This category includes the scanning of all different types of transparent film material as well as historic glass plate negatives.
Traditional scanner solutions often work with fixed sizes, such as 24x36mm, 6x6 or 6x9, thus limiting the versatility of the equipment substantially. Medium format camera based “scanning solutions” work with all sizes of transparencies, determined only by the illuminating light box, which may indeed be very large.
To make the scanning setup effective and to increase overall productivity, Film Scanning Kits are available with Film Carriers for the different types of film and glass plates.
The high resolution, high dynamic range and quality of the Schneider Kreuznach lenses of the camera systems is applied to its full use when scanning transparencies, where excellent color reproduction is mandatory. Capture One CH 8 offers a range of settings for adopting the raw processing to different types of positive and negative film and to glass plates.
There is a tremendous speed advantage in the instant medium format capture over scanning, which may speed up the process by a factor of 200 to 300 or more.WATCH VIDEO ON TRANSPARENCY SCANNING
