[filmscanners] Re: Supra for scanning?



Hi Tris,

I've been using Supra 100 and 400 for scanning with my Nikon 4000ED, which
seems to particularly sensitive to grain/grain aliasing.  I've found the
grain to be more than I desire.  Some members of this list have recommended
slightly overexposing negative film by 1/3 to 1/2 stop.  Other members have
also recommended Superia, especially Reala 100 speed film.  I have just
ordered some Reala and Provia100F. I hope for some improvement.

What scanner are you using.  This may have some effect on the film you
select as the best option for low grain/grain aliasing.

I kind of like the look of Supra. Here's my most recent experience with
this emulsion, a medium-difficult night scene to catch with regard to
latitude.

Hope that helps.
