A few hairy ones from my side.
Those take me back. Going by where you live, do you know if my old primary school (early fifties) is still going strong - Henrik vanderByl in v.d.Byl Park?

Trying hard to emulate the lab scans with my flatbed scans, but it's hard work.. I scan maxed out with no color corrections to a large tif file then tweak like crazy in my raw editor and get as close as I can...

noritsu lab scan:


my epson 4870 scan:

Pretty Impressive results, based on my observation, your corrected images are very slightly warmer than the lab scans and either contrast/shadows are a touch stronger. But I mean really that is nit picking to the nth degree. If they were not side by side I could not tell.

The 67 100 macro f4 with life size adapter is a very sharp lens even wide open.



taken at max 1:1 magnification, with life size adapter. wide open. sharp wide open and rich colors and nice contrasty images, beautiful bokeh too.

Great shot Mike! Love the ZigZaz. What was the light source for that? Cars?

thanks Susan. I was sitting in a chair on a roof deck for these...made me feel a little guilty i wasn't wading in mud or clinging to some hillside iceplant for the shot. There was even a glass of wine below my tripod.

what do you use for editing ?

Looking very closely i would say : WB is few degrees too much yellow (100-150 kelvin to warm i guesstimate), your black are a very little hair lighter than the Noristu one, and your green are less green in the mid range.

Otherwise than those fine adjustement, you are quite good in matching the Noristu

Thanks... I use Rawtherapee and Gimp... So far it seemed much easier to me to match the two 120 images I posted above than 35mm scan I've been working on. Not sure why... I've spent a couple days now off and on trying to match the 35mm flatbed scan to the noritsu scan... Here's the closest I've gotten so far...It's Portra 160 film... My epson scan is on the right... My scan obviously looks warmer in some respects, but if I try to cool off the white balance it throws other things out of whack... I would love to know in detail how they process the noritsu scans at the lab.. It must be some profile that they run all the images through because they all look relatively similar...

Very wet in Venice so the 645Z hasn't left the hotel room. This was taken from my balcony:

645Z 28 - 45
