A scanfroma Plustek Film 120 scanner using Siverfast 8. When Siverfast works properly, as can be seen from this scan, the results can be superb. This should have taken about 4 minutes. It actually took nearly two hours as I had to fight with the framing and then got a series of scans that were just garbage. Silverfast are truly amazing. Amazingly inefficient.

I should perhaps add another comment re: Silverfast. Now I have finally got the hang of it I am consistently getting very good results. I will stick to my guns as regards after sales support from Plustek, though. They were rude and gave out the usual garbage that some tech support types seem to think is OK. They assume you have knowledge you do not have and then make everything your fault for not understanding THEIR product that came with very little, very poor instructions.Smugness is no substitute for consideration and a desire to help.

This is superb. Suggested for FPI. This image has a quality you rarely find, it makes me look twice and then another few times. Superb lighting and composition. Solid.

Thank you arh. Silverfast is software for scanning. It vows that it is the absolute best such software on the market. It is not. It is crap It comes bundled with some higher end scanners, though. This and the other image on which you were kind enough to comment are scans from the same 6x4.5 B+W film frame. A five to ten minute job (scanning this single frame) actually took nearly two hours of fighting and swearing at the bloody Silverfast software.

I think this image superb. I love the grain texture and retro shadows. I was intrigued by your comment so, not knowing what Silverfast 8 was, googled it and read the ‘about’ link. I am still no clearer and gave up after the first three chapters as it seemed written in a pretentious prose without giving any clear indication of what it was. But then I may just be a little slow. Still a great image though.
