Yesterday, I reported on using pixel shift on the GFX 100S to scan negatives. There is another way to increase resolution, and that’s stitching. I turned the camera into portrait orientation and performed a two-view set of captures for stitching. This meant that the 4 inch dimension of the negative was imaged to about 40… [Read More]
In my last post, I showed you results obtained by scanning TMax 100 6×6 (cm) negatives with the GFX 100S both with and without pixel shifting. Today, I’ll do the same with 4×5 (inch) negatives. Here’s the “scanner”. From left to right: light source, negative carrier on Cognisys rail, lens shade, Rodenstock HR Digarono 105… [Read More]
I’ve been scanning up a storm with my new home-brew GFX 100S scanner. I’ve been getting what I consider to be good scans — certainly as good as I was able to get with my now abandoned-and-unsupported-by-the-factory Imacon Precision III. But I wondered if I could get better ones if I used the GFX 100S… [Read More]
I’ve received a request for crops at 100% magnification of some of the images that I showed you in the last post. Here they are, together with the whole frames. Note that the JPEG compression used on this site will obscure details.
In the last post, I walked you through my new system for digitizing silver negatives. In this post I’ll show you some scans. These are all from a series I did in the late 80s in the hills above Stanford University. The idea of the series was to explore the relationship of nature and technology… [Read More]
