Have you guys already compared the 2 methods? Editing the files I can get the Plustek ones to look like the Frontier scans, but not the other way around. Order in the next 0: Patreon allows those of you who would like to support 35mmc on a monthly basis with a small regular donations. It is said to achieve dpi even at the dpi setting. Great thread and article. I also find I get a bit faster with each roll, figuring out what settings to tweak to get what outcome.

I scanned color film as RAW file plustem without any adjustments. Reply Carlo September 8, at 5: Colour takes it to around 31MB, although resolution is the same.

It scans negatives or positives at up to dpi, resulting in huge 60 megapixel files. Great thread and article.

Now whilst I consider myself a proficient computer user I am by no means an IT technician. As for settings I scan everything at dpi and output as an 8-bit tiff. But the Cyberview interface is no very inspiring… or inspired! Thanks for a great article.

But I probably must invest in a new camera and a Leica M-A with some lens would fit my needs pustek the next years as long as film exist.

Not fast but pretty accurate scans. Cuts down on the manual labor. The scanner uses a high resolution dpi sensor with bit color depth to capture all the detail from your originals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Neil from Excellent scanner for the price The quality of scans is a big leap from flatbed scanners such as the Epson I think its great that Plustek offer dedicated film scanners, and who knows, hopefully one day fuji and kodak will again see the merit in making professional quality film scanners.

A case for home scanning & the Plustek OpticFilm i – Guest post by KJ Vogelius – 35mmc

The SE version came with my Canon F flatbed but it is a right pain in the butt to use. Pretty accurate with film types. Continuing on the theme of discontinued film scanners, at least in USA, the Nikon Coolscans sell for a serious price on eBay. I’d prefer more and better info from 8200u, but overall you will be happy with what you get out of this product once you put some time in. But all the local alternatives have pretty similar prices for scanning.

After plustel few air blasts I rarely get more than a few spots per image. Given just how basic these items are, they are not renowned for top quality optics, I was quite surprised at the results. In the end, cyberview gave me a good baseline to start and with minor and fast tweaking in LRI was able to get the best results.

Frank Lehnen April 22, at 7: I have a v as well. But at what point does this occur? The problem is that Nikon, for example, is heavily into digital imaging capture and whilst the uptake in film is 8200o a company like Ferrania to re-enter the market, would Nikon see any point in producing a product what could make inroads to its camera devision and which is heavily reliant at present on its dslrs?

Maybe I should try this one. 82200i agree that in the unlikely event a dispute arises in connection with this Sweepstakes, it will be governed by the laws of the State of New York and heard exclusively in a court of applicable jurisdiction in the County and State of New York irrespective of any choice of law provisions to the contrary.

I currently have been experimenting with the Epson v flatbed scanner without much luck.

Pin It on Pinterest. With a few preset commands contrast is increased, sharpening applied, and exposure balanced.
