Looks like your scan operator has a very good profile for the Ektar-100 Matt. Unfortunately, when I upgraded to the newest version of Silverfast for my CS 9000ED, the profile for Ektar-100 failed to show up in Negafix! Tres annoying.....
Steve, nice work, I love nostalgic stuff like this.....
Hmmm. Matt, did you uninstall the previous version of Silverfast before upgrading to the newest version?JPlomley: Interesting. I have a Epson VP750 and it's in the Negafix for that scanner. Of course, I don't remember if I sent those to CA or did them in Seattle.
The customer service for Silverfast is excellent. They answer emails right away. You might want to ask them about the Ektar profile for your version.
Cheers Cindy. Just to clarify, I'm using Silverfast AI Studio which is the turbo-charged version, so I'm a bit miffed that when I went from v6.4 to v6.6r7 the supposed Ektar-100 profile was missing. I do have Vuescan as well...perhaps its time to give that a try. Although I really do like the Multiple Exposure (ME) function of Silverfast for B&W neg scanning.
I contacted Silverfast about releasing my serial number for the new owner of my V700 scanner and they were super-quick to respond and comply. It might be worth an email just to let them know that you are disappointed to not have the Ektar profile.
This is the Ilford film that the lab said they were seeing some rolls with bad emulsion. The processed film was really washed out. I liked some of the photos so these have been rescued (somewhat). Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.

Matt....Your Getting Dang Good At This! Awesome!
Lots of amazing images on this thread! I have some catching up to do...
Proudly presenting... my first film photo in almost 25 years. I developed the film myself earlier this evening, and stuck it in my Epson Artisan 810 multi-function machine (because that's all I have for the next couple of weeks). It's definitely not a film scanner...

Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt

Have been enjoying the photos here.
I've just (re)discovered the joys of film after a good 12 years away from it (not to mention discovering the joys of shooting a film 'M' -- way nicer than my M8). I'm shooting B&W and doing lab dev/scans. Not sure I have the time and/or inclination to do it myself.
Sure is nice to use my lenses on a "full frame" camera .

Clair & Matthomas....Great Work!
Ok, so if you want the stuff you shoot with your M to look like you used a pinhole camera and printed on corrugated cardboard, the Epson Artisan 810 multifunction machine is the scanner for you!!!
My guess is that you probably don't want all of your photos to have this texture? It's slightly like something an inkjet printer does when it's running out of ink. How do you actually scan the negatives with that printer? Cheers, Matt
All with M7 and Kodak Ektar 100. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt
Vibrant color & nice compositions Matt! # 1 for me!
Steve/Lloyd: I like the way she's chimping over her designer shades. Anybody recognize the camera?
Mathomas: And, I've been shooting more B & W. Ektar is a pretty fantastic film.
Yogi: I'll have to look at the other photos on the roll and see if i can figure out which lens. The IQ on that one was exceptional (camera/lens/film).
I shot a roll of Fuji Reala last weekend, I asked the lab for a picture CD, and while it's not perfect, it's a WHOLE LOT better than my MacGuyer solution.
Haven't quite got to my test rolls of B & W, yet. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.
