    Hi guys,

    I was looking for some help at improving my images.

    I have been shooting 120 film myself, then developing and then scanning.

    I have a canoscan 8800f and there is a 100% crop attached.

    As you can see the image is quite noisy... I believe it is noise and not grain.

    I was wondering, do you think this is a limitation of my scanner, developing and perhaps even photo taking.

    It was scanned at 125% at 1200dpi through silverfast!

    Thanks

    Flatbed scanners always seem to be lagging with film scans. The best way to figure out if this is the scanner is to have a photo shop scan one on their dedicated film scanner and see what the difference is.

    Here is a link to a Flickr group discussing scanning film with the Canon you have.

    I use VueScan with my Epson V700, and have noticed that a lot of such noise is reduced when I set VueScan to take one pass with the infrared filter.
