Recent threads about scanning prompted me to: update my ancient copy of Vuescan (bless Ed Hamrick); get my Canon FS4000 out of the cabinet where it's been sitting for 15 years; hook it up via USB; and run a couple of random slides through. Darned if it didn't work! Darned if it didn't also remind me of the perils of trying to clean up slides, before and after scanning. And how slow it is. Back in the day, I connected it via SCSI, but I can't say that the USB (2) connection seemed any slower. So: What do you use to clean up slides before scanning? Any tips on maintenance/cleanup for the FS4000?
I have a Epson V700 scanner with which I used to scan 6x6 transparencies and 6x6 BW negatives ten years or so ago (using XP windows). I haven’t touched the scanner for now maybe good 6-7ish years. I am now thinking about shooting films again occasionally for pure pleasure. (Everybody deserves some pleasures in life, doesn’t he? ) Of course I will continue to shoot digital for stock. I would like to ask a few questions to seasoned scanner users as follows. (Now I use a iMac Sierra (10.12)) This morning I downloaded Epson’s latest software/driver for V700. The interface doesn’t seem to be evolved at all and it looks the same and rather dated. Does the current ‘Digital ICE Technology’ work better than say 5-6 years ago? I was not very successful with this feature before, but I am wondering it has been improved over the intervening years. Is SilverFast far superior to Epson’ own software? If so, SilverFast SE 8 will suffice? Or SiverFast SE Plus is required? Is SilverFast’s iSRD better at getting rid of dusts than Digital ICE ? What used to get me down with scanning was dust removal. Replies and any tips and advices will be very much appreciated. Sung
Hi First post from a long time lurker. When I upload jpg files from negative/transparency scans I find that the uploading process takes much longer than native digital files - even when they are approximately the same compressed size. Is there any reason for this and can I do anything to remedy it? Thanks.
