    Gauging interest in scanning service based on DT Cultural Heritage Phase One system

    Hello all,
    I'm looking into a business idea of getting this system and wanted to know who would be interested in getting their film scanned with this system.
    I'm not interested in debating superiority or advantages of scanners.
    To my knowledge, this looks like the most advanced system to date, and is there a market for photographers who want their film scanned at high resolution?

    I've seen other offers for high quality scanning services that charge an arm and a leg for 1 photo.
    I'd go with a pricing options that would be afforable to most everyone.
    in the neighborhood of $5 -10 per negative.

    Thanks for your feedback.
    sincerely.
    Ken

    Those links seem to indicate the hardware is an optical 'instant capture' system rather than a scanner.

    The DT system is indeed built around a medium format digital camera.

    Does anybody offer scans, then Digi Prints and lastly Digi Negs for alt printing by shooter later?

    Just thinking out loud, as usual

    My question is rhetorical for OP to think about...

    That is clever. In that case one could do the 'scan' of the original scene and do away with the film.

    This is a phase one camera on a dedicated copy board , I too have interest in this system for my client base.
    It is a lot of money for a device to only scan originals,, but it can do any form of copy work including books if you purchase the right setup, it also can be useful as a regular shooting camera... something I do not want to do , so its much pricer option to get in the game than the scanners
    I already own.
