Norman, 

your work is great. I learn much from your web site. I'm a Leica DigiLux One user. Information on your site helped me choose the camera and printer too (EPSON Stylus Photo 950). Than you for your excellent work.

Very excellent site! Lots of great info.

I didn't spot anywhere where I could download a PDF or similar file for any the subjects. Did I miss it, or is it not available?

I'd like to print out some of the material for my personal use, and I don't like to print fro the screen, but from a nice "clean" file such as PDF.

Thanks again for all your fine material.

Thanks much for building this site. I've just finished assembling the components of a fine print digital darkroom including the Epson 2200 and Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 and your site has been extremely valuable to me as I am not a digital techie by a long shot. I'm sure you know that the users manuals shipped with this equipment leave a lot to be desired. Living in the hinterlands of northeast Oregon leaves me at a disadvantage for local learning resources. I thought Photoshop Elements was a pretty good program until I read your comments about Picture Window Pro. I've now ordered that program and am looking forward to trying it. I've got a lot of nice slides to scan and print and I want to get the hightest quality prints. Thanks again.

I found this site while searching for info on the Canon FS4000 scanner. I now use Canon EOS D-30 & D-60 but have quite a collection of slides that I've taken over the years and I want to put them on CD's and print some of them. I use a HP CP-1700 printer and Photoshop 7.0.
This is a great web site. I've spent most of the day reading and looking at some of the links. What a fantastic resource ... many thanks.

I would say that your site(s) are the very best I have come across. You have such a wealth of valuable information that, surely it must be being used by many photographers who have recently become involved with digital photography. I applaude your hard work and diligence in providing all of this information. As a newcomer to digital photography, (I am still hanging onto film cameras and wondering when to make the plunge to buy a good digital camera).I shall visit often and LEARN!

Hi Koren,
Great site. You say, waiting
for 24x36 mm sensors for DSLR is in the near future?
Ok, but, then we will wait for the 6x6, 6x7, 4:x5" etc?
Second, please write some pages (if you have the time)
about film proseciing. I think, we can't forget the "old" good negative..

It was so interesting to read your new article on grain, because I had just finished scanning and editing a picture of one of my twin baby girls. My wife uses Gold 200 in all her point and shoot cameras because, well, because its everywhere. So when I ran out of film for the Contax G2 thats what I used. I scanned it with the Canon FS4000. Talk about grain! I made the mistake of using unsharp mask the first time i sharpened it, but it didn't really matter. The effect on the detailed sections of the picture is one of sharpness, but the background is a grainy mess. I eagerly await any software solution. I have also had a similar problem using the epson 2450 with my 645 negatives. Sharpening them is fine for the detail, but the sky is just a mess. I look forward to the next generation of epson scanner. Thank you for working and writing on these matters.

Fantastic Website!! I was looking for information on the D60 relative to how much image quality is lost using higher ASA settings (1000). I'll need time to digest all the technical information concerning image sharpness, but now I at least have a framework for understanding varioius sharpness issues. I'm trying to decide on whether or not to go with the D60 or wait for the next generation, that will likely out preform film. I've been taking pictures since moving to Boulder in 1973, and have recently retired from the Boulder School District where I was a computer/network engineer. We should have lunch sometime. Thanks for making all your tutorials available. I'm looking forward to lots of good reading.

I ran across your site today while searching for help with getting the maximum sharpness from my Epson 2450 Scanner. 
I have been looking for some info on how to get better sharpness fromy my medium format negatives for awhile now and 
your site was the first with any useful data. I am also impressed with a lot of the other info you have and I will surely be back 
to take in more of your knowledge regarding digiatl darkroom workflow and techniques, partiuclarly printing B&W with the Epson printers.

Thanks for your excellent website.

Thank you for all the effort you have put into helping beginners like me. Last June, after retiring, I bought a Sony DSC-F707, my first camera in 35 years. Hoping to develop an artistic/creative part which has been too long ignored. I'm loving it and learning a lot, far more that I could do without the Web. Hope to see you in Boulder some time-- my son lives in Lafayette.

