XXLtdLab Posted July 6, 2011 Report Share Posted July 6, 2011 I have been having some issues with the Frontier I use to scan my customer and personal film with. The thing makes decent 8x10" prints, even bigger on Lustre paper, but looking at the scans on the screen, or output to glossy, they just don't look "filmic". There isn't grain I'm seeing, it's noise. I have a feeling it is probably the sharpening/aliasing software for the scan lines as the imager moves across the film. Granted this is far better than say an analog wire photo scanner from the '60s, but it just doesn't look as good as optical. I want our film scans to look as close as possible to a well-focused, properly stopped-down optical print. Any advice on how to calibrate, set the sharpening to get the utmost out of the Fuji Frontier? I don't expect it to compete with our HR-500, but it should be more than adequate for quick proof jobs, and I don't find it so seeing the two different scanners' files compared side-by-side.
