  2. I don't use travel agents myself as I always book the flights and accommodation myself but I would have thought the same rules would apply regarding flights booked via a travel agency in that if your destination goes on lockdown or the airline cancels the flight, they will offer you an alternative flight at a later date at no extra cost or a full refund. I would contact your insurance company first as they will know the exact legal position and wether the travel agency is correct in charging you an extra fee or wether they are pulling a fast one in view of the disastrous season ahead ...
  3. I also started out using this scanner Bryan and also had to switch off the dust removal as it tended to remove minor details such as peoples nostrils as well as dust. It was ok for medium format and 35mm at a real pinch although that was back then, not so sure it would cut it nowadays. The Elicar lens I mentioned in an earlier post is very sharp and they can be picked up on E.Bay occasionally for a very reasonable price ... copying this way isn't the quickest but then it doesn't really need to be if being selective with the negs and slides to copy. As this lens is designed for full frame, when fitted onto the Fuji, it allows me to crop a 35mm neg in camera .... I filled the frame copying a half frame original ! There are two on E.Bay at the moment .... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/elicar-90mm-f2-5/254443107933?hash=item3b3dfdb65d:g:1ZgAAOSw7TRd5-C2
  4. That's correct Harry ... I copy negs and slides using a copy stand, light box, Fuji XT1 and 90mm Elicar 1:1 macro lens in Nikon fit via an adaptor ... so the RAW files are effectively the maximum size the Fuji can produce. The grain is often visible at 100 % and often a fair bit of spotting is required ... but I feel it's worth doing properly and uploading via QC ... who, it has to be said, are switched on and can see that the file has come from film and they make allowances for that ... with the best will in the world, an original film image will not be as sharp as a digitally produced original image !
  5. I only use the archival route if I am not sure if the image is as sharp as I would like ... although still sharp enough ! All of my uploads from negs and slides are treated the same as all other uploads ... spotted and cleaned and happy that they will pass QC ... which they do ... and archival images are treated as if they are going to be looked at by QC ...
