  • Varine Varine:
    I'll also probably need to set up a server at some point because these scans take up a huge amount of space. I'll worry about that when I have an office though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am sure Ghan could give you some solid advice on the Server stuff
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I hear that the latest IPhones and Samsungs have some of the best cameras out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    phone cameras are good for sending pics on whatsapp, but no good for macro photography
  • jonas jonas:
    I think you should buy a used macro lens, do you already have a system camera?
  • Varine Varine:
    No, I'm still looking into them and kind of leaning towards a Rebel T7 at the moment because it's pretty cheap and lenses seem pretty easy to come by. Used ones are only like 3-400 dollars, which is much cheaper than I was planning
  • jonas jonas:
    I can't really recommend you any specific lens or body due to lack of knowledge, but in my experience camera shops are very helpful, especially those that also sell used parts
  • Varine Varine:
    There's only one camera shop in my town and they seem to specialize in film, but I have time before I need it. I'm not in a rush so I'll keep researching them
  • jonas jonas:
    I think since you have such specific needs, you should find a way to give a try for different systems without having to commit to one
  • jonas jonas:
    It would suck to spend 400$ on a system that doesn't have the capability you need
  • jonas jonas:
    and it will probably take a couple of tries to get the settings right
  • Varine Varine:
    It would but I can also just make sure I can return them. The system I have works, it's pretty straightforward and I tested it with a camera I have. All it really is is a little cartridge that holds the transparency film and a white light source behind it that projects the image into the lens
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll have to fuck with the light a bit and try some different lighting methods to get color accuracy, but I have IT8 targets for that
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    get that color accuracy :)
  • Varine Varine:
    They're really helpful for calibrating things because I'm really colorblind, so I'm not great at doing it by eye

  • Varine Varine:
    Well the long, slow slog of winter has officially begun here
  • Varine Varine:
    I have a bunch of community service I have to do, and I have a feeling there will be a lot of snow shoveling involved now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    don't know why people choose to live in that kind of weather :)
  • Varine Varine:
    Well
  • Varine Varine:
    My job is here
  • Varine Varine:
    I was born here man I didn't choose shit
  • Varine Varine:
    And also, I keep moving away and it doesn't get any better. I moved to San Antonio and shit froze there AND we had blackouts
