    So, I got an Epson 4490 this week to complement my LS-5000 and be able to scan medium format!!! Finally.

    This is a test roll of Velvia 50 on the cheap Lubitel 2 TLR. I don't remember what the hell I did, but I managed to complete unsaturate Velvia ! :redface:

    That's newton, and you can see the FM2 I metered from at the left corner of the frame (the rest of the roll was correctly exposed, so I really don't know what I did here. I may have done it on purpose... or not. Memory is not one of my strong points, and this is from last december :tongue: )

    It does look a bit overexposed... :Wink:
  3. Before morning coffee or after?
  4. Is it possible the TLR lens' aperture is sticky and didn't stop down all the way?
  5. Desaturating a Velvia image is something that's extremely hard to do! How have you achieve this? LOL
