I have worked as a freelance photographer for many years and am now looking
to replace my b/w darkroom with a film scanner.
I shoot medium format (t-max 100) film and the end use is for high qualiy
glossy magazines and corporate publications, usually A4, very occasionally
A3. The scanner would only be used for scanning b/w negs at this point.
I am receiving conflicting advice from various suppliers as regards what to
Calumet, for example, tell me that the Nikon 8000ED would be more than
adequate for the purpose, whereas Digital Workshop say that the Nikon would
not be up to the job and I would need a Flextight III, at considerably more
So, first question; would the Nikon give me pin-sharp scans from b/w negs,
suitable for high quality publication, at least to A4?
Secondly, when the Nikon was demonstrated, the film was clearly not at all
flat in the holder. They told me that the scanner had enough depth of focus
to compensate for this. Is this true? They also said that, if it was a
problem, a glass carrier was available, but I can forsee all kinds of
problems with that, such as dust on the extra 4 surfaces, and newtons rings.
Any advice welcome.
