    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Let me run the Epson file thru Nik define. It is for removing noise from digital images but works well with scans. I ran the Howtek thru define so that may account for some of the differences.

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    That is true about training the Epson. If you make adjustments with the Aztec software you can store those adjustments as a calibration file and then do final scan using that calibration file. End...

    Thanks!

    That band is rain clouds. You get the these vertical winds out of the canyon that can cause vertical separation of clouds and rains. I have a black and white of the canyon with a storm...

    Thanks! There are a whole bunch of dead trees at Sunset Crater Park, Flagstaff, AZ. I plan to take a day or two and photograph them. Kinda like a study in death.

    I did. What I may do is reprocess the Epson scan with the experience I now have since then. I agree with your comments Peter.

  18. Re: Howtek scan of one of my first 4x5 images

    Yeah, but that is a lot of work to crop out 100% scans. In a sense, you end up not seeing the forest for the trees. I tend to focus on the overall image. It is nice to zoom in sometimes, but the...

    Howtek scan of one of my first 4x5 images. Toyo 4x5 and 75mm lens. Many things technically whacked, but still not a bad image.

  23. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    Thought about doing something like that, but never got to it. I bet with 3D printing, one could make an excellent film scanner. Especially with something like the Canon mirrorless that was just...
  24. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    I use the better scanning film holder, anr glass, and optical mylar with scan fluid and a brayer roller to squeeze out all air and flatten the negative between the mylar and glass. Works great.
  25. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    To my knowledge there is no pixel shift. The V850 has a true 6400 optical resolution. Once you go above that, it becomes an interpolated result I think. Again, I think having to perfect a scan...
  26. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    All the samples I post are wet mounted on the Epson and the Howtek. I can certainly tell the difference. I have been able to have all my 4x5 film lay flat when wet mounting for the epson. I roller...
  27. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    I say hybrid, because the light source is digital in the Epson (led), the Howtek uses old fashioned light bulbs (halogen, I believe). Also, the final image from the Howtek is not software...
  28. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    I believe you could. Have not tried it yet.
  29. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    Focus is number one. From there, scan at the highest resolution you can do and then do a 2x2 bin before saving. That takes a 6400 to 3200. Vuscan is the only program I know that can do that right...
  30. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    The way to reduce the ppi is to do a 2x2 binning. This is different than resizing in photoshop or other programs. 2x2 binning turns 4 pixels into a super pixel. Reducing the file using photoshop...

  32. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    I do agree resolution is not everything. What I see is the ability to reproduce subtle gradations and transitions across the spectrum. The V850 uses led light source whereas t he Howtek use a lamp...

    Two more examples. Both converted neg to positive tonight, no scaling or any attempt at color correction. Neither was sharpened during or after scan. I am still figuring out the profile/method I...

    I disagree on sharpening after scanning for comparison. The old saying crap in crap out. If your starting dole is degraded then all you are doing is masking issues and your final product will be...
  38. Poll: Re: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    No processing of either image was done ( no sharpening, etc). I use the betterscanning adjustable holder and set the height some time ago after testing with a target. Bit images are wet mounted as...
  39. Poll: Another Comparison of the Howtek VS V850

    Again,
    The V850 is an excellent scanner for its price and you cannot go wrong with it. So I am not bashing it at all with these comparisons. Part of it is me getting better on the Howtek and also...
