  • One third the price!

  • Hello I use a optic cleaning product called Touchscreen Kleen, with a microfibre cloth, which is always kept in a bag. The liquid is I think iso propyle alcohol. You do not need to this very often. ...
  • Well, each to their own. I have very few problems with the V800 35mm frames and like the glass inserts that really keep the film as flat as possible. They do need to be kept clean, I think I have ...
  • My old Epson 4870 took 24 35mm frames in a 6x4 grid and the V800 35mm frame has a 6x3 grid, so if the software uses absolute frame positioning, then the scanner would need to told, which 35mm ...
  • Hello Perhaps the V700 35m holder is different from the V800 holders? The detection might be done by the position of the 35mm apertures on the V800 glass bed, in which case I imagine that the V700 ...
  • Hello In Lightroom take the highlights and whites to 0 In the curves dialogue, make the centre point read 45%/20%. This boosts the mid to highlight tones, non linearly and helps spread the tones. Y ...
  • Hello Here is my effort, just using the middle image, converted to DNG. LR6.8 One oval radial over the 'island', with a little exposure and warming it up. 80, 1 sharpening and distortion correction ...
  • Hello In Lightroom 6, the auto function, actually makes highlights worse. I press auto and then zero highlight and whites. I usually do this for white balance. Then I make a curve, by taking the ...

  • Also not a good idea to use child photos anyway

  • Hello I have been doing the same, but using a scanner. I would keep the NEF or DNG, but 'develope' the files to compressed Tiff or Jpeg at say 3000 by 2000 pixels, enough for a 10x6.66 inch print. ...
  • What OS are you using? I have Nikon scan 4.03 for Vista, but it also works on Win 7, not sure about Win 10. As another poster says try to get as good a scan as possible in Vuescan, but totally ...

  • I agree with this, it comes with extra holders and will do 18 negs as a batch or 12 mounted slides. Epson scan is very good and Processing RAW scans in Lightroom is also very usable, It also has ...
  • In Lightroom, you can use the curves tools, which are more powerful, than levels, as separate channels. Lightroom has very useful HSL channels, as well geometry, cropping and transferring settings ...
  • Why? If it gives the results you like, which is rare but does happen. Auto can give a starting point that can still be adjusted and is just one more step, than starting from scratch and takes no ...
  • Hello I suspect that your 'bug 'is a 'gamut' problem. The colour space in Lightroom is a variation of the Prophoto apace and can show many more colours and tones. sRGB is a much more restricted ...
  • I bow to your' Paragoness' and am in awe. MDE
