Re: Camera scanned with EM5

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...

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.

Re: Camera scanned with EM5

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.

Re: Camera scanned with EM5

'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?

Re: Camera scanned with EM5

Yes, precisely. The negative (or positive) is photographed using a camera.

Re: Camera scanned with EM5

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

Re: Camera scanned with EM5

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.

Re: Camera scanned with EM5

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