So the drum scanner fell through, if not completely because it weighed close to 500 pounds and it was not possible to dismantle it into any shape or form that could justify me moving it 700 km and dealing with it at the border. So instead I was going to be treating you all to a dump of all my color film scans before July 1 but.....I screwed up.
That's the mirror that fits inside my LS-40 negative scanner. Genius me missed a step in preparing to scan and didn't clean it. As a result what I thought was the result of abused and expired film (heavy grain and contrast problems) was really a scanner in dire need of cleaning......so some 200 scans ended up being useless and a month was wasted. Dx
I'll still commit a few of my stereograms though to keep on my word. Those were too large to fit in the Nikon and were put through a scanner which WAS cleaned.
