Pixel shift and DSLR film scanning?

has anyone tried dslr scanning film with the k-3/ k-3ii using pixel shift. Is this possible?

Should be perfectly possible as long as you have continuous lighting and nothing moves.

You can take pictures of anything that doesn't move. Note that a good lens would make a big difference. You could keep sizes down by using JPEG instead of RAW.

That is a fascinating prospect. You can't use a K-3 (feature not supported), but perhaps one of this site's K-3II owners will give it a try.

I'd be curious to know too. Would the increased resolving power simply allow you take better pictures of the image on the film or would I simply be getting more detailed grain structure? At some point more resolving power doesn't help the image. Still curious to know!

Wow... what a fantastic idea! I guess now I need to figure out how to mount negatives on the end of my macro lens.

Re scanning good film vs a DSLR, see this: https://www.onlandscape.co.uk/2014/12/36-megapixels-vs-6x7-velvia/

Scanners don't use Bayer filters so there are differences there, and you must account for dust removal, which is pretty important. It could probably work better with PS than without, but there are so many equipment variables that it's hard to say whether it would be worth it. For artwork you can't scan, however, it should be great.

There are a fair number of users that post to this sub-forum who do dSLR negative scanning on a regular basis with good success.
