| p.1 #17 · Post-processing of a photo from a film negative |
I got stuck with this task for my wife's families' photo all of which are slides. Tried dinking around with shooting, then processing but bluntly it was a waste of time. Picked up a Plustek scanner on sale at BB for $200 and cut processing time by at least 90% Guess it's a matter of what you want to spend your time doing.
Also, though the slides were stored properly, there's clearly color degradation with age. I've got Kodachrome and Ecktachrome (?) back into the 50's. I can almost judge the era by how the color looks. Way more knowledge...Show more →
Not surprised to hear about your experience with old slides - I saw the same trend looking at my grandfather's slides which all suffered from a yellowish cast (but he also used not the best slide film in the first place). I just used my first slide film ever in a project of mine to compare slide film with digital photography. The results were quite interesting! Therefore I am currently only stuck with 36 slides to photograph which I can easily manage.
I have a few film negatives I was interested in to digitalize from my film camera days before 2005. They still seem to be mostly fine as far as I can tell, but as I mentioned above, post-processing them is just a pain.
