Re: filmscanners: Re: Emulsion flaws (was dust in SS4000)
Hi Roger et al,
Interestingly enough, my best scans are from Provia 100F and 400F. I scanned
a few old Kodachrome 64 & 25's this afternoon and given their age (decades )
they weren't too bad. Compared to some recent Provia scans, they looked like
that ashtray's contents had fallen on them. Furthermore, when I spoke about
the micro-cracks I should have also included that I think airborne
particulate matter and fungal spores and any living organism can get into
the film layers. Perhaps pollution levels are the culprits here??
As a coincidence, Roger; I see your address at UNB and I know a Roger Smith
in the Chem. Dept. at Mt. Allison. Are you working at both campuses?
