Re: filmscanners: scanning automation


You can accomplish that, or pretty close, with Vuescan, the Nikon LS-4000
and the roll film adapter.  I still do a little cleanup on each picture, but
very little, especially if I turn on ICE.  The way I do it is scan at
4000dpi and let Vuescan down sample and convert to JPG at 7x downsample and
95%.  This results in a 851x564 image and about 230K.  Much better quality
than you need, so once I do a little touchup, I save them at about 80K.

I shoot a lot of film of my kids playing sports and this lets me build team
webpages very quickly.
