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.
