Silverfast ai studio

Does anyone use this software to profile their scanners and printers?
Is it worth the €299.00 ?
Seems like a lot but am told it gives supior results than Vuesca.

Re: Scanning B&W with Vuescan - skill me up

Hi. The Vuescan Bible by Sascha Steinhoff, who created Vuescan, suggests that the negative is first scanned at 4800 spi to produce a RAW file, a .dng. Then this RAW file is scanned to produce the jpg/tiff file. Also this gives you a RAW file which can be used in A.N.Others RAW file converter softwar...

Re: Problem with Epson V700

Chris--if you are within striking distance of Salisbury I would be happy to bring my laptop and try Vuescan-if that helps.

Re: Problem with Epson V700

Hi This is just a guess but is it the scanner itself that is the problem or the software you are using. I have just bought the V850 and have 3 choices of software-Epson,Silkysomething or Vuescan. I use the Vuescan as I am familiar with it and it works for any scanner. If you have another software pa...

Re: Scotland, short term rental.

I can't recommend a place to rent for a few weeks but I do have a plot of land of approx. 0.4 acres at Eiden by Rogart in Sutherland which would be ideal to build a property to your own requirements. Post code IV28 3XD. John

Re: Maxwell focussing screens

George I cannot locate the PM I sent you but have removed my Ebony screen and can tell you it consists of 2 items. A plain rear glass plus a front (lenside) glass with centre focus spot, grid lines and the asymmetric axes lines. So does an Ebony fresnel lens come as a separate item and would it repl...

Maxwell focussing screens

I would appreciate any comments on changing the Ebony screen for one of those available from Maxwell.
I use lenses from 72mm to 360mm focal lengths.
Are they worth the expense in terms of ease of focussing especially with wide angle optics?

BJP 17 March 1988-reciprocity article

I don't suppose anybody has a copy of the British Journal of Photography dated the 17 March 1988. There is an excellent article on reciprocity failure by Derek Keeling. I am after trying to get a copy of the article as my copy has got lost over the years. I used the data from his article when I work...

Re: Fuji Pro 160S 5 x 4 sheet film

Sal--I have seen this data sheet but it only shows a 1/3 stop increase for exposures up to 4 seconds. I am interested in exposures up to say about 1 minute. John

Fuji Pro 160S 5 x 4 sheet film

I have just bought a Lee filters Little Stopper for use mainly with the above film. However the data sheet for this film is totally useless for any information on reciprocity failure for long exposure times. Does anyone have any practical experience of this film for long exposure compensation that t...

Paul's reply makes sense. I've been watching weather forecast which is not good. It is a 1.5 hour drive for me so I will leave it till Sept. Sorry. John
