How Do You Get Your Pics From Film To Electronic?

Sun Dec 15, 2002 12:08 pm

Hi everyone,

Just out of curiosity, how do you get your pictures from film to electronic form? I realize that most poeple don't use a flatbed, so how do you do it? Is there some other kind of scanner that you use? Thanks!

Some people use a negative/slide scanner and I actually ordered one myself so I could be able to scan them good. The reason I stopped scanning with a flatbed was that there was a problem with the photo not being straight and also with when it scans it. I also use a photo editing software called Adobe photoshop. If you want to look at the one I bought look at this post I made herehttp://www.airliners.net/discussions/aviation_photography/read.main/72218/ There are some scanners in there but I bought the Minolta scan Dual II. I hope it works well and makes great results. If you use slide or print film then you'll be allright with it. These scanners can be a little high depending on the brand and how fast it scans them(depending on scan time) and resolution(DPI). If you could mabye you can save your money for one and mabye a SLR camera if you don't have one. As for me I will be getting it shortly and I may post a pic here when I get the hang of it.

Hi,
I use Canoscan FS4000US and they come out very good, but when I scan Provia 100 slide, it is always has bluish cast. Does this happen to you guys, too ?

Provia does seem to have a very slight blueish cast.

Here are my film scans:

I use the Nikon LS-40. I have had it about a month now and am very happy with it. I also use Provia and it doesn't seem to have a blueish tint.

Of course if I could do it over I would have just waited and bought digital.
