Up.

One more from yesterday’s activities.

Everyone likes a parade.

The Santa Claus Parade, Toronto, 2019.

The year has been a difficult one, in many ways, but we’re still here.

Glad to see the smiles today.

Modified Film Reels for Patterson tanks.

I ordered these modified film reels to make it easier to load film.

They are compatible with the Patterson tank system.

(Just sharing, for those of you doing in-home film developing… in case you weren’t aware of their existence.)

Epson V600 Scanner.

I had someone ask me today how I like the Epson V600 scanner.  A few more of you have asked the same question since my last set of images were posted, so I thought I’d resurrect this previous discussion:

https://prosophos.com/2014/02/07/epson-v700-vs-plustek-120/

The same observations for the Epson V700 hold true for the V600, except that:

  1. The V600 film holder can handle 3 frames of a 6×7 negative, just like the Plustek 120.
  2. The V600 is smaller than the V700.
  3. The V600 costs much less than either scanner.

All in all, I am pleased with it and would recommend it to anyone scanning medium format film. For 35mm film, I use the Plustek 8200.  Both of these scanners can be purchased for less money than the Epson V800, which is the current equivalent to the now discontinued V700.

The Plustek 120 is also no longer available, but a next generation model is anticipated.
