nocoolscan


You see the 2 cables on the right? Well, there should be a Coolscan 5000 connected to them, but unfortunately it has had to go to Nikon UK. I'm waiting to hear whether or not it will live. I had to clean the mirror but after re-assembly all was not well. Oh dear. It could be time to buy a Plustek scanner. I probably won't know until after the holiday period. Every Coolscan owner's worst fear - will it work when I switch it on. There's no guarantee that parts are available for them anymore. Or do you know otherwise?

steve?

Maybe its the darker days of December, but I seem to want to dig out old negatives at the moment. Pick a sheet and try to find something to print, erm, I mean scan. This is from December 1976, taken with a Minolta SRT303 (black finish) on Ilford HP4 at 650asa processed in Aculux. I can't remember your name now, (was it Steve?) but if you see this, let me know.

(Ahh, remember those). We went back there a few years later, but the sign had gone. Someone told me that it had been stolen. I liked that sign.
