Anyone on here recommend a good scanner for film? Mostly 35mm but if there is one that does 35 and 120 film, that would be great. I've been going to local film shops getting stuff done and I figure to invest and just get a scanner for myself to save money in the long run.

I also just looked up people "scanning" photos using a digital camera. Seems like more of an investment since i have to buy a ton of gear as well as a macro lens.

Im using a Epson V750, which works fine. Its just damn slow. Camera scanning seems to be a good option, works faster and quality is very good. You need to have a good digital workaround (I dont even have photoshop haha). People scan with a Fuji x system, a 35mm lens plus extension tube and it works fine.

What is the scan time to do a hi res photo? I mean I am sort of a part time film photographer and to date have only finished less than 10 rolls of film but I am so used to digital that developing and then long scan times would drive me nuts.

Whats your goal with the scans? Posting digitally, making larger prints? Thatll determine what you might need.

I have an old canon canoscan 9000F that is decent for stuff thatll live in a digital space. It can scan pretty high res, but Ive never printed from those files.

Im part of a darkroom collective that has some impressive scanners. We have two epson flatbeds. Not sure on models. Those handled some old Kodachrome slides well. We also have a noritsu for 35mm and a imacon for larger format. Those are amazing, but not very practical for an at home setup.

I know a couple people who have run a light box and macro lens setup for scanning. A macro lens is pretty nice to have.

Anyone knows what setup Oliver Barton is using for his square fisheye shots?
Is it cropped to 1:1 circular fisheye???

Back in the film days the square fisheye shots were usually made with the hasselblad 30mm fisheye.

My guess is that he uses the canon 8-15mm fisheye at 8mm on a full frame camera and then crops to 1:1 (8mm or zoomed in enough so that there is not vignetting on the 1:1 crop.

I tried 8mm on ff but its hard to compose in camera.
Got some shots but after cropping to 1:1 in LR i find it often to cut off skaters hand or landing etc.
maybe he gaff tape lcd screen to see the final 1:1 crop without vigneting and then you have a better idea how to compose?

My example: if i would crop to get rid of vig on the top i would cut his head of.

if its got blue sky like that thats easy af to just select it and do a content aware fill in photoshop. or even if youre using lightroom just use the spot removal brush.

also i believe oliver barton is using a nikon 10.5mm with the hood shaved off on a full frame body.