I've learned a lot from your site. I see Kodak is using the image sensors that you were drooling over. I decided to forgo a digital camer just yet because there is so much changing. I just bought a Canon 4000s. I'll wait untill full frame ccd's are avilable readily. I shoot Nikon always iso 100. I have used a Nikon LS 1000 for years and It is hard to forgo it. I have Silverfast software and the slide feeder. It is also faster. I always use twin processor machines. They are great because they don't hang up while the scan or the printing is taking place. 2cpu.com can give you lots of ideas if you want to upgrade cheaply. I really don't know how sharp 35mm film really is. All I see revolves around superb lenses with tripods. Using anything other than iso 100 slide I can see the difference even with the LS1000. I noticed my Ls1000 is sharper when I scan horizontally rather than upright. It is cumbersome to lay the slide feeder on it's side. The scan times and the file sizes seem to be a problem with the 4000dpi scanners. I always shoot slides because they are simpler to assess afterwards and with the ls 1000, Dusting is simpler. Slides also have an antiscratch surface

I appreciate your website, and I now have both the Canon 4000 and Epson 2450. I am having a concern with the epson because it des not seem to me to be much better than the 1650, and I know that you had a different result. I've tried raising the film level, with no results that I can discern. As with the 1650 the results are very good with 6x7 images and not good at all with 6x4.5. I'm strongly considering returning the one I have and trying a new one.

By the way, I really appreciated your ideas on the color space issue, especially turning off the monitor calibration in PWP, which was a big improvement.

As someone with a degree in physics, who turned to work with computers, and found myself unexpectedly having lots of time on my hands in 2001, I also turned to photography, my old hobby.
Similarities...

My interests are mostly life and "street" shooting, however the relevance and quality of your (generally applicable) explanations cannot be overestimated. Such level sites are not too common on the Net. 

Do not know, how many others would consider a book with this information useful, but I would not hesitate to buy it, especially if real CCD characteristics as well as film is described (and printers, monitors etc.) Might become a standard handbook, who knows?

Norman, excellent Website. 

Just I started to read the MTF part. Before, I was happy
that I had found the sin(x)/x function as the weight 
function for the scanning process "average + sample", 
following principles of signal processing (good book
by Samuel Stearns).
Now I see, that this has to be corrected by a
power 2 to 4 ....
I am also impressed by the accuracy of the explanation
for Nyquist. I would add perhaps, that , IMO, finite
pieces of arbitrary signals are never bandlimited, 
unless they start and end rather soft (as forced by
a von Hann window).

It was pleasure finding your website. I'm a comercial photographer in Fresno, California. If you ever decide you want to visit yosemite or sequoia national park, drop me a line I would love to show you around. I do lots of comercial work to pay the bills, but the true pasion is taking my Mamiya 6 on hikes and trips throughout california. Once those velvia slides are developed, enlarging them to 40x40 inches on Fuji Supergloss type R become the ultimate high. Well the lab I used in S.F. was capable of doing prints up to 48x48 but with the advent of the inkjet printer, the owner saw the writing on the wall and sold out. The only labs I can find now can only print up to 30 inches wide. Pro color in seattle can do 48 on the Ilford papaer. So I've been force to explore the digital domain. Most of my comercial work is now done withe the Olympus E-10. So now it's time to figure out what to do with all the medium format equipment I have. What to do with over 5,000 Velvia 6x6 slides, and waht to do with my pentax 67 600mm f4. Your articles are very well writen. And having a background in computer science and math makes reading them enjoyable.

The question becomes: Would a Hassleblad be worth $50 just like an IBM selectric typewriter 5 years down the line

i have been visitng your site for about 7 months now, since i came across it in a link on - i think - luminous landscape. it is great! thank you for all the work you have put into it and thank you a million times for helping my learning curve on what is still the arcane subject of digital imaging.

i purchased PW Pro as a result of your urging, and i am very happy with it, although i am still learning how to use it. i have gotten a bit better, and i just purchased the Epson 2450 (based on your recommendations) to start getting serious about inputting my own work and editing it. it just arrived the other day - and since i have no scaning skills whatsoever, i am slugging my way through before getting my first scan. hopefuly this weekend i will get one done. (work unfortunately gets in the way.) once i figure out some things, i would love to be able to contact you with a few questions.

again, a million thanks for all you have done. you are an invaluable resource.

Hi, Norman! I spent almost an entire night at your website. It is great. tons of info. I have been looking for for a long time.I am very new in this photography world. The time I really started was when I was living in CO. After I purchased an Olympus C3000, I started to shot more. I used to work for Qwest. Since they always keep me busy so I couldn't do too much. Last year right after 911, I moved back with my family in Sydney. As I can't find an IT job here, I put more time into photography. I just setup a website to put my work together.Almost all the pictures I took were from my recent backpacking trip in Australia. I have some back in CO but no much. I really like to have advises from you if you have time to stop by my site. Also, I will spend more time to read through your website. I am sure I will have lots of questions and I have to bug you in the future.

Thanks a lot for putting all these useful knowledge together to share. I am looking forward to hearing back from you.

Regards,

Allan
