Re: Camera 'scanning' of negatives

For 35mm, I use my trusty old Plustek 7600 and for 120 film, I use my old Epson  Perfection  4990. For 120 film, I use an ant-Newton ring holder and glass, although the stock Epson film holder does OK. But when I once found Newton rings on my scan I bought the custom holder and glass.

The real secret to successful scans is in the software. Vuescan is cheap and it does an ok job. I prefer SilverFast software which allows a greater control over the final scan product In terms of sharpness , dust and scratch removal and color. I suppose the newer versions of each scanner do a better job, but my scans are really good and I'd rather spend my money elsewhere other camera equipment.
