I've bought Epson 750 instead of a high end scanner, on the basis of a reasoning, that for 13X17 or 16X20 inch enlargements, there won't be a lot of quality difference, and the epson has brought some useful calibration tools as well. I thought I'd better hold to the extra cash to spend it on a first affordable and meaningful in terms of crop factor, digital back. But the answer about the effective quality of this scanner is elusive, as I have not tried to scan any of my slides on a better machine, So I post a couple of 2400 DPI scans here, to enable other users make some analysis. The Color Checker shot has been taken with a Hasselblad 500 EL/M and a Planar CF 120 at F11, and if I manage to post it correctly, you will see an unmanipulated version, and then a version after a noise ninja noise reduction, plus a double USM (200,2,0 plus 200,1,0), the house shot has been taken with the same camera and a Sonnar C T* 250 with a 2xMutar at F16 (that is stopped down only one f stop). I want to show it intentionally, as I have been expecting a rather poor result from this combo, and the outcome has been very satisfactory instead. Both shots taken on Fuji RVP 100. The scans have been made with the Epson scan with all the tweakings turned off, and the film has been put into Doug's MF holder and held flat with the T- locks. Please make your comments of what you make of this, as I am quite curious indeed - consider that these crops correspond roughly to 1/6 of the linear width/height of the 6x6 frame (2,25 inch*2400=5400 while the crops are about 940 pixels square).
