Scan large format color or B/W negatives & transparencie

Given the size and presumed resolution of the 8x10" negatives, it seems like any of the good flatbed scanners such as Epson's Perfection 3200 Photo should do an acceptable job for editing in any good photo editing program.

Scanning 8x10" negatives

Postby Anton Safer » Sun Jan 02, 2005 7:39 pm

I would agree that the Epson 3200 scanner is a good choice for this task.
Anyway the backlit area of this scanner will not really scan the whole area, just about 4x10", since it is dedicated for 2 parallel 35 mm film strips.
It might be wort to try another way to scan the neagtives:
put a white sheet of paper in between the nagative and the scanner cover, and scan the neagive as if it were a positive.
Then use the positive-negative inversion and picture correction facilities of picture processing software to adopt the positíve optimally.


Use a digital camera

Scanning 10x8

Hi I have a old Umax 2400s with a lid with built in light source which I have found fine for scanning large format.
But another way around your problem is to use a scanner with a smalller hood, make several scans of different sections of neg and join in photoshop ( or any editing program)
