135 Film scanning workflow




Hardware:
Canon Canscan 5600F (4800 optical resolution, 19200 interpolated resolution)

Sofware:
OEM software (which I find to be better than VueScan):
—ScanGear drivers
—ArcSoft photostudio 5.5 (for 48 bit TIF support)
Lightroom Classic ~ colour correction if necessary, setting black/white points, sharpening, dust & scratch removal

Scan Settings:
DPI: 3200-4800 DPI, interpolation reserved for experimentation.
Output size: 70-100% of original size , 60% or less if interpolated, to approximately 15-25 megapixels.
Colour/exposure settings: no adjustments.
Gamma:1.5-1.75.
Film and platen calibration is executed for each scan.

Samples available at my LomoHome.
