I'm a photographer based in Shanghai. I could probably get you the details of a place that does Imacom scans in the next day or so. I'm not sure what they charge per MB.

Much kind thanks to all so far. Please keep them coming! Complete freedom for your interpretations of the scenes.

*** Please add details on processing to those that yet not have. ***

Will get Epson on the three, and drum on at least one if I can   . We shall see...

Derryck,

That would be great! Are they open on Saturdays?

By chance are you member of Shanghai Photography Club, I am .

Ok, the slides are in my hands and I will make Epson high quality flat bed scans of them and post here in about one week (I know a place that can get it done for me at that time).
Anders, if you're interested in a comparison, then a drum scan will offer the best comparison. An Imacon won't provide the kind of shadow detail and tonal separation possible from a Velvia chrome.

A quick Google search of just South Korea provided this link.

Happy Shooting!

Hi Anders,


I will check about opening on Saturdays. I haven't shot film in the three years that I've been here. I'm on my way out to shoot the final of the Tennis Masters Cup so I have to go. But feel free to drop me a line and maybe we can meet up sometime either at my studio or at a cafe.


Cheers,

Derryck.

Derryck,

Much kind thanks! I am an amateur but it would be interesting to meet up, if not this time another of my visits. Next week will be my 9th visit to Shanghai this year alone and I lived there in 2003/2004. Shanghai Photography Club is mostly passionate amateurs, both expats and locals. I know one of the ones who run it since its early start in 2003 and she is also involved in Poco gatherings.

I think Seoul can be difficult and expensive with drum scans and I am four hours away from there. It is more difficult to arrange things in Korea due culture and language barriers combined. The lab in Seoul that process my films would have charged me 50USD for scanning a roll of 35mm slides... God knows what scanner they may use..., and all I can use to communicate is an order form in Korean... complete in blind . Shanghai is great   . The guy I used for film scan and prints before is Trias Design on Moganshan Lu. Let me see what he replies too...

Regards
Anders

I sit in a home office surrounded by prints from Mamiya 7II drum scans and prints from a Mamiya ZD.  My view is that the ZD is marginally better, even though the Velvia drum scans reveal slightly more detail at the pixel level when viewed on screen (just a rough estimate as I'm not comparing identical shots).  Dynamic range is no contest, the ZD is a mile ahead, although I am using Velvia as a reference point; Provia has wider dynamic range as everyone knows.

You can hand hold the 7II at very low shutter speeds, which is not the case with the ZD.

Much as I loved the 7II, I would not want to go back to it after using the ZD.

Oops! I just realized my layer masks were not visible in my original post. I went back and corrected it.

For me the temple looks really good "right out of the box" with next to no processing. Any processing, IMHO, would be entirely subjective and not really demonstrate slide vs digi theme. So I didn't post my results as I figured most everyone would have the same.

Anders,
Thanks for posting.

For my version I used ACR and photoshop to convert it to a 16-bit tiff.
This was just a way of getting the image into Photomatix, which couldn't
read the Mamiya raw file.  Then I used the "Detail Enhancer" feature
of Photomatix to "tone map" the image ("strength" on high and light
smoothing on high).  Afterward, I brought it back into Photoshop
for touching up, cropping and a curve for overall contrast adjustment.
15 minutes.

Tony

SCANNING the 6x7s:

(1) How many MB from each 6x7 would be sufficient for web posting here, Epson/Drum??

(2) Likewise, how many MB scans to show quality in prints for my eyes??

Got email from the guy I used before in Shanghai:
Epson 4870, cost 1.0 China RMB per MB
Drum, cost 1.2 China RMB per MB (unkown drum scanner)

Expect files here Monday or Tuesday due drum scanning, his retouch of Epson and sending them by internet to me. Based on your comments I will select what to do    .
