    Re: 35mm film negatives to digital ?

    What would you think of a Epson V500 for $85? (local)
    I just saw it cross-posted on another site, for $80!

    I have a Innovative Technology scanner, but I can't seem to get it to work with my Windows 10, 64 bit OS no matter what compatibility mode I try.

    I am poor. I can't afford even a rebuilt V600 or V800. But I am retired, with time on my hands and snow outside...

    I have a V370 that I use to copy old family photos, works fine. I have not done any slides or negatives. Make sure you get the slide and neg holders and everything works. Be aware that it will take some time to learn the software. I see B&H sells
    refurbished V500's when they have them in stock for $99.95.

    She said that the last time she used it was on a Windows 7 machine.

    Since I can't get my current old scanner to work with any of the available emulations, I'm not in a hurry to spend more money on outdated tech.

    Thank you!

    Rob,

    They do have updated drivers for the V500 if you are interested. https://epson.com/Support/Scanners/P...SPT_B11B189011 Possibly ask her if she can try it with the new drivers or take a laptop there with them installed and test it to see if it works.

    I will be using the EFH to use a DSLR and macro lens to scan my negatives, the resolution will out perform a film scanner.

    The EFH arrived this week from the UK it did take 2 months to get here... Essential Film Holder (clifforth.co.uk)

    This is it with the 35mm opening, I also got the 120 opening option due to my medium format Pentax.

    I will be interested to see your set-up with that, the camera and the light. (keeping things aligned)
    I read his story on the link you provided. Thank you.

    I use a Nikon CoolScan 8000 ED but they are very hard to find and major league $$$ if you can find them. I have had mine for many years and hope it does not die any time soon, as it is the only thing I have to scan medium format negatives and I can't afford to replace it!

    A good alternative is something like an Epson V370 Photo. They can be found for $100 or so used and do a decent job of scanning both black and white and color negatives and slides at 4800 dpi

    That doesn't seem to be a bad price. Amazon is selling a new one for $579.99. The one I own is an Epson V600 that I purchased new 10 years ago for around $199.99. I've only used it a few times but never had any issues with it. Mine can scan and convert to TIFF enlargements which is nice.

    Good luck if you decide to get it!

    Here are 2 images, one is scanned via a lab and the other is a DSLR scan using a homemade negative holder. Should be better with the EFH.
    Can you tell the difference?

    And cropped in a 100% on each.

    Scott, thanks for that link! I have it bookmarked and I will investigate this myself. I have already investigated the Nikon adapter for a macro lens and it does not look like it will work with my father's Kodak instamatic 126 negatives or my Kodak 620 negatives (same size as 120 film). But I think we have possibilities here. I bought one of those cheap slide/negative scanners that has the light and camera built into a box, with a film negative holder. It vingnettes badly and the JPEG files are not great. Takes a lot of work in post to fix them. I gave up on my project about 2/3 of the way through a few years back.
