Hi,

My scanning experience is with Velvia, Provia, Ektar 100 and T-MAX 100. The scanner I have used is a Minolta Dimage Scan Multi Pro, and two 6000 PPI drum scans.

I guess I will look at Provia, when I have some time to spare.

This far I would say that I don't like scanned film.

These page are all scanned film (mostly 67 on Velvia)

These are Ektar 100:

Best regards

Thanks Bart. I have never shot with Portra so your advice is most welcome.

My last dealing with films were 4x5 sheets of Provia 100F, but it has been 7-8 years I guess. Portra was already around of course but I never got to try it out myself.

Cheers,
Bernard

Ah, Portra. Lovely film. Here it is in 120 (Rolleiflex SL66SE; scanned on an Epson V750).

Nice! Did you use wet mounting to get this result?

Cheers,
Bernard

Thanks! No, I used the betterscanning.com film holder with T-locks. This seems to work well for me. The main issue I have with the Epson now is CA, which is easily fixable. I do think it's a much better machine than people give it credit for.

Here's another Portra shot (160, from memory):
