[filmscanners] Re: LS-8000ED on Windows XP



I am a commercial photographer, and made the decision to bring scanning 'in
house' as an option to my clients. I shoot for magazines, and for ad
agencies that run my stuff in collateral pieces that are printed through
commercial printers. My scans from the LS8000 are far and beyond the quality
needed for those end uses.

 Much more demanding is my use of scans to be printed for my portfolios, and
since that output needs to be 'photo quality' for 11" x 14" prints, I need
larger files/scans, and the LS8000 shines here as well. It has paid for
itself in the short 60 days I have had it just on scans for my 6 books
alone.

I don't want to get bogged down in the quagmire of semantics by quoting you
any specific figures as to my scan resolutions or printing DPI's/PPI's et
al, but suffice it to say that I am more than capable of obtaining razor
sharp photo quality portfolio images at substantially lower file sizes than
500MB. I output to both Lamda [for client level presentations] and an 1270
[for quick print needs for ad agencies and model portfolios]. I shoot with a
6x6 system [Hassy], and I rarely scan above 75MB file sizes for any of my
end uses. YMMV depending on your required end use, but I would be very
realistic on what you REALLY need file size wise, as compared to what you
THINK you need [end product determines the work path/requirements, at least
around here!]. And to that point, what can be actually realized by the final
output devise[s]. It makes no sense to pipe a 1:1 4000dpi image to a printer
who is running it through a 120 line screen off-set press.

You can write me off list if you want to know more specifics on how I manage
to get by!!

What type of film do you scan?  I got the 8000ED specifically because I want
to scan 6x6 MF images.  I calculate nearly 500 MB for a full scan of a 6x6
image.  I'll be using the PC for scanning only (no Photoshop, nothing else
on the machine), so hopefully 1 GB will keep it happy (?).  I still don't
know if I'll be able to work decently with images on my workstation machine,
which has only 384 MB (and can only be expanded to 512 MB).
