    Drum scanning recommendations.

    I've been looking through the options for drum scanning and have become a little confused.

    Can anybody recommend a good service? Can be anywhere in Oz.

    Thanks.

    my suggestion is matt lauder in nsw. he is able to drum-scan from 35mm to 6x24cm.

    his prices are reasonable and most of what he has shot he has scanned himself so he knows what he's doing.

    for 4x5, you may need to look elsewhere.

    Thanks, Spatz.

    Unfortunately, in my world (and as goods as they are), Imacons aren't drum scanners.

    I'm after proven results on something like a Heidelburg.

    Try David Kay (google him) good but not cheap. Or, above Blanco Negro, try Shane Pearce 0404 981 323 shaynepearce@gmail.com

    No worries, Pat.

    I might put a spreadsheet together with the prices I've received back. Might be of some use to others.

    Why drum scanning, for the expense it is, over the option to scan at very high quality yourself and control all the detail from start to finish? A drum scan isn't the end of it; in most labs, it would be very easy to tack on $200 in additional costs to spec. If it really does matter, PRISM in North Melbourne will do it. Imacon is an old scanner; they use a Kodak and it is darned good. Just not cheap, never was and never will be.

    Gary,

    Simple reason: I can't get a good enough pairing for stitching from my V700 when scanning 7x17.

    So, I figured that if I'm going to get a scan done, it might as well be on a decent machine.

    I've got some (somewhat hard to believe) prices of under $30 for a DRUM scan of one of these sheets from a couple of sources, so I thought that I might give it a crack.

    I dig Prism; before I moved to the other side of the city, I used these guys pretty much exclusively.
