  1. Re: Difference between Howtek Scanmaster 4500 vs D4000?

    Tim,

    Your colleague has a 4500 or a 4000? I was a bit confused.

    Re: Scanning 8x10 B&W film

    Not something I needed to hear...LOL:))!!! I donated my i1800 because it was sitting around too long with me thinking along the lines of the "pros" on this forum saying it's either drum or high end...
  3. Re: Drum Scanner - Actual Costs (purchase and annualized)?

    I consider this to be an example where one could either go the route you went, or even go with a similar Howtek 4500 as the OP stated. In other words, say the OP spends 1.5K for a 4500, is able to...
  4. Re: Terminology: group-portrait vs group-photo

    Going with your subject:

    Group-Portrait sounds more "formal", meaning, is something that would be coined/termed when it involves a special event such as a wedding.

    Group-Photo sounds more like...

  6. New Arrival: Aztek Touchscan Scanner-Printer in One Machine!

    Just got this in my inbox and for $5500, it looks like a very good deal, scanner/printer quality obviously questionable. I know many will argue the drum scanner will do a superior job, or a...
  7. Re: Is there any gratification in using the digital camera for convenience?

    Made with a computer? It doesn't look anything like film, but I know the debate about on screen images will always end with=one cannot judge a photo by how it looks on a computer screen, though some...

    Very well said:)!!! Now how do we get a FF sensor into a compact like the G12? I'd love something FF that fits into a compact enough body, one lens made by Zeiss or Leica, F1.4-2.8, 16mm-100mm...
  9. Re: Is there any gratification in using the digital camera for convenience?

    This is correct. Sure, one needs some skill, but in the end, one only needs to capture a "good enough" exposure and the rest can be handled with a computer. Now if one can produce images that are...
  10. Re: Is there any gratification in using the digital camera for convenience?

    I agree with the many points discussed so far, but this particular one is where I see the post-processing domain as being just that=a way to make another art...it's no different than being a studio...
  11. Re: Is there any gratification in using the digital camera for convenience?

    I agree about the use based point since there are situations where it certainly makes sense over anything else or can even serve to compliment a setup. My question is more in reference to the end...

    Well said Bill and everyone else with a point of view. I did not intend nor mean for this to turn into a digital vs. analog type of affair. I should have included "optically" along with digitally...
  14. How much does the scan take away from the Negative?

    I haven't studied this one much, but given one has a top flight scan of a well exposed neg, how much of that neg gets taken away from the scanning/processing of it into a file? In other words, say...

    In layman's terms, what exactly happens when one scans color film at 5080 spi or is it damaging to the point that it plainly looks ugly and should be scanned at a lower rez?

  18. Re: 5X8 Format, Pros and Cons, and who Shoots with it?

    I have 5X8 holders. But the 5X8 back enables me to use a trick that Jiri and I'm sure many others have used to permit convenient use of 5X7 or 13cmX18cm holders. I would have definitely been...

  22. 5X8 Format, Pros and Cons, and who Shoots with it?

  23. Re: dumping 8x10 and sticking with 4x5. anyone regret?

    Ahhhhh...you just had to didn't ya?:)) I'm happy I had a look at the 4X5 shot because while the 8X10 shot is clearly the winner here, it's not that much more superior to the 5X7 shot as is the 5X7...
  24. Re: dumping 8x10 and sticking with 4x5. anyone regret?

    If you can get back decent cash for the 810 outfit and you still want to use LF for some reason=only thing I can think of over roll film is having movements, I'd do this:

    1) Get a 6X9 bellows...
  25. Re: dumping 8x10 and sticking with 4x5. anyone regret?

    And people complaining about the weight and/or not getting any difference in quality;).

    How do you think the 5X7 stacks up to the 8X10?:)

    Re: safe haven for tiny formats

    Wowey...this one has such a very real look to it. Any chance to see it larger? It's one of the nicer ones I have seen with how beautiful the color tones/lighting/depth/and sheer realism of it is.

    Re: Real image circle for 80mm XL

    Ed,

    Do you see more IC from the 110XL? I know the 90XL covers 8X10 with very little vignetting and makes excellent photographs on the 8X10 sheet of film. Interesting how well your 80XL does.
