[filmscanners] RE: [film scanners] Re: Scanning old Lantern Slides



In the case of lantern slides, it is not how big are they as much as how
thick are they and how good is the emulsion that is painted on the glass in
an unprotected manner.  Remember were are actually talking about small glass
plate positives here sort of like the old glass plate black and white
negatives.  These may also be some issues with respect to scanning through
glass in terms of light dispersion and refraction as well as the capturing
of any flaws and faults in the glass of the lantern slide itself.

Have you looked at the Epson 2450. It probably doesnt have the dmax you
require but for the price its an excellent scanner for slides up to 5x4.

How big is a Lantern slide?
