Good result.

Thanks Keith, I think the EM5 Mk1 does a fair job using an enlarger lens stopped down for corner to corner sharpness (not owning a macro lens). Quicker too than using a dedicated scanner with awful dedicated scanning software.
Here's another:

Bet you didn't not hang around after that last shot Steve. Not a happy bunny by the looks.

Well captured technically and bravely...*chr

More often than not I have the camera primed for action, pre-focused using zone (f8 and be there) and exposure predetermined and set (I take two readings, i) in sunlight, say, and ii) in shade, remembering to adjust the camera as I meander from side to side).
I'm quick when taking street, just a matter of framing using the viewfinder and clicking, no delay. I'm then off without further ado. Also I was keen to get the film developed. No chimping, love it.

Steve - can you describe (perhaps with some photos) your rig for doing the "scanning"?

Will do Paul. The next time I do some camera-scanning (shortly, next few days) I'll take photos of the set up with a description of my settings and post processing. It's a doddle, so quick. I can scan a roll in 10 to 15 minutes.

That would be really helpful. The scanner I have (a Plustek) really isn't that good and the software with it (SilverFast) is absolutely awful.

Most recommend VueScan, it's so much easier I believe.

'Scuse my ignorance but I'm not sure what you mean vy scanning in this context. I know what it means on my 3-in-1 printer; I can get it to scan whatever is on the platen and create a JPG on a memory stick or similar, but this seems to be different. Is it somehow a photo of a photo?

Ricoh 23rd November 2017 09:26 AM

Re: Camera scanned with EM5
 
Yes, precisely. The negative (or positive) is photographed using a camera.

Presumably in order to convert from print or film into digital so it can be edited or shared to digital channels?

Mainly photographs of negatives (or slides) for social distribution. Scanning is generally believed to be superior, and with a good scan a silver gelatin print can be possible. (A device similar to an enlarger projects the light pattern from the digital record). Going back to good old darkroom techniques, projecting a negative onto photosensitive paper was in fact taking a picture of the negative - think about it.

Very nice results I too would like to see how your setup is Iv just being going through some of my negs I have a flatbed with a neg tray but its far to slow.

By comparison, here's one using the Plustek 8200 scanner producing a 'raw scan' using SilverFast.
