    Beautiful picture! Really love your MF shots as well! May I ask if the negative was pushed for this shot?

      Hi! Thank you!
      I have never pushed because I generally shoot everything box speed, but this shot might have been a tad underexposed and the Pakon tried to bring it up. Hence, the contrast.

    Hello Klo!

    I have a couple of questions about the Pakon F135, that I hope you can help answer:

    How well does it scan Kodak Tri-x? Does it require extra long post-production?

    What are your overall thoughts on the pakon f135?

    thanks kindly!

      Hi Cyrus,
      The Pakon is great and easy to use but it does have a bit of dust issue. Overall, not a lot of post-processing required other than spot cleaning dust and desaturating (the scans come out with a slight tint depending on the type of emulsion). It handles Tri-X beautifully.
