[filmscanners] Re: Recommendation for a 2 1/4 film scanner



My choice was

Nikon 8000ED

Vuescan Software (For sure not Nikon software)
www.hamrick.com  40$ Remarkable software!

Film for B/W - Fuji Reala 100 ASA Pro (color) -
converted
in chanelmixer of Photoshop to B/W.
Very wide EV latitude - a bit "flat" but I take
advantage of that changing in channeelmixer (insted of
using filter on the shooting spot) too boost use hue,
saturatin and of cause brightness/contrast.

If doing a picture over 60x60 cms - Use zone system
carefully and use a chrome-film - grain is less there.
Convert to B/W in. photoshop. But object must be in
proper light as EV latitude for chromes are less.
But when light AND a scilled photographer get *that*
*light* and can use it - it's outstanding - however
the chrome has to be able to be "shoot" and developed
so it contains all the subtile shadows - a hard task!



Zone sytem (Anselm Adams - but modifyied to "digital"
post prossesing in Photoshop)

My Camera is for MF Hasselblade only!!!!
I use Minolta Multi Pro - for 35 mm it has an true
4800 dpi resulution for 35 mm and 3200 dpi for MF.
(Here also the rule is, when going negatives - color
and B/W - Vuescan at http://www.hamrick.com )
For those going chromes - this is also a remarkable
scanner!

Bu you did ask for true 4000 dpi!

Fiat Lux! (Let there be light!)
and
