    Date 05 Jul 2018
    Berlin, 2015 I wonder how long “film” will remain part of Fujifilm’s product line up? This is the sort of thing that keeps me up at night, though only usually after my 2 year-old has declared 3am “have a play” time. But I digress. 2018 has seen Fuji-‘film’ discontinue their black…

    My Pacific Image PF120 Pro (l) and Nikon Coolscan 5000ED (r) in happier days Dear readers, I have been living a lie. For the past little while, I’ve assured you that I was settled on film scanners. That I had made my (flat)bed and was relatively content sleeping in it:…
