    Dear all,

    I have been in analogue for so far 3 months, I took all my film develop in pro lab, and I scan it myself using Epson V500.

    Things (I thought) were going well not until yesterday I decided to 'scan' it with my Fujifilm S5 Pro, shooting in RAW, then invert it to positive in Photoshop CS3. Something pretty awful happened. I 'scan' it using the white backlight of my laptop, then crop them to show you all.

    I did not accept this (photo attached) happen. On the left, the lighting was from indoor itself (consider the right color for me), where on right, it was a cloudy weather. That day, I was using Fujifilm 400H Pro, rated at 200 and shot.

    My question is, the one on left was definitely correct color, but why the color on right such blueish? Is it because overexpose, or something else? Why the color has such a huge offset? (The rest of the outdoor shots were like that when I 'scan' with my camera)

    Any idea?

    Thanks,
    uchan

    what temperature was the WB on your S5?
    you should "callibrate" it to the temperature of your laptopscreen.
    Fujifilm 400H Pro is a daylight film, so the picture on the left should be reddish, the one on the right correct.
    i can only imagine you didn't set the right temperature for this "scanning".

    btw, why "scan" with your S5 if you have a V500??

    Maarten, the temperature was 2950 on my S5Pro. Just now, I reopen my RAW, I manually inverted the tone curve, and tweaked the temperature, they were still the same - as in the photo on left become more uglier and the right become even more uglier.

    Yes, I notice that, 400H Pro is a daylight film, just wondering what happen when using in those conditions that is not daylight.

    I was playing it out of random. What a surprise to see it.

    uchan, you scanned it with the filter to make balance the indoor shot. This is a scanning problem and should by on hybridphoto.com
