I am having an issue that keeps showing up with, what I believe is a scanning problem.
My setup is as follows:
- Lightsource: Skier Sunray Box.
- Camera: Lumix G9
- Film holder: Sandwiched between two anti-glare glass plates. (I had the same problem with the regular film holders from Skier, with no glass. It seems not to be a reflection problem).
The problem that keeps showing up is how the color green is rendered in the inversion from the scans. My first guess was that it was a processing problem. I did a project containing lots of green hues, photographing forests and jungles. I had processed the negatives myself and was convinced I had messed up the processing step. Since then, I have sent all my negs to the lab for processing.
The other day I was scanning some old negs, lab processed, and I noticed the same problem again in the green areas, often leaves, grass, or green neon sign. I have attached some pictures of the issue below.
I’m currently trying to find another camera body that I can try, and see if the same problem occurs. I updated the camera software to the latest version, but it didn’t help. It is hard to see from the purple areas directly on the neg, but I do not believe the problem is on the negatives, it looks ok to me.
However, has anyone come across a similar problem? I have tried to search in several forums, but can’t find anyone having the same issue. So what do you guys think? What is this?
To eliminate possible errors:
- Scanning in RAW
- Adobe RGB color space
- Tried exposure bracketing (HDR) and single.
- Masking out the light source
- Reset and installed the latest camera software.
