  1. Re: question about using the 4x5 Epson scanner lens to scan 5.9" wide and stitch 8x10

    Hi Michael. I thought I had responded to your question of how to mount 4 x 10 on the Epson but it doesn't show u here, so here goes again

    Just wet mount the 4 x 10 on the carrier glass (the glass...
  2. Re: question about using the 4x5 Epson scanner lens to scan 5.9" wide and stitch 8x10

    For two-up 4 x 10. why not just cut the 8 x 10 in two?
  3. Re: question about using the 4x5 Epson scanner lens to scan 5.9" wide and stitch 8x10

    The carrier is what Epson calls a fluid mounting station. It came with the 750 but not the 700. It sits on top of a plastic base with a grid on it and you use the grid to position the neg and then...
  4. Re: question about using the 4x5 Epson scanner lens to scan 5.9" wide and stitch 8x10

    I haven't tried to stitch 8 x 10 but I have scanned 5 x 7 in the high res area of the 750 (Wet mounted on the glass carrier) so 5 x 8 will work just fine.

    IIRC in VueScan you can select the area...
  5. Re: Creo iQsmart3 and Supreme II scan speed

    I have an IQsmart 2 it deivers 4300 ppi and is as slow as molasses in winter - ie it takes forever. But the result is outstanding. I believe the IQsmart 3 delivers about 5500 ppi.

    If I run at...
  6. Re: More advanced scanner for 4x5 than Epson flatbed?

    Yes, one would assume that the high end scanners used good sharpening algorithms - perhaps the best available when they were built. Which was a long time ago.

    I've looked for sharpening artifacts...
  7. Re: More advanced scanner for 4x5 than Epson flatbed?

    I've used Kami on my Epson 750 - worked very nicely. Since switching to the IQsmart I haven't bothered. It seldom takes more than a few minutes to spot the photo in Photoshop. I once timed the wet...
  8. Re: Does any scanner have a 3 exposure HDR scan option?

    I think the IQsmart 3 and maybe Eversmart Supreme have a chip cooler.

    I have to manage with a mere IQsmart 2 - boo hoo. And I don't try to scan anything more than once - it's my job to get the...

  16. Re: Metering for Rollei IR400 using the R72 Filter

    I haven't used IR film in ages, but I remember that I didn't meter through a filter since the spectral response of the meter element is almost certainly not exactly the same as the film.

    Re: How do you digitize 8x10" sheet film?

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

    It's OK to say that it's my fault because I'm getting old - my wife always says things like that so I'm used to it - except she'd blame my brain instead of my eyes. (just kidding of course)
  26. Re: Scanner Comparison 2019 [Epson Flatbed | Eversmart Flatbed | Drum Scanners]

    I scan MF at 4300 (optical) on my IQsmart and 6 x 6 scans run around 500MB

    I think you meant 1GB, not 1TB

    By the way I often get 900MB files from 6 x 12. No issue working them.

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

    Is it just my old eyes or is the image a bit on the soft side??? (Nothing wrong with a soft image - I like it.) But if one is going to compare scans wouldn't a crisper image be better?
  28. Re: In 2019 where are we at with drum scanners?

    Hi Pere

    I also do a lot of MF - maybe more than LF lately, so the IQsmart works out really well for me since I can get a roll or two of 120 or maybe a roll of 120 and a couple of 4 x 5's or 5 x...
  29. Re: In 2019 where are we at with drum scanners?

    it's cheaper, higher Q and faster to shot 5x7 and scanning with an EPSON than shooting 4x5 and drum scanning, (if no dense velvia in the middle, of course...)

    On the other hand, a drum scan of a 5...
