Hi All. I've been printing b&w off and on since high school, in the late 1970's. I like it. It's just a nice thing to do. And it's now the focus of my career, which has been steadily less about shooting since the change to digital. I haven't yet seen direct file to paper prints, and I'm sure they're good, but I use an LVT film recorder to go from file back to neg. I found an affordable one, as they're dinosaurs. One day I'll post a tread to discuss the the differences between direct file to paper, vs file to LVT to paper, but that's not what this thread is about. My question has to do with film scanning, and now I'll go even deeper into the alternative. I recently experimented with scanning medium format negs and chromes with an old Phase One Photo Phase 4x5 scan back, and was very pleasantly surprised, except for scan line problems. The scan line problems are now moot, as I seem to have fried the whole unit attaching the scsi inadvertently while power was on. Fixing sadly seems impossible, I've looked inside, and Phase One won't touch it. So what to replace it with? I've read the, slightly less old, Power Phase FX possibly has higher resolution. Can anyone comment? Or have one without scan line problems, and want to get rid of it? (I know about the need for light source voltage stabilization with these units). The same questions go for the Betterlight/Dicomed, or even a flat bed that could be adapted? I should have already said the reason I liked the Photo Phase so much, apart from the quality of the scans, was workflow. Nothing was easier that simply laying it under my enlarging lens. And I didn't miss having dedicated scanning software at all. The imaging software pulled out the information, and Photoshop does absolutely everything else. So my question is about recommended scanners, to those who may have older ones, or had experience with them, that would truly do the job for medium format and 4x5 negs/chromes, projected via enlarger. Thanks so much.
