  • The idea has ballooned. Just started with how to best reproduce a polaroid instamatic photo. Then just took off in my head. I like the idea of really good quality photo images. Colages on ...
  • I want to work hands on and to actual size, creating colage or compositions, then send them off to a photo lab to re-print actual size. A little photoshop, only to tinker and adjust before making ...
  • No. I'm artist who uses photography. I liked the idea of exploring Polaroid instamatics, which then led me onto reproducing them and then to the idea of building compositions with other elements.. ...
  • Oh no. My head is beginning to hurt.
  • So.. as my mind begins to work over-time. I'm wondering if A4 is a little restrictive size wise. Could the same quality flat bed scanner as the Epson V550 or V600 at 6400ppi, be found in A3?.. or ...
  • Blimey. There's always something else to consider, every step of the way. I'm actually trying to be spontaneous. That Newton ring thing had caught my attention and means I'll have to be ...
  • I'm trying to grasp some sort of understanding of what the process involves and how I reproduce something, photos, whole polalaroids, things, with the best, life like quality. From what you say, ...
  • Ok, I'll keep that in mind. I think I was trying to establish what quality a photo lab would scan at in order to compare it to the scanners I'm finding at 4800 or 6400 or 6400x9600 etc
  • Yes, I'm eyeing up a couple of scanners..err, humm err. You'll be surprised how may are unavailable due to the current issues, never mind finding one at a good price, So, if I took my photo images, ...
  • Thank you for the further in put. All getting a little more detailed than I'd initially planned for. It does still beg the question of a good quality scanner, capable of doing the job.. and at a ...
  • Hello Overank, we crossed over.. as mentioned, not too interested in negatives and the like As mentioned in my previous reply. I'll be scanning Polaroids as a whole, initially but also other ...
  • I'll be scanning Polaroids as a whole, initially but also other photos and things. Using them in a colage sort of a way. Then re-printing them via a photo lab. They'll be actual size. The scanner ...
  • Created discussion thread Photographic scanner?
    Hello, I'm based in Manchester, England. I'm looking for a good quality photographic scanner at a good price. One that does the one job well, rather than a whole range of jobs.. From an arty angle, ...
  • I didn't take your comment as harsh teejaywhy. I've quite enjoyed bouncing this subject around on the forum. I was a little concerned it would simply be poo-pooed, but not at all. I'll get my head ...
  • Mark, I am trying to think like an artist, which is why I bought one. Something to tinker with, however the plot thickens as I've now been alerted to the top of the range early versions by ...
  • Yes maybe I do misremember, or were better at correcting for parallax.. I'll keep practising. However, bearing in mind most of the shooting will be within 3 to 4ft, correction is a constant ...
  • I had an Polaroid instamatic in the late 80s 90s. Still have the pictures. There doesn't appear to be any wild off centring. Mostly fun photography, but I would have paused momentarily to check ...
  • Created discussion thread Polaroid instamatic off centre?
    I've just started tinkering with a Polaroid instamatic Now. The photos are all off centre. Quite a ways off centre. A little research tells me the Viewfinder and lens are not aligned and that this ...
