[filmscanners] RE: Scanning PMK processed film



Ken,

I have been using a tanning developer (DiXactol) for 18 months now. I scan
medium format on an Epson 1680 and 35mm on a Nikon Coolscan IV. My workflow
is to scan using Vuescan as an RGB positive (image setting) to produce a raw
file, channel mix in PS and invariably select 100% green channel (much
sharper), convert to grey scale, invert and curve.

The tanned negatives look 'thin' to the eye but scan easily. To my eye there
is significantly less 'grain aliasing' on the Nikon scans, certainly
compared to Perceptol developed negs. This may be due to the stain reducing
the interference pattern around the grain.

HI all -

A few people have convinced me to try developing in PMK, the
pyro-based tanning developer.  Having never done this, I'm unclear on
how the staining process works, or ends up looking, and how it would
affect a negative's "scannability."  Anyone on the list have any
experience doing this, and anything to report?


Ken
