QImage Software For Printing

Some years ago, and even before the beginning of the Adobe Lightroom era, I used the Windows QImage software for my prints on a LargeFormat inkjet printer, more precisely the HP Z3100 model. Even then, I regretted that this software was not...

    Hello Kevin,

    very nice report about this really interesting tripod with ball head.

    The only downside is that it is not available in Germany and unfortunately no shipping outside the US.

    Regards

    … btw. the company Braun wrote me today that the medium format scanner Braun FS-120 is also no longer available.

    This means that there are only remaining stocks in the stores. The number of available medium format scanners is decreasing noticeably more and more.

    Define “RAW Scanning” and what you hope to accomplish with something raw vs. cooked?

    Hello Andrew,

    I’m not sure I understand the background of the question?

    From RAW files one expects in general the original data that a CCD sensor or other camera sensor outputs to get files with the largest possible post-processing reserve.

    In addition, I think it’s a positive side effect that these “digital negatives” are more likely to resist accidental modification in common software than typical image file formats.

    However, for years I have mostly scanned my medium format slides directly to TIFF and then archived them on Verbatim Archival M discs.

    Hello Chris,

    that makes sense if there is now the new structure element :).

    I haven’t yet tried it, but the Skier light box looks really intriguing. More here:

    Hello Mike,

    thanks for the for the YouTube link. I will have a look.

    I have slides for the most part. So I will look at that first.

    Film negatives hold a few more challenges. Here Marc has already given a few good and relevant tips. I will certainly test more different approaches.
