Scanned Slides from Grand Lake Lodge 1969

EPSON sent me a new Epson Perfection V850 Pro Photo Scanner for evaluation. It's a slide scanner. I've had boxes of slides for years, and just got a look at some from 1969. Wow!

  2. The Epson Perfection V850 Pro Photo Scanner has a slide carrier for 12 slides. It also has "...three 35mm film strips (up to 18 frames), one medium-format strip (up to 6 x 20 cm) and one 4 inch x 5 inch frame. The V850 Pro includes two sets of film holders for greater productivity — load up the second set while the first set is on the scan bed."

  4. This is one of the boxes of slides I have. My dad organised them all. It's exciting to be able to scan them in and see what they look like.
  5. Once you insert the slides, you place hte slide holder on the scanner and line up the arrows. There's also two pegs that fit into two holes.
  6. Next, you set your settings. I chose Positive film, Color, Screen/Web, Color Restoration and DIGITAL ICE technology (Automatically removes dust and scratches).

  9. Note: For this first scan, I scanned for the web at 96 dpi. Here is blog post from Greg Newcomb, the 850's product manager, where he discusses how to calculate the best resolution for what you are trying to do.
