Got my Howtek set up again after two years in storage/intercontinental relocation. Here is a sample from an 8x10" tranny, scanned at 2000 dpi. The crop is the bolt thread in the center, at full resolution. A bit oversharpened in the excitement - the pepper grain is a consequence of the fine aperture of the drum scanner rather than film grain. Capture was on E100VS using a Cooke XVa (rear element) 473 mm wide open at f/11. Two tripods of course. Come to think of it, this is almost 1:1. Maybe 1:1.5. Great macro lens hehe.
I'm relieved to see that the scanner survived the shipping - the only service shop worldwide is Aztek in LA.
