It looks a lot more peaceful than I would have guessed.

Reflecta RPS 10m purchased for normal prize, arrived and clearly already used before ... was nowhere in description at video/photography web store.

The problem with this, and I have noticed with all scanners in the meantime, is that the film must be flat to get the entire scan sharp. Scans with the RPS 10m are rarely sharp everywhere, even with new film with my own photo. Sometimes the focus range of the scanner is not large enough to get the centre sharp.

It seems worse than my RPS 7200, but that will be due to the higher resolution. There are also weird artifacts ...
Worthless ... scanner goes back.


What now? there are a few options:

1. I can try to modify one of my scanners to accept rolls, maybe my Minolta Dimage Scan Dual III?

2. I can go back to the old ways and use my glass holder with Nikon Coolscan 8000, this always ensures flat film! but the more things against the film = the more dust, and then I have to cut the film.

2. I completely distance myself from scanners and make a DSLR 'scanner' setup with my Nikon D610. For this, the DigitaLIZA 35mm holder seems the cheapest and best option? The Film Carrier MK1 + Pro Mount MK2 also seems a good option, but it costs a lot more.
Lenses I don't know, maybe a Nikkor 60mm AF-D Micro? I will have to purchase a macro lens for this.

My idea is that I can: 1. Use the lens aperture to get everything sharp. 2. Maybe I can use the glass holder, but I don't know if AN-glass will be visible in the photos?
It is all something to think about ...

Here some results from the Reflecta RPS 10m:

Edge is a bit more pronounced,  but look good.

It's also a really interesting topic, look forward to flicking through more.

I wanted to quickly scan a complete roll before I had to go somewhere, so I set the cropping to max. Normally I would crop out the edges.

Thing is, its never good enough for me. I am a perfectionist and my mind can't rest until its perfect. Which it never will be... due to the reality we live in.

Tell that to my thoughts!

That's why it's good to have third parties to let you know.

Haha this is the internet be sure somebody will pop and tell you its rubbish no matter how much work you put in.
