people regularly push HP5 as high as 3200 with pretty good results. I'd say this film won't even sneeze at 1600, that would be my go to for speed. Tri-X 320 similarly will push well, though...
