London, England – Part 1
If you have looked at my ‘About’ page, you will know I have been around cameras for a few years, so I am well versed with film cameras as well as digital! This means that I have thousands of strips of 35mm negatives, which are sitting around doing nothing! Having thought that it was about time that I started scanning them into the Mac, I bought a Canon Canoscan 5600F Scanner! Well, it has got me stumped! I have tried all sorts of settings but cannot seem to get a final image that is not either too grainy or just downright unusable! Yet, at the time I took them, the lab prints I had done of some of them looked great – smooth, well coloured and sharp! I read reviews of the scanner before purchase and all the reports I read were complementary, so I assume it is something I am doing myself, so I will keep persevering! I thought it might be quite nice to put a selection of the best of my scanned 35mm film shots of London that I took in the late 1990s. Comments would be appreciated and any advice as to the scanner settings to produce the best 35mm film scans would be indispensable! Thanks and enjoy!

I have been to the top of the gold cross. You can go up that far but have to climb a steep ladder one at a time to have a look!
