i have a lot of film scanned with noritsu scanner at the lab. at first i was happy, especially with the results from the consumer fuji films. but the cinema fuji film - eterna, was obviously out of balance, with green shift. i’ve tried to colour balance, and was again sort of satisfied by the results, but then decided to scan same pictures with my minolta. hmm, here i think the quality is much better. there are even colours noritsu did not capture, the photo on the right have deeper colours, but if i try to do something like that with the noritsu scanned photo, i get red skin, and artefacts. so i am confused, i paid for the scanning, because i have very limited time recently, and wanted to get cool out of the scanner photos without spending much time on the process.

I have accidentally found film photos i have made of these kids and maize in Shoushi, Artsakh. First I did film photos, then to make sure, i have them, the digital one. Then, I had an impression, that film photos have been spoiled and have had published only the digital version. The third photo was made with canon 450d, pentacon 28mm lenses on a crop sensor. I have already published it somewhere on this or my Armenian language stream, I believe. The first two photos are on black and white film, Kodak CFT (which is not a film for photography, but for the medical purposes), and Mamiya-ZE2 with 50mm lenses, and that camera, unfortunately, leaked light.

Every image captured by a scanner tends to be softened during the scanning process. Because a scanner does not capture all of the available image data but rather samples an image and averages the values, it tends to slightly lower contrast along high-contrast edges and smooth out the image.

I was scanning negatives for a friend today. And I was feeling that I am doing very important work. Almost as important as developing the film. Film can be developed only once. And these negatives most likely will never be scanned. Therefore I was very careful, if there’s a speck of dust, fiber, I was cleaning the negative and repeating the scan. I was scannig with the best quality possible. And I was tuning settings for every frame - if there’s a burned spot, I was lowering “low curve” in order to get a better scan.

at the left side is the scan, probably made by John Maloof, I guess with Epson V700 and published at his blog back in 2009. at the right side is, I guess, professional digitization, made with, I guess, Better Light Super 8K-HS, from the same negative, published at the vivianmaier.com site. of course it’s not only about technology, but also about perception and sense of aethetics, and experience of the person who made the digitizing.

the left scan is more contrasty and darker. the right scan leaves much better impression.
