I just got NLP and I have been converting all my negatives and I love it so far! Now I am not sure if this is an issue with NLP or the DSLR I am using or the setup, but I am getting weird digital noise in some of my scans, especially in dark areas. Here are some examples of what I mean:
Taken on 35mm Ektar 100
Taken on 35mm Ultramax 400:
Zooming in 100% will reveal some weird noise that looks unsatisfactory to me. It is more apparent on dark areas.
However, when I scan MF film, I do not see any issues.
Taken on 120 Ektar 100, at the same plane and distance as the 35mm ones:
Any ideas of what could be causing the weird noise?
Some other information:
The negatives were scanned using a Nikon D3200 with 55mm micro Nikkor f/3.5 w/ M2 attachment using 100 ISO. My DSLR setup includes a Raleno light source, DIY film holders, a tripod and a remote shutter.
