Found Film Ukraine Project

No.3946050 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hey guys,

After some requests, I'm going to share the process of scanning a Soviet film archive I found on the front-line of the Donbas war a few years ago.

I have finally found some time to get my teeth into this, and a few companies have sent over gear and software to help me out.

You can find the full story behind the discovery and project here. In reality, it's a bit less dramatic than it's made out in the articles.

So far I have scanned around 30 rolls of film, and have about 200 still to go - maybe more. I'm not super experienced with digitizing film, so any advice and tips to improve the process are very appreciated!

Setup
Canon 5D IV + Canon 100mm F2.8 Macro
Kaiser Lightboard plus pixl-latr film holder
Negative Lab Pro and Lightroom
Running display to tv for focusing, and using some random trigger.

I will keep u guys updates thought the process over the next couple of weeks and share some of the pics I uncover.
