    EOS Rebel 2000
    Fuji Provia
    Epson 3590 Flatbed

    Ive never shot slide film. These arent supposed to be anything amazing. I just shot through a roll in a day and then had to wait 4 fucking weeks to get it back from Kodak. Theres no local E6 processors in town :hs:

    I think Im going to go pick up a mint EOS 3 tomorrow with powerbooster. Now I just need to find a Coolscan and Ill be set!

    Its a shame flatbeds suck so hardcore at scanning in slide film. I didnt know beforehand :o Ive got one roll left in the Rebel but I think tomorrow Im gonna grab some 160VC from work when I pick up that EOS 3.

    Theres so much detail in these slides that just doesnt come through because of the shitty flatbed :hs:

    These are the first film shots I've liked in good while... Still prefer digital though.

    you really need to do some post processing. i corrected the colours
    i have to drive 15 miles each way for E6 and they do it once a week.

    i like my coolscan. wish it was a new one though. the 9000 is just too expensive
    heres "kodak elite chrome 200"

    the 4000 has a few minor advantages. one if you can get the roll adapter instead of having to cut a roll to scan. also the 4000 is firewire so thats a plus.
    neither have enough resolution compared to even a good flatbed. say a V700 or http://www.microtekusa.com/microtek-artixscan-m1.html
    the old nokon are slow SLOW

    But everything Ive been reading was saying that they would be better than flatbeds? I was looking at a V500 previously..

    well you cant compare a old film scan to a new flatbed. stay with new vs new to compare.
    the minolta scannera are better than the nikon ones, of the same era. hate to suggest but look what ken rockwell had to say about them

    Im just going by stuff like this ..

    http://www.fototime.com/9556DBE9417C26A/orig.jpg
    http://www.fototime.com/037129A6767519B/orig.jpg

    Makes the V500 look like junk.

    This is a comparison between the V700 and the Coolscan 4000
    http://www.photo-i.co.uk/Reviews/interactive/Epson V700/page_8.htm

    The 4000 looks better to me?

    Heres the V750 against the Coolscan 5000
    http://www.webweavertech.com/ovidiu/weblog/archives/000448.html

    Again, the Coolscan looks better?

    Maybe Im just missing something.

    but with a good flatbed you can do larger film :dunno:

    I use an 8800f and its pretty alright.
