Pledge: Medium-format film scanner

From London Hackspace Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


We're looking into purchasing a quality medium format scanner.

The item

There are two families of scanners - dedicated film scanners (very pricey, and often - no longer manufactured), and flatbed scanners (cheaper). I've found a model suitable for our use from Epson, the discontinued Epson V700 which can be acquired from eBay for around £300.

Uses

  • Scanning 35mm film
  • Scanning 120 film (medium format)
  • Scanning even larger negatives
  • Scanning photos

Pledges

I think we need to raise ca £300 to secure a used unit with any surplus going towards getting a copy of VueScan software, and any remaining money going towards consumables for the darkroom.

Running total: £120
