Hello community. I just received a v700 at a good price off eBay. It was advertised as being in perfect condition but when it arrived, it reeked of smoke... Smells kind of like it was in a house fire or maybe something smoked, I don't know the history. I cleaned it well and the smoke smell is entirely gone. Additionally, it did not smell on the inside of the scanner giving me some hope the optics would be fine. The link at the bottom of the post is a full scan from a 6x8 negative at 6400dpi and scaled back to 3200 in Photoshop for easier uploading. Sharpening and ICE turned are off. Scanned using Vuescan saved as RAW. I mounted the slide on a homemade wet-mount with Gamsol as the fluid, cheap ANR glass, and acetate (A guide I somewhat followed). I adjusted the height to fit the focal length of my scanner. I tried playing with the red green blue analog gain to make the histograms end close together as suggested online but I'm not experienced enough to know what is correct. I scanned at Red: 1, Green: 1.5, Blue: 1.5. My camera: GX680iii Lens: GX 100mm possibly shot near wide open. Scanner: Smoky Epson V700 Film: Portra 400, self developed using BVY's Flexicolor chem list (Thanks bvy. My negatives look great!) I know most of you do not have the time to look at this and that is fine. If you can fire up photoshop / GIMP, here is the described negative: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1nebGTZ5wD3PZvJ6aww0uTX38wXrqB3A2/view?usp=sharing I don't know what I am looking for and if I want to try and return this scanner, I need to do so quickly.
