Christian Mineeff has, IIRC, appeared in this thread before in his evocatively liveried Pilbeam MP43. Preparing here for his first run up the hill at Shelsley Walsh yesterday.

I've just read through the first few pages from when I started this "Photographers' Thread". Back then there was plenty of discussion; not all of it from photographers; it was very interesting and informative, unfortunately our conversations seem to have dried up, which is a shame. 

 

So: this past week I've been confronted with the "disk full" nightmare. When I bought a pair of 1tB drives a couple(!) of years back I thought that was me sorted, however newer cameras seem to be racing towards utterly un-needed file sizes (my camera which produces the best quality images is a 2004 Leica Digilux 2, with all of 5 mega-pixels but a superb lens).  About six months ago I could see which way the wind was blowing and bought a pair of 5tB drives in a sale, these things are ridiculously cheap nowadays, put them in a drawer and forgot about the impending day.

 

Hit the buffers last week, so I decided to clone all 200k+ images on the full 1tB drive to one of the 5tB ones. 17 hours it took. Imagine my surprise when I looked at the new drive and found that it was full! Schoolboy error: it did just what I asked and made an exact copy, including maximum capacity of 1tB! Doh.

 

I deleted all the photos (10 mins!) and then cloned the empty 5tB disk to the one I'd buggered up; back to square one. This time I just dragged and dropped my entire photo archive from the 1tB drive to a 5tB one- fifteen hours later I had all my photos on the new drive, with 4tB free space. Then I cloned this to the empty disk- happy days, two copies of everything.

 

So; time for a photo of real racing:

Sadly, Pete, there was too much bickering early on and it drove some away.

 

I do know I spend serious time on exhaustive tech posts, only to be told it was on the wrong thread and/or to denials by some who had no clue about photography at all. I'd have bailed long ago if not for a few on here, like yourself, and David, and more who are now gone.

 

Thanks for carrying the flame. I'll probably post again once my images are done, but my scanning and image maximizing posts have left the building.

Eric,

In the last few months I've spoken (face to face) with several long-timers here who have decided that this place is expiring, if not dead in the water. Facebook seems to be much more easy to do. I can't argue with that, the software here is clunky and, as things move on, perhaps the only folks left here are heading for the dinosaur category? I'm willing to give it a bit of a bash for some while yet.. but...  after that, I'll see you in the future,

maybe...

Well, I'm still lurking here - don't know if that's a good or a bad thing bu we dinosaurs should stick together (if only to leave some coprolites for the future).

 

Semi related, I was chatting to a (respected) pro photographer last week and, maybe inevitably, got onto the subject of scanning old photos. He said that he'd given up using a dedicated film scanner and instead re-photographed them with a high-end DSLR, which gave him the file sizes he wanted, with none of the occasional hassles of some scanning software.

 

Well, if it works for him, fine, but personally I'm not entirely convinced. Any thoughts?

I know someone who uses a DSLR to copy film images, That method works well but has its own "occasional hassles." It is easy to get the file sizes you want using a scanner.

As for the issue of filling drives, my one fear (among a few regarding digital storage) is that when a drive fails you lose it all. Losing 1TB is better than losing 5TB. My computer mad son says that if there are not three separate digital copies of a photo then the photo does not exist. And one of those copies should be on a disc (DVD, BluRay). This leads back to my issue with losing files. Damaging a DVD is far less a loss than damaging a BluRay.

I tried that approach, proper Nikon slide holder and bellows setup, but gave up in the end, I just couldn't get acceptable results, even illumination of the subject slide was the main problem. I had a Canon flatbed scanner at the time, and the results from that never satisfied me either, results lacked crispness, and it was painfully slow. Eventually I admitted defeat and went the expensive route, as I should have done in the first place, a Nikon Coolscan V. This was a revelation after my previous efforts, not slow and a perfect result every time. I had hundreds of old slides, through age, not all of them in the best condition, and once I'd got the hang of the software, not difficult at all, the repair function is magic. The only problem came when I got a new 64bit W10 computer, the Nikon scanner software didn't work at all. I had my IT expert round a couple of times, and eventually between us, we found a patch that worked. I think Nikon disappointed a lot of the more died-in-the wool photographer users by refusing to provide a fix or updated software for their scanners, though with the near takeover of digital, they stopped producing their scanners many years ago. The result is, that well looked after examples still fetch very good prices today, but I'm hanging onto mine.

