Remember that negatives (B&W or colour) will, by definition, have a very low density range; you actually want a compressed histogram, which you then use curves to expand out into a range of intensities. A negative is not simply an inverted positive; you have to map the proper contrast yourself.

As for the light source, I use a Artograph Lightpad, and it gives very even illumination.


Before, the shape of the historgram is like a skinny, inverted V shape. Well, I think this is it. I think I nailed it. The final puzzle is that I still need to use Vuescan to invert my DSLR scan negatives. With CS5, certain scene is easier to invert. Others, I had troubles with last night because of some stupid color casts. With Vuescan, I just load the DSLR scan copy and to scan. Vuescan would automatically invert it and to save it. Then, I would just edit the shot normally in CS5, which is a lot better and faster than tweaking the black and white points and trying to color balance the shot....:) Of course, my goal here is to do these DSLR scans without using another reference shot to match it. And to get the tone curves and the tonality right as well.

Here is another example. No HDR here just single exposure with 2 shots stitched. This is from the DSLR scan. The highlight here is very intense enough coming off the water treatment plant. The original shat has that glow and some flares too. Yes, at 100 crop, you can see the individual metal railing by the ladders on those chimneys.

These were shot few years back but didn't make it to my Flickr collection...because they were shot with Tmax 400 and developed in Rodinal under a very, very cloudy sky. Without aggressive tone curve adjustments, the shots look like crap...all muddy looking.

DSLR scanned...

^lol, that's a nice setup.

here's my DSLR scans of 35mm film using my A7 + FD 50mm 3.5 macro with tube, Slide duplicator.
I used my monitor with notepad open as background

I think I have to sell my scanner now....hahahah.... I think I have all the pieces to the puzzle. The last piece is profiling your light box!!! That was it. Once I had my light tube profiled as a Picture Style (which has been cut down in half in order to produce more uniform lighting), everything gets easier with the highlights and shadows and color casts. After Vuescan inverts the negative, the shot was pretty much 90% processed. The rest was just tweaking the tone curves to open up the mid tone and bringing out the highlights.

Another difficult shot to DSLR scan because the light is coming from the right and shinning at the boat house building, which is marble white.

DSLR scan. It seems that I could get more details off the building while retaining the highlight in the sky.

Canon 9000f...I was struggling trying to bring out the highlights and not blowing out details on the building.

And the entire 5600 pixel here. You can even spot a hawk flying in between the buildings at 100% crop.

I decided to go for a Yashica Mat 124G for my first MF camera, and it arrived today!

124G (external link) by Brendan | Toews (external link), on Flickr

Nice...how's the condition? These vintage cameras are usually not in the best of shape unless it has been CLA. I had a blast reconditioning mine.... enhanced viewfinder using the Mamiya c330 focusing screen. Perfect clarity. I spray painted (flat black paint) the viewfinder and film chambers since my Mat tends to reflect too much light inside the film chamber. I suspect the 124g should have a more improved way to flock the film chamber. I also cleaned and lubed both the focusing and crank side mechanism. Last week I just cleaned the shutter timing with some lighter fluid. Of course, refoamed the back door light seal too.

Thought I would practice my DSLR scan workflow since I am stuck at home with a crappy NYC weather...

Shot them last year when I had my Mamiya c330. Tmax 100 and 400. HC110.

Thanks! I loaded it with some Delta 100 and went out shooting earlier today, and I'm quite happy so far!

The condition is close to like-new. Besides a small amount of dust and a small paint scuff, it's pretty much perfect, although obviously I haven't developed anything from it yet, so hopefully the negatives will match the aesthetic condition. I'm down in Florida at the moment, and will be leaving for Ontario tomorrow. I'm going to stop at the Outer Banks in NC on the way home, so I'll be able to do some more in-depth testing with the camera during landscape shoots there. The inside looks fairly well flocked to begin with (better than the original Yashica Mat that I borrowed), so hopefully I won't need to do any work on that.
