I will either use The Dark Room to process and scan my film or get my film developed locally and scan it myself. For those rolls that I don’t send out to be scanned, I use an Epson V500 scanner and Silverfast 8 as my scanning software. I chose it over the standard scanning tools for a number of reasons. One of those reasons is its ability to do a multi-exposure that results in an increased dynamic range. On this set of pictures I used my trusty Mamiya 645 Pro TL and Kodak Portra 160 film, had the film developed locally and then scanned myself using the multi-exposure mode.
The results give me a better quality of picture then I can get using my best DSLR and lens. If you are looking for great scanning software, Silverfast is highly recommended.
