He seems a very nice guy to interview: forthcoming, and not in the least pretentious.

There's just something about the Hasselblad marque. Looking at that table spread with 'blad goodies made me smile: though I'll probably never buy into it again, there's something so 'right' about their design ethic. It was evident right at the start, and is continuing today after the acknowledged bling glitch. Perhaps it's reflected in those delightful, bare aluminium edge design cues on the cameras, the basic design of the integrated whole, but the beauty still lives on. Love the style of those products. Performance for purpose I'd take for granted.

Are the 'blad books available in the public domain, or are they circulated la Pirelli, only to those who count? Never even seen the Hasselblad ones.

No reason to doubt it. Problem is the file structure. With xnconvert I simply created a top level folder "Pages" on the source disk, and dragged all 85 Annual folders to that, each annual folder containing Issue folders, which each contains the actual page TIFFs. This arrangement took all of 10 seconds. Next comes the neat part: In xnconvert i just dragged the folder "Pages" to the input field, chose the output disk, conversion type and checked "keep directory structure". And clicked "Start". 57 hours later 179605 files had been converted without errors, with the original directory structure, on another disk. From 3.9 TB of TIFFs to less than 300 MB as 80% quality JPEGs.

Nice.  Glad it worked!

Nice shot, Arlen.

I never felt that bored with my own work, though, but I did keep the music playing even at the worst of times. Maybe photography has different needs... or solutions. Or, he could just be consulting inspiration, instead. We shall never know.

...Sorry for the silly comment. I removed it. And I will not joke about it in the future...

Oh, come on Erik, that was a good one, don't be so easily beaten into submission by Jeremy, a.k.a. The Staunch P.C. Warrior!  ;) ;D

When it comes to humor, my stance is that everything is a fair game. Just check Jeremy's and others' jokes about dead people in another thread. Particularly appropriate targets are anything and anyone that calls themselves "Great..."  :)

Rob, I can totally picture you taking snaps around Dracula's castle in Romanian mountains, or nice Polish girls in potato fields, or enjoying bites of Bulgarian paprika, chased with plum brandy  :D

Plum brandy? Really like poire...

From a recent tourism promotion campaign shot after sunset in the presence of the Count himself:

(The castle is now run by a secret branch of Hilton. Which might explain a lot.)

Thanks for your suggestions Terry. fwiw, I made initial attempts to remove those horizon-breaking branches in LR, but the results were ugly due in part to the complex sky behind the branches. I didn't move the photo into PS and use those tools for removal, but I plan to with a revised version of the photo.

In other AI news, the completely AI generated pop-song. It's impressive from one point of view, but a certain amount of nuance remains to be mastered. Then again, it may be comparable to efforts by eg Japanese bands to write English language pop songs...

Thanks barr405 for your answer. So now I know why I get no answer from the sellers of such scanners for example from London, these are all scammers, who want my money and deliver nothing.

What is your asking price? Perhaps send me a PM. How much scans was made with it? Was there any regular maintenance? And what additional equipment (masks) do you offer with the scanner?
