    exif data for film

    No,I have never seen a negative with any EXIF info on it.I am sure that you would need some special accomodation provided by the camera to record that.I use Vuescan with all of my scanners.If there was a call for that in his software I am quite sure that he would include it,Mr Hamrick is very...

    exif data for film

    Some of the later Nikon film cameras had that capability,maybe the F5,F6 or F100 I think. They had a slot for a memory card that recorded all the info for each shot to be read after you removed the film for developing Ron G

    What camera do I need?

    There are plenty of them around on the auction sites,the one thing to watch for is the battery compartment door,that was the weak point on those cameras.The latches break on them.If you don't mind using the power supply even that won't be an issue.The power supplies are less than 10 bucks at...

    How can I get my negative scans to look like my prints?

    The scan will be the same whether the film is upside down or right side up.The scanner will never know the difference.You can usually flip the image in software with most scanner programs or any of the graphic/picture programs will do it if you happen to scan it upside down by mistake.Ron G

    How can I get my negative scans to look like my prints?

    You need to make the adjustments in the scanner software to see your negative.I use Vuescan but most any scanner software will enable you to adjust brightness and contrast and tailor the upper and lower curves to bring out the details that you want. I find it very interesting that flatbed...
