haha i can't thank you enough for sharing your knowledge in this thread! Made my life so much easier - I won't be posting as often as you though haha it's somewhat a pain to get negatives develop here - I live about an hour from the nearest consistent place so will have to leverage the actual days i'm in the office to get it done and picked up.

Did some with my D700 today because the normal D800e was in the drawer, lazy me and they were just for email.

Results were wonderful and GRAINLESS from Bergger 400 film which is not nearly a fine grain film.
D3 and D700 are large pixel cameras that make wonderful prints . These are big and heavy and make prints like nothing else. Hard to find good ones today.
I also use the Nikon ES2 scanner rig.

some more recent ones...

so shooting [email protected] isn't the best item for indoor shots - had to do some more editing for the color balance.

Thanks Huss! I've been using the "linear deep" that you mentioned before and I find it to give me better starting point!

Just getting started with this method of scanning since my old Polaroid Spritscan 4000 died. I picked up a used port-a-trace LED light box, have a Sony A7r3, and a Canon 50 f/2.5 macro. It looks like I need to get an extension tube to get close to full frame with the 50. I have some negative holders from my Sprintscan for 35mm. Any recommendation for a medium format neg holder that keeps the film flat?

I think it was in this thread that I learned about Negative Lab. I still scan with a Coolscan but my color results have improved 10-fold since using Vuescan "raw" and NegLab.

Since the Cooscan is gettign close to its last leg, what would be a low-cost set-up to that you would recommend to get into camera scanning? I don't have any digital cameras that I can use (other than a Sony RX-100). I see people using DX and APS-C sensors so maybe an old DSLR could work? Then what, copy stand from ebay, slide duplicator, LED lightbox vs off-camera flash?

I found that a Macro lens is of utmost importance. Get a 50mm and don't worry about a slow f/stop. Some of these from the 60s are cheap, if you get a used DLSR try to match the mount of your lens.

to everyone in this thread, thanks for inspiring me to get started with DSLR scanning! i've been using the epson V series for 10+ years and have never really been thrilled with the results. excited to try a new, faster workflow this year.

if anyone's curious about building a simple yet competent setup: i'm waiting on a nikon D300 + 60mm 2.8 macro lens to arrive from KEH. it will sit on my cheap-o slik tripod and point down at a kaiser slimlite tablet w/ the digitaliza neg carriers. will post my results soon!

Lots of nice results on this thread! Thought I'd drop in my YouTube video on this in case anyone is looking for a super-simple way to get started (if you already have a macro lens)...

Love it, very creative!
But w/ re to the not needing more resolution, not true. With my Z7 I can print much bigger than with my D750. Because while it may still be showing grain, it is still sharper and it will not be showing pixelating effects as you enlarge.

FYI I also have that exact same PenF get up. I love that camera!

How to work with fixed aperture scanner lens? DOF is razor thin at approx f/2.8. Mounted chromes have too much bulge, focus anywhere, corners are weak. Shoot a stack moving focus around to the key points in image. Merge the focus stack in PS. Gives the best resolution short of stitching.



Original is a 1982 chrome, shot with Nikon prime handheld. Florence Duomo.

A lot of you seem to be getting less grain aliasing than I do. Not complaining, just think it's notable. From Sunday, using the new Ilford Ortho Plus film -- a lot less "ortho" than I had been expecting, but I liked the tonal range...

Try Silberra 50 if you want full ortho.
Do you have in camera and maybe also post processing sharpening on? That may be giving you the grain aliasing. I only see a problem when I use Flickr due to their resizing etc algorithms, the actual results that I print are fine.

are you scanning in jpeg? that can introduce artifacts. use raw.

No, I don't, and no, I'm not. The Flickr issue may be in play, though... thanks...

Flickr does some weird things. Sometimes I post pics and it makes them seem unsharp/pixellated etc

I like camera scanning for extremely quick turnaround.

I shot this on 4x5 last summer, developed it and stuck it still wet onto a lightpad I got from Amazon for under $25. "Scanned" wet with my D800E and a 55mm Micro:



I can "publish" film photos in under an hour if needed.

I did not read all 16 pages of posts so maybe I missed that part, but my question - what do you do with "dust and scratch" removal? The only option in post processing or...? Surely you can clean (or try to) dust before DSLR scanning, but not scratches. Surely, scanners also could not handle traditional BW dust/scratches, but for color film this is a lovely feature saving lots of time of post processing. I am trying to decide if it's worth moving from scanners I now use to digital camera, so it would be good to understand what are the "pain points" with camera vs scanner.

NLP on 4x5 BW negative. In 1965, I did a course "Creative Photography" with Minor White, who had just arrived on campus. One of the most educational experiences of my life, although that's not particularly evident in this image. Of course, he sent us out into the world with 4x5 and the Zone System.

For this cam-scan, I tried a superb enlarging lens, 80/4 APO Rodagon-N. That lens is OK but not fab for camera-scanning 35mm at 1x, but I think it's near the sweet spot at about 1:6 for this cam-scan of 4x5 to an APS body.

Processed in NLP 2.12, Frontier 3, Standard. NLP delivers a too-warm image. I simply adjusted the Temp slider after conversion to get the slightly warm look I prefer. (NLP does have a B&W option; that gives a perfectly neutral result as expected.)

I'm contemplating NLP and returning to the BEOON since the Plustek is so so slow and life is so so short!

Reading the installation for Windows (I'm running W8) the installation seems quite convoluted compared to Mac. Any experience in this matter?

PS that's a really appealing shot, colonel.

Nikon F + Micro Nikkor 55/3.5; scanned with A7RII + Micro Nikkor 55/3.5 at 1:2; inverted and processed in Capture One 20







Nikon S3 Limited + Nikkor 50/1.4; scanned with A7RII + Micro Nikkor 55/3.5 at 1:2; inverted and processed in Capture One 20 with some additional tweaking in photoshop. Color is really hard manually.

I find Kodachromes a tad tricky to scan, partly b/c of color and also b/c of contrast. The Nikon slide scanner I used to use had a Kodachrome setting.
These Kodachrome II images were shot with Nikon F and 105 nikkor, then scanned with a Sony A7R2 and an Olympus OM 80mm f4 auto macro on bellows. I find this lens has a very flat field and corners are sharp
