Hi Ben
Yes i scan prints using a HP3400C but the print has to be very sharp.
I have got 67 accepted but a lot of rejects.
Cheers

Hi,

I am shooting prints too and a few of them are uploaded here most of them are rejected that is why i am considering to buy a scanner what can also scan the negatives. I have the same problem like Barrie in the previous reply. The pics come out with a very low quality when you use a normal scanner. I use a HP 3400C too and i can't wait for my new one.

Greetings
Mischa

Ben:
Search for Edwin Olinowetz in the photographers field. He scans prints AFAIK.

Edwin scans prints, and although he seems to have found a method that works, and a lab that gives him nice, sharp prints, I have to say as a screener that you can definately tell the difference (sorry Edwin). If you can afford it, and you plan to be serious about this little hobby, I would urge you to get a slide/film scanner if you can.

Hey Ben,

I also shoot prints and scan with a HP5400C. The results I'm getting are pretty bad, so I am hoping to go digital soon. Perhaps D30 if I can get a good bargain, but most likely it will be a F707.

I shoot prints, and I'm quite happy with them. I think the results are better then some people I know who shoot slides. Out of every 10, I get about 5 HQ, 4 passed onto Johan, and 1 rejected (usually a non-scanning reason) Although lately its been about 5 HQ and 5 "lost".  Pissed

I scan with a Cannon 650U.

I only shoot prints... and to go with that, my only picture was with an advantix  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

If I had the money (or any, really) I would upgrade.

I only shoot prints too. That is what I use only and If I do get enough money I'll buy a negative scanner. I saw one that was cheap but I forgot what place it was or catalog. I use a HP scanner. Here are my photos I made

I shoot prints as well.
I rarely use slides but since they dont scan well I shoot and scan my negatives using my S20 and it comes out 90% good quality.

All my photos at A.net are scanned prints. Some of the older ones are APS so the quality is really low.

Slide scanners are the only way to go. Also, Kodachrome film is the standard aviation film! Quality is what you pay with prints.

Just my thoughts.  Smile

All of my 1165 photos in the database are scanned from prints and I think it works very well.
There is no problem to get nice quality scans from prints even if you use a flatbed.
Check the two examples below.

Prints, Prints, Prints!!!!

Prints are great! And if you scan your negs your Scans will be great too. The bad thing even with high quality paper you only get about 300-350 dpi.

Slides look better, but there too much trouble for me. Long times to get them back, No corrections, One copy, allways need a light box or loop. plus Kodak has ruined too many rolls.

I too scan alot from prints. First you need to shoot with 100 ISO or less film. Second you need to find a good quality lab that will give you sharp prints. Most 1 hour labs will not do justice for your photos. I scan most of my prints with an HP S20. The S20 will also scan negatives. I have done test, scanning the same shot from a negative and also from the print and for me on my S20 there is no difference in quality. True maybe if I had a higher quality film scanner that might be different. Also I have my prints done at a pro lab that gives me fantastic results. If I was using a 1 hour lab, I would probably be getting better results from the negative.

I shoot using Fuji Superia 100 print film. I now have 335 pictures in the database. I have my processing done by Tony Best (AJ Best in the database). He always does an excellent job of them without chopping off tails and without washed out colours as done by so many photo processing labs nowadays. Its nice to have them individually printed rather than just pushed through a machine.

I scan from the negative using a Minolta Dimage Scan Dual film scanner (Cost £299 about 3 years ago). I also have an Agfa E50 flat scanner but the quality direct from the negative in the film scanner is by far superior to that from the print.

I shoot prints. Usually Kodak 200 in my Pentax ZX-30. I scan them with a Memorex 6142u flatbed. I want to upgrade to a negative scanner though.. any suggestions?

Here are some of my examples I got accepted:

Yes, I do  Smile/happy/getting dizzy But I have WAY too much to put effort (i.e. Photoshop) into my pictures. I usually upload during the summer when I have LOTS of time Big grin

Hi Ben! I've been shooting prints since I started our common hobby back in 1977 and although I've been watching this amazing site for quite a while I only started uploading some of my best pictures in the beginning of January this year. Meanwhile I've got 113 pictures accepted and they have been viewed about 87.000 times (775 per photo), which I'm a little bit proud of. I'm scanning my prints with a HP C6260A scanner, but I'm also considering buying a negative scanner. All the best. Gerhard Plomitzer gerhard.plomitzer@t-online.de

I also shoot exclusively prints. I have dozens of pictures from LHR, Montego Bay and other places. I do not have a scanner yet - I prefer a film scanner but that will be expensive. Once I can get a scanner I will try uploading some of my pix here.

Practically all the pictures I have on airliners.net are prints. But lately I have been using digital, and I suppose I'll stick to that, at least for a while.
