Plaubel Makina 67 with Kodak Ektar 100

A few images taken with the Plaubel Makina 67 camera using Kodak Ektar 100 film.

Autumn

The image above is a 200% zoom crop of the original image. I scanned this roll with my Epson V700 since the Coolscan 9000 has a serious hardware problem which makes scanned photos very mushy. At the moment, repairing it is not an option (it sure will not be cheap) so I use the V700. Being used to the fantastic scans from the Coolscan, the flatbed really falls behind in terms of quality (as expected). The only positive thing is that I actually get better colors with the Epson Scan software from the Ektar 100. I don’t have the Better Scanning holder with the Anti Newton glass for this scanner, so the film is not really flat and that affects sharpness. Since I still have my old Epson V500 with the Betterscanning holder, I will also give it a try and compare the results.

Anyway, here are the rest of the images.

    Konstantinos,

    Ektar is really exposure sensitive when it comes to color casts in highlights and shadows. But they are exaggerated during digital inverting due to the expansion of the color channel information. I recently experimented with use of ICC profiles that are dervived from IT8 slide scans and developed a workflow that seems to render quite pleasing results. Do you use IT8 calibration for your slide scans?
