[filmscanners] RE: My best scanner/film combinations



Given the convenience of slides and the fact I only like to carry one camera
around, I've been using Photoshop to extract B&W from my color
transparencies.

Just converting a color image to grayscale often doesn't produce a good B&W.
I have found that starting with a sharp color transparency film and creating
the B&W image from specific channels (along with the use of Channel Mixer)
works well.

I like the one camera, one film, one scan concept along with the convenience
of slide storage and retrieval.

There was also an interesting article in Outdoor Photographer a few years
ago about simulating infrared film effects from a digital color image.

This brings up another question. If one is scanning a color transparency for
the purpose of making a B&W, are there any specific adjustments to be made
at the time of the scan?

As someone has mentioned, slides are easier to store and look at as well.  I
use 3-ring binders to hold my slides.  My prints are all over the place in
boxes and envelopes.  (Hence the reason it will take me some time to find an
example to scan.)  But that has nothing to do with scan quality.

Has anyone found a favorite B&W film to scan?  I was shooting Kodak T-Max
and pretty unhappy with the results, but at the time my scanner had some
internal problems.  I've since shot Kodak Tri-X and as expected, it much
more grainy than the T-Max.  Again when I have time, I'll rescan the T-Max
and see how it goes.

Regards,
Jeff
