I thought this is a nice deal on the Plustek 8100 from BH. I just ordered one and with tax but free shipping. It is still cheaper than most places, even Adorama. If you aren't in NYC, this could even be a better deal. BTW, the real optical resolution is about 3600 dpi+. However, to get that resolution, you have to scan it at full 7200 dpi. It could be slow, 4m per scan. Unfortunately, there aren't that much cheaper choices. Most legacy scanners won't even work in anything beyond Windows XP with archaic software.

I tried to like the Pakon but the BW results just didn't wow me....:) Overexposure by 2 stops. No wonders I was seeing hot lighlights in most of the samples I saw. Color scan is great though and it is advisable to use run on WinXP, dual booting or in a dedicated PC.

yeah, i had to lower the brightness down by -2 to get decent exposure, others had to lower down the contrast to protect highlights and shadows.

edge100 posted a comparison scan between the pakon and his printscan and there was no comparison. but for speed and efficiency I like the pakon.
if i'm not happy with the results or want a higher scan then i will use the v600

i need to play with it more to get a better workflow though

How much details you can recover if the scan itself is already 2 stops overexposed?

This was the issue I had with the Pakon. If the Pakon clips the highlights, they're gone. Adjusting brightness will have no effect on this. With the SprintScan 120 (or really any scanner on which the scan exposure can be altered), you have the ability to get a raw scan and then map the tones appropriately.

See the attached. Pakon vs. SprintScan 120.

No doubt, the Pakon is fast (!) and it's terrific for making 'proof' scans and for dealing with more straightforward negatives where contrast is not this extreme. But for archival scans and/or difficult negs, you need the ability to control exposure on a frame-to-frame, roll-to-roll basis.

That's a nice fiend to have. Looks like a weekend spent in the darkroom.

Did you shoot them off at the same exposure?

You might want to look into getting a better easel.

No, used different negatives, different exposure.
Didn't know I need MG filters for enlarger.
Print scan with added contrast.

Easel is good one, but I need to learn.

Nice shots. What enlarger is that? looks like a hybrid of focomat and opemus.

By easel I meant a dedicated one. There's dedicated easels with 8*10 on one side and 5*7 and smaller paper formats on the other side. That's the only way to get the edges straight. If you have an adjustable easel, it's just a pain to adjust for normal sized prints.

Thank you!
This one is Vivitar e-34.

I was able to find manual for it.

I like universal easel because I'm planning to use all kind of sizes from 3x5 to as big as possible with this enlarger-easel.
It takes longer time, for sure, to get it straight with universal.

With the legendary Yashica T5 (T4 Super)
I was not impressed from the first film (Kodak Ultramax 400)
I had camera shake and missed autofocus, the waist level viewfinder is very small to look at,
Converted the scanned photos from the lab to a more plaisant cinematic look
