Dust on the brain

Bjarke Ahlstrand scanner

We do a lot of high quality, high resolution scans on our Hasselblad X1 high end scanner.

Kodak Technical Pan film, rated...

Unfortunatly, he had a point'n'shoot, where playing around with alternative ratings is impossible. Or is it?   I treat Portra 160 as 100, but develop it at standard timing.
