Sigma 150-600 lens on SD1M-user proved 1/60,1/30 even 1/20-shots handheld. so these more 4.5 stops-stabilizatiion would not surprise me anymore.

On Delkin introduces new 'Black' range of rugged SD cards article (54 comments in total)

samsung has also solid cards with additional protection. card-protection: I only know the 4-cards-gepe-box to best supersolid gepe cardsafe extreme, 1m waterproof, hitproof and climaresistant.
Card-safe duo is less resistant and much cheaper, the extreme is it too...
But the cheap Duo can swim! Delkin has SD and CF-card-boxes where the inner parts are compatible.

Here they say 6x12-2 frames and 4x5- 2 frames. which is wrong:
see here the two holders: 1 frame for both

Direct link | Posted on Oct 23, 2014 at 10:39 UTC as 5th comment

I compared(interpolating the new holder) with the 6x12-holder of epson 4990 and its 8x10 mask(see below for details).
both are 29cm measuring the lenght at center where it ends where the calibration windows is sitting: 290mm.
Same size: How big are 750-holders?
good of the 4990 holders is panorama-film is monted sideways. so long stripes can be mounted which. in 750-holder would cover the calibration windows ontop.
4990-8x10-"holder" is not a holder but a white film-cover of 24.2 x 32.3cm
mask is of identical size outside like the 6x12 holder. inside 8x10. so film is placed directly onto the glass. So 8x10 on 800/850 should be no problem. in umax 3000 which had a dual-lens system there was a smaller space(film-gate) which delivered higher resolution than the fullsize.

AJDVD: I use the Epson 4490 which is older than the V700. I compared the scans from the Epson with my labs drumscanner. I used a Rolleiflex (6X6) and 3 films..... Kodakchrome 50 (old)/ T-MAX 100 (for its density in blacks) and NPS-160i from Fuji for skintones).
I scanned them myself with the Lomo negativeholder. Even at 400% the difference on a calibrated monitor where very small. There where small differences on the some edges but even there it was more a matter of taste then a difference in quality. Colorbalance was slighty better on the drumscanner but easily corrected in PS. Main difference was the black and white film. The Epson couldnt produce such a nice tonescale or density as the drumscanner.That said I think even for more demanding amateurs you get nice results with the Epson. But I compared a print from the drumscanner on an pro Epson printer with a handmade analog bw print......then I started to cry.......you probably know what I mean.

kodachrome 25 or 64 right?

vscd: A real density of 4 on a flatbedscanner? Would be awesome. I can't believe real optical 6400 dpi eighter.

Please let it be at a good price..

1200 chf for the 850

There are better alternatives on the way-better image-quality- if the main advantage is not needed.

The mistake they made with transparent plastic causing reflexion will be removed with the second version when we have spent all our money with the first one...Really crazy not doing it right from the first step. At least inner sides MUST be black! Maybe not an easy task.

In reply to:

bart honhoff: Ferrania is always considered to be in quality behind the big four (or before Fuji became available outside Japan) the big three (Kodak, Agfa and Ilford)

That said, it is always an good thing to have competition.

For grainy shots a lesser quality film like Ferrania is great!

I still love the pictures I took with OrWo film in the seventies in low light.

So with ORWO you were in the same LowQuality-league like the Ferrania.

They should offer 120-sized 30m rolls so we could configure 220-films. Plus offering back-paper. Pls no moon(aka fantasy-)prices like ilfords B+W 70mm BW.

1969 was also my first photographic year. With Kodak Instamatic. 1971 my first and only 747-roundfligh with Swissair over Switzerland towards Genoa(Italy), but then with Exakta VX1000, one year before making the big step towards the unique Olympus OM1.

Superka: Epson V750 true optical resolution on film is 2300dpi. Too poor for film scanning.
I doubt v850 will be better. It is not a film scanner.
Used Nikon Coolscan, Imacon, Minolta, Plustek - that are film scanners.
6400dpi on Epson is a bad joke.
Can you compare it to Imacon 6300dpi? Here is what Imacon can at 6300 (24x65mm Xpan frame)


Neither Epson user have ever saw this resolution on 135 film.

Plustek MF120 does not exist...

In reply to:

fmian: 'Dual lens system for optimised film (6400dpi)'

Highly inaccurate and misleading.
I don't know why companies can't list the true resolution...

Braun FS120 is the PrimeFilm 120 Pro by PacificImage. Plustek Opticfilm 120 can scan 6x12 in single stripes but unfortuanately not longer panoramas. At least with v850 and other it can be done using special holders or not(4990). with 4990 holders take up film sideways, not covering the calibration window on the smaller side when panorama-stripes are longer than the holder.

Wye Photography: I have the v700 at home and access to a v750 at work. During a quiet time a couple of years ago I did extensive tests on both with the same negatives and found that the v750 is a tiny smidgin better. It's obvious that if you are already a v700/v750 owner, then upgrading is probably a waste of money.

Overall, I am very pleased with my v700, I scan mainly 6x6 negs and they are excellent. I also scan 35mm and half frame and obtain very good scans that produce more than acceptable A3 prints.

Silver fast is pants. Two months after I bought my v700 I upgraded my system software (MacOS) SF then failed to work with it and after months of waiting and trying SF updates which still didn't work, I gave up. Epson - get rid of that rubbish!

The amount of detail in the highlights that can be rescued from Kodak Portra 400 when using the v700 is just amazing.

It would be great if the v800/v850 film holders fit the v700/v750

Do you pull-develop the overexposed portra 400 then?or does that depend how contrasty the scenery is?
