Hasselblad 903 SWC sharpness/detail

  1. I'm new here. I want to share some results from my SWC. I shot a roll in February 2006 of old Kodak Pro 100 (PRN-2, color negative) which expired July 1999. It had been in my refridgerator for years. I scanned the film with an Epson Perfection V750 Pro using Silverfast 6Ai with default color profiles. In Photoshop CS2 I applied mild USM sharpening, auto curves and NIK Remove Color Cast filter. There's nothing particularly remarkable about these six images except they are all scanned from the same one film frame. They show how sharp the smallest distant details are. If you're interested I have some others I can share as well.

  2. Hi Michael!

    You will be getting much better in the future, using the NEW "ROLLEI Scanfilm 400 Pro"! Check with Rollei: www.rollei.com right after the Photokina!
     
  3. Great, the only response I get is spam.
     
  4. Yes... Mr. Smallfoot seems to make it his business to spread the word for a few brands here on Photonet.
     
  5. Hi Michael,

    the main address of your link redirects to Blue Corset Photography. Nice tatoo girls there :)

    actually a screen web scan of 96ppi does not show sharpness at all.
    Q: you large prints can one do of Kodak Pro 100 [PRN-2] in 6x6 size?

    I have read good things of this ancient film of the past here at photo.net which had a PGI rating of 56 at 8.8x enlarged, i.e. 16x20 inch print (40 x 50 cm). 100UC would be PGI 53 and 400UC PGI 62 for this 16x20 print if one believes in datasheets.
     
  6. I will change that to redirect to http://www.portrait-arts.net. Thanks for the heads-up.
