Re: filmscanners: Best film scanner, period!!!
It is probably the weak point in the process, but it was a matter of
I did try to minimize the "damage" by using a Navitar Gold lens, which
is one of the best there are for projection. Still, I would agree it
degraded the images. Trying to see a full image with a loupe,
especially when there were about nearly 150 frames, is asking a lot of
anybody, even photographers, so we decided to make it a more enjoyable
evening by projecting the images. At least each slide was probably
equally prejudiced against. I did a loupe example prior to putting the
trays together, and I was unable to see a real difference in sharpness.
