  • Dust and hard water stains shouldn't be an issue. It's always a chore to handle them anyway (IRL or within a software) but it's like washing dishes, for whatever reason, I find that relaxing :-) If ...
  • I imagine if I go that route I will have to find some sturdy system. I'm ok with taking time setting up the whole thing. As long as I don't have to take 15 minutes between each shot trying to make ...
  • Thanks for the feedback, the details and the great pictures ! I like the way you embrace the texture. Nice to know I can get there with the flatbed scanner. And yes, I'm still contemplating between ...
  • Yes, I'm looking for it actually. As long as it grain, not noise. I like texture in my pictures. I always have. And, for whatever reason, grainless pictures shot in the dark (long exposures) seem ...
  • I was talking about Silverfast. Many reviews I've seen say that upgrading improves the scan quality (by that I mean option to get better quality). But the ultimate upgrade is between 300 and 400 ...
  • Yes, that is the part I never really understood: the fact that a scanner can make multi passes. Is it supposed to reduce noise. That's what it's all about?

  • Not sure of it's the best method overall but it sure seems to be the most versatile and flexible. With flatbeds and film scanners, you get what you get. With a SLR, you cannot vary the resolution ...
  • Yes sorry, I wasn't precise enough. By spot metering I meant some kind of measure in the central area of the viewport. Center-weighted could be ok as long as that area is local enough. Using an ...
  • Created discussion thread Scanning negative films (35 and 120)
    Hi, I've read a lot about this topic here and in some other forums. I have to say that it's confusing sometimes because people (legitimately) tend to become very technical and it's amazing to see ...
  • Created discussion thread Nikon FM3a Vs Leica R7
    Hi, I am looking for a good film SLR but I have some requirements: -I need spot metering -I need exposure lock (I use that a lot) -I need to be able to read through the viewfinder in the dark (I ...
