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.

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

Better than the web image....

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.

Outstanding! Beautiful work.

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...

Another masterful portrait, thank you Kirk! You are an inspiration for every aspiring photographer.

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..
