A what!? A 7x17cm?? :confused: That sounds odd and no doubt it would present a problem given that the Epson trays only support the 6x17 size, so you're losing the tops/bottoms? Most educational. I wonder if Boots the Pano Man knows about this obscure format...
A quote of $30 for a 7x17cm drum scans sounds strangely appealing; the end result would be a 70-80Mb for a smallish print (I know one photographer shooting 6x17 and 6x24 who ends up with a 700mb file!!); how big is the file size and intended (300dpi) print? I scan at 4800 then downsample to 300dpi for despecking (6x7, 30x25cm output).
I'd like to eyeball your 7x17cm; is it a home made Wallace and Grommet or a pro-level get-up. I don't have a pano at present; it's having surgery for focus anomaly.
7x17 INCH, Gary….
Big sucker. At the moment, I have to do 2 scans with the 8x10 film guide and stitch them. And, Elements 6 is rat-turd for doing this.
I have had a film holder made out of ABS plastic, but I need to mill out one more section so that it (hopefully) works on the hi-res lens on the V700.
But, I'd really like to see a 2400dpi scan of the 7x17! (Over a gig file, I think).
I have used Image Science in North Melbourne (...or West Melbourne?) in the past, a few years ago though. I know they used Imacon's for their small-medium format stuff, don't recall what their LF setup was though.
Ah, so! INCHES!
That would be, then, lemme see.... 19x42cm (!)
Losh man, that's ... BIG... :pouty:
it seems mark is selling his heidelberg. wish i had 7 grand stashed...
Maybe he is buying a V700....:whistling:
PageSet Australia still has a scanning service - They are located in Mt Waverley, Melbourne.
They have 2 drum scanners and a flatbed.
The drum scanners are both Heidelberg, 1 Tango XL and a Primescan which can both do A2 size.
The flat bed is a Heidelberg TAngo which can do A3 extra.
Their phone number is (03) 8542 5555 or (03) 8542 5517
There are a number of programs which handle stitching of panoramas and EVERY ONE of them would have to be better than Elements 6.

I'm in Keilor East - North-western suburbs.
Thanks, JDC. Didn't know about this one!

BTW, I'm up in the hills, but will catch up with you one day for a beer/coffee/Urbal tea! Again, thanks for the offer!
