Follow-up to “Film Photographers Rejoice!”: The Plustek 120 Pro is here!


Hooray!!! Thanks to Alex, I have a happy update (see the comments section of the post from January 2, 2019).

Edit:  Here is the direct link to Plustek.

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:

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.

Thus Sprach Zarathustra (Eternal Recurrence of the Same).

Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None (German: Also sprach Zarathustra: Ein Buch für Alle und Keinen, also translated as Thus Spake Zarathustra) is a philosophical novel by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, composed in four parts between 1883 and 1885 and published between 1883 and 1891.[1] Much of the work deals with ideas such as the ‘eternal recurrence of the same’…”


We did have spring for a few days, but winter has returned.

So, here we are… inside again, back in front of our bay window.

Occasionally, a burst of sunlight overcomes the darkness for a while.

Patience, patience.

She’s really happy about the junk food run.

Incidentally, this place was made famous by Drake.

Ghost Story.

“Another winter comes
His icy fingers creep
Into these bones of mine
These memories never sleep…

You were my compass star
You were my measure…

If this was all correct…

It’s time that I confess:  I must have loved you.”

Sting, Ghost Story.
