Now let’s see how the scanner scans transparent originals. Besides a test target IT8, I took a medium-format slide and an old 35mm film.

I have no serious complaints about the quality of scanning medium-format film. The scanner does its job well enough here. But the small window in the holder for this form-factor doesn’t permit you to scan two frames at a time – only one frame and a half fit in.

The 35mm film was the next original to be scanned. I digitized it in Auto Exposure mode and also with enabled Digital ICE for Films. Here’s the result:


No Digital ICE for Films


Digital ICE for Films enabled

This scan of a black-and-white negative film with enabled Digital ICE for Films is given only to illustrate the fact that this technology doesn’t support films of that type (and Kodachrome 64 Professional films, too) as the developer honestly warns you. As you can see, the digitized image has such distortions that cannot be removed by any amount of post-processing.
