Informal posts regarding our photo and film scanning techniques and equipment. Resulting digital images show our level of expertise, attention to detail and benefits of using high end equipment.
Our Nikon scanner is a KodaChrome slide "specialist" with a dedicated KodaChrome scan setting. This slide film was introduced in 1935 and became very popular with photographers for it's brilliant colors and fine grain. Of course, other slide film can be scanned using the Nikon.
Our film scanner is able to detect dust and scratches and remove them from the capured image. Go to the Nikon Coolscan video showing the scanner in action. The Coolscan does an amazing job! The dust and scratch removal from the final image is hardware based using ICE. As a result, image quality is not compromised in order to remove dust and scratches from the image.
How handy is a slide feeder! I find the SF-210 works great. See a short video of this Nikon slide feeder in action. For the most part, the feeder can be left unattended after 50 slides have been loaded.
