Scanning Torture (or Learning to Love Your Digital Camera)

I wrote these blog posts in 2013 and 2014 and then an update in 2019 (I have been scanning film since 1997 using 3 different film scanners):

Part 1: Scanning Torture (or Learning to Love Your Digital Camera)

Part 2: Over 10,000 35mm slides and negatives scanned!

Part 3: Update on scanning color negatives

I think many people here will find them very interesting. By the way, I found that the most satisfying scans were from B&W film, followed by color slide film, and lastly color negative film. Since 2000 I have been using the Minolta Dimage Scan Elite F-2900 with Vuescan. Here is info and a review of the Scan Elite:

Having said all that I enjoy working on my old film scans and can usually get pretty good results.
