Notice the difference of the outline of lint mark by the “No trespassing” sign. Great experience This scanner is awesome. Kodak BCN c41 scans really well also. The results from the SilverFast product are exceptional. However, you will have to manually reposition for each frame rather than being able to feed 6 at a time. It’s been easy to scan the negatives to approximate the look of my prints from TMX – well, other than the artful dodging, burning, etc. Our easy to understand movies explain everything in detail.

To me it’s similar to the difference between a condenser and diffuser on an enlarger. In fact, I’ve gotten better results scanning TMY pushed to coolsdan, I know than trying to enlarge those ghostly thin negs conventionally.

TMY scans pretty well too, even when I’ve pushed the dickens out of the stuff. Has throughput time reduced significantly? On the other hand, some of those types are pretty inexpensive so it might be worth the risk. Vuscan works good, but not great.

The highly collimated light source will outline every dust particle and surface defect. I’m keeping the v though for the day i get my mamiya RZ or a fuji 6×9. Maybe I’m just a slob.

That’s a lot from half-frame 35mm.
