How does it look on a light table? From what I understand it can be a really picky film. A little bit of over or underexposure can really change how things look. From what I've seen it really works good in late afternoon sun for landscapes. I picked up a roll to shoot the Fall colors around here but ended up using Ektar instead.
Ha the only way I have to look at the slides themselves is holding them up in light. Hard to discern too much or differentiate from the scans. I did up some of the saturation in the scans, but only a hair here and there.
Huh? I would expect things to be a whole lot more saturated and vibrant after tweaking than what you ended up with. From what I've read if it's just a little bit overexposed it tones the reds and saturation down a lot. I'm talking about a third or half stop, nothing major by any means. Ektar misbehaves in a very similar fashion so I really concentrate on the meter matching with the SRT102. With the XK it's not an issue thanks to the aperture priority mode and infinitely variable shutter. I guess I'll try it in the XK and see how it goes. I'm not sure I'll mess with it much since I already use a picky color film that saturates well and is very fine grained.
I guess it's also been discontinued though details seem to be really sketchy. For now Ektar is still being made in a few formats so that's where most of my film money is going.
I just put the stack of photos on a white piece of paper and set up a rig with my tripod to take pictures of them (outside in nice light)
this is before I edited the background. I was numbering the stacks so I could know what roll they came from when I put them on the computer
