  2. How do you scan your 120/220 film?

    I am using a Nikon CoolScan V for 35mm with good results (need to boot Windows Vista to make it work. Yuk!)

    I have not yet found a good but affordable medium format, and large format (4"x5") scanner

    For larger sizes, I have been using an old CanoScan D2400U (and it needs Vista too) but is OK.

    1. Read halfway down this blog to read about my film scanning: http://visualsciencelab.blogspot.com/2011/08/academia-portrait.html

  3. Are you still shooting with b&w film? I do hope the answer is "yes." :-)

    My goodness, downsized for the web, it's obvious that there is a tonality and smoothness in this image that is so indicative of the old analog process.

    1. Ron I think similar results could be achieved with a good FF digital sensor and proper lenses ? I use NEX cameras and I notice that the final output is very lens dependant. I get a lot of lovely analog looking images when using good legacy glass...

  5. Thats great... (no other words come to my mind). I like that look and tonality you get from BW film. Looks like very good scanning work too..
