Drum scanning service Screen DT-S1045AI Sydney Australia
I know this isn't strictly analog photography from start to finish, but film is the most important part of the equation.
I recently purchased a Screen DT-S1045AI and have spent the last five months getting up to speed in both mounting and scanning.
It's a very impressive piece of hardware, both in terms of size and capability.
So now I feel confident that I can offer drum scanning to other photographers.
I can do up to 12" x 18", though the largest I've done so far is 4'x5" sheet film and 6x17 rollfilm.
Max resolution is 8000 DPI and anything over 16384 DPI in either axis can be done via stitching together tiles.
I have tested this out on a 617 frame and the registration of the tiles was sub-pixel accurate.
It puts out the full 16 bit colour depth too.
I'm using calibrated Lacie Electron Blue monitors and the results from recent prints I had done from some scans were spot on.
I've begun to work with colour negatives also and have a workflow developing.
I'm in Sydney Australia, though that shouldn't be much of an issue with film being cheap to send via registered mail.
Anyway just wanted to put this out there for anyone that is interested contact me via PM or email for details email@example.com.
Also if anyone can suggest where else I might post to other photographers I'd appreciate it as I'm just starting out with the scanning service.

I would post this at the Hybrid forum > http://www.hybridphoto.com/forums/home.php or somewhere like "passion for pixels.com"
Thanks for the tip. The hybridphoto forums are great.
No problem, just remember that if I send you some 4x5 trannies to scan..
Whereabouts in Sydney are you Glenn and do you have prices decided yet?

From his website, I'd say he's in Avalon.
Which is puuuurrrfect for me: I'm in Warriewood!
But I'd say he'd be able to service the bigger Sydney area without much added cost in ports.
Keep us posted, Glenn: definitely interested!