Oh sure Tony, just when I retire from Tech Talk (like Tool Time, but funnier).

That's exactly what I have been wanting to try ever since I drove away from my slides. One, Ahem, "clear" advantage is having a few mm of depth, which scanners do not -- a saving grace on heat-buckled cardboard mounts.

For what it's worth, it really has been a pleasure knowing a lot of you guys. Even the damned dog. ;-)


Rob, the Nikon software -- presuming you mean the Digital ICE -- really is magic. I, too was quite disappointed when support stopped, Mine's a 5000ED with the bulk loader, now in a storage cabinet next to an old laptop needed to run it again... well down the road.


David and Ardmore, Thanks for posting photos. Always a pleasure!

Re scanners, for my elderly Canon CanoScan 8800F, I came across VueScan software from Hamrick Software which provides drivers for a wide range of scanners with decent reviews on the net. IIRC I paid a one time fee and now it is regularly updated - including most recently to Catalina. The latter is more than Polarr have managed so far for their photo processing software ...

Stripped to the waist wouldn't be a problem, but only if it was from the top down, and not from the bottom up.

 

On my previous post on Nikon scanners, a short term 64bit fix was some software by the name of Viewscan Professional. After a bit of fiddling this worked fine, but eventually my IT guy discovered an effective fix for the original Nikonscan stuff, so now I'm back on that. It's the best solution, everything works perfectly again now, just like the old days.

(Edit: the software, not the thrill of dog photography)

Well, maybe not... six file cabinets of film in the van would tax what's left of my mind.

I did try the Silverfast software for my Nikon. While great software for bigger film, I found it less speedy than the Nikon original. With time I'd think it fine but think you've found the better way.

So far as uses for the dog, tripods need to be steady.

Perhaps you knowledgable chaps could please help me?

I have loads of photos, mostly 6" × 4".
I would eventually like to scan them, not for any professional reason but just as a 'back up'.

Could you advise me on any scanner spec I should look for or models which will not break the bank?

(There's a free glamour shot in it for you...)

I can't give an exact answer regarding current goods, but I used an old Epson 2450 for this. I lay a chrome tape border to size, dead square to eliminate having to rotate and square and re-crop. Could be dead wrong on diagonal-specific, but my gut tells me rotating any image any amount compromises clarity after being square to begin with -- not a factor unless going big. I like adding a thin black page above the print and tape to avoid any chance of light leak -- despite the scanner having a cover -- as light edges on a scan suck.

One way to know is what you want your final size to be. If say 8x, I mean 10x8, calculate using 300 pixels per inch as a standard x 10" = 3000 pixel capability on the long end. I'd think such a unit would be maybe $200 now, especially if it needs no film scan capability.

Ultimately you would be way better off to scan the negs, if:
-- You have them
-- You wish to have no life
-- You promise to never post a selfie


Edit: I do like Epson a ton so would personally start there.

Plus they sponsored Ken so helped bring Alesi along early on. ;-)

Not only is this thread alive and well, the same appears to be true of winter rallycross. Once as much a part of Britain's sporting landscape as Royal Ascot or Wimbledon (to my eyes, at least), it has this year quietly been reintroduced - and this is from the second of four scheduled events at Lydden Hill. Ray Morgan (Escort Mk3) and Vince Bristow (mildly sideways 3-series) give vain chase to the Escort Mk1 of Jos Sterkens. The next episode is scheduled for mid-January. Highly recommended - and the charming paddock café serves excellent mayonnaise-laced chips for £3.50.

You also mention the Leica Digilux 2, which a current (and obviously cheaper) equivalent, if I got that right, would be the Panasonic Lumix LX100 II, with a very good Leica lens. Am I right?

 

I picked up a Lumix DC-ZS70 a few weeks ago. Nature pics at our lake were great. Took it to Road Atlanta over the weekend. A friend was running the NASA event. I wasn't expecting it to be a direct replacement for my dinosaur Minolta 7000i film camera. I was pleasantly surprised at just what it was capable of.

