[filmscanners] RE: Scanning old Lantern Slides



Apart from the probability that the lantern slides from 50 years ago are
probably in black and white and have a silver based emulsion, copying to
color negative film is probably a bad step for the reasons you suggest as
well as the fact that if it is used as an interim step, it will add
additional costs to the project.  You could copy the lantern slides to black
and white silver based films and then scan in those films. the cost will
still be there; but the longevity of the film would be longer and you would
get true black and whites as opposed to the brownish or bluish blacks that
you get from color films.

Charles,

The problem with that approach right now is that they want to archive the
images, and the dyes in color negative film are relatively unstable. A
digital file is good for a lot longer - as long as it is stored on good
media like MO disks or high quality CDR. Thank you for your suggestion.

Regards,

John
