Re: Re: filmscanners: Canon 4000 scanner VS Nikon LS4000
Thanks Bruce - yes, as soon as I started projecting Kchromes, I encountered
this problem, so I went back to the shop to ask how I could get them sharp
edge-to-edge on screen.. I ended up buying one of those curved field lenses (I
think it's a Leitz?) to suit my Rollei projector, and it gives stunning images.
If you have only ever viewed your slides on a mediocre projector/lens, you are
definitely missing an experience.. But of course you also quickly find out how
critical camera steadiness and lens quality are, as per Rob's comments.