(Edit: the software, not the thrill of dog photography)

 

 

 

I emailed my IT friend Dave earlier to ask if he could remember how he managed to get the NikonScan software working properly on my newish 64bit computer, which had been functioning more or less OK for a while with VueScan Professional, and about half an hour ago at 10.35pm, he replied and suggested this.

 

https://downloadcent...load/sw/20.html

 

There was one other suggestion, to look for something else in my Downloads folder, which I think might be this one below.

 

S-CNX2_-226WF-EUREN-32BIT_.EXE

 

It must have been a year ago, maybe longer, when he did all this, and I don't remember anything at all about it, he was dealing with some more pressing issues at the time, and I don't remember him saying very much other than "Try this fix for your scanner". Probably like most of us here, I'm far from a genius where tricky computer stuff like this is concerned, but I'm never shy about getting proper help from people who sort out problems like this for a living, they're worth every penny. No guarantees here of course, and I imagine you'd also need an original disk with all the NikonScan stuff on it, but Dave is a skilled IT professional who really does know what he's doing, so give these a try.

 

My invoice for consultancy work will be following along soon...

I would steer clear of EPSON as their warranty only provides you with a repaired second-hand scanner should yours require the intervention of an engineer. I had been struggling to get their EPSON Perfection V550 Photo to function (it is nearly a year old but suddenly started misbehaving on slides and negs) so reported it to the shop I bought it at. They in turn pointed me to EPSON. After a month of emails and scanning and rescanning they sent me a replacement that was equally buggered! I am now struggling to get them to replace the replacement. I have continually asked for a full refund but they don't give refunds only repaired second-hand tat!

One of the marshals suggested that Jan 18 was likely, David, and that the final event will be in Feb, but I'd keep an eye on the Lydden website for confirmation.

 

If I hear anything, I'll let you know.

I would steer clear of EPSON as their warranty only provides you with a repaired second-hand scanner should yours require the intervention of an engineer. I had been struggling to get their EPSON Perfection V550 Photo to function (it is nearly a year old but suddenly started misbehaving on slides and negs) so reported it to the shop I bought it at. They in turn pointed me to EPSON. After a month of emails and scanning and rescanning they sent me a replacement that was equally buggered! I am now struggling to get them to replace the replacement. I have continually asked for a full refund but they don't give refunds only repaired second-hand tat!
:mad: :down:

You can steer clear of Epson, but what were you expecting for a $200 film scanner?

I scanned close to 5,000 images with the 2450, then realized upon seeing what Nikons were giving that I'd asked too much of the 2450 on 35mm slides -- which I think was $500-ish 17 years ago. I begrudgingly (!) re-scanned every slide, but the 4x5 scans were and are still very usable.

The V750M-Pro "wet mount" scanner I replaced it with just for 4x5 film scans blew the doors off anything any lab had ever done for me. I recently made a 90x90 trade show print from one.

I've never had an issue with either, but as we know Luck can be a cruel and indecisive beast.

I emailed my IT friend Dave earlier to ask if he could remember how he managed to get the NikonScan software working properly on my newish 64bit computer, which had been functioning more or less OK for a while with VueScan Professional, and about half an hour ago at 10.35pm, he replied and suggested this.

There was one other suggestion, to look for something else in my Downloads folder, which I think might be this one below.

It must have been a year ago, maybe longer, when he did all this, and I don't remember anything at all about it, he was dealing with some more pressing issues at the time, and I don't remember him saying very much other than "Try this fix for your scanner". Probably like most of us here, I'm far from a genius where tricky computer stuff like this is concerned, but I'm never shy about getting proper help from people who sort out problems like this for a living, they're worth every penny. No guarantees here of course, and I imagine you'd also need an original disk with all the NikonScan stuff on it, but Dave is a skilled IT professional who really does know what he's doing, so give these a try.
 
My invoice for consultancy work will be following along soon...

I did receive your invoice, Rob -- and very much appreciate the 30-year, single-payment option. :-)

Thanks for the info and efforts! It will be years before scanning again but will look this over and may well add it to my current laptop regardless! Haha, it's already six but a good dozen years younger than the other in storage, so near-new!

Thank You!
