Re: B&W now using Nik software

I loved using Panatomic X but it had an ASA of what 32? I wanted the sharpest film I could find, and shot with it, but as I began to shoot more action I went to Tri-X at 400. I shot for a weekly and when they told us that we could no longer shot with a flash unit at the high school I started shooting with a 3,200 ASA film. Talk about grain, it looked like a snow ball fight going on. Now that I am using the Nik software, I have found my old friend Panatomic again. Use my tif files and run them though the software, and have these fine (no ) grain images. I have just started doing this and I love the speed in which you can convert an image.

I have started scanning old negatives, and I can scan maybe 500 in a day, and a lot of it looks really bad. Still these are files that go back 45+ years, and it has taken me back like a time machine.
