Am I missing James answer?

When I first saw the photos on Flickr I thought maybe the roll wasn't good and tight when it was finished, Alex. But after a second look here I think James has the right answer. The light strike is a bit too well defined to be a loose roll. Well done on getting one of the premier cameras, and doing it proud with your compositions.

Thanks for all these comments and suggestions. My friend (who now has myold scanner), and I have a mutual friend who may be able to set up a virtual machine for him. So I think, one way or another, he'll get it going.

If not, I may spend a few days doing his slides on my Epson V700.

Im afraid they are not compatible, hasselblad lenses have the shutter (one of them) in the lens, kiev ones they haven't, I guess their shutter is in the body.
I will have to save if I want the 50mm or buy a macro ring for close-up portraits.
So far the first it's to deal with the light leaks...

Thanks! I'm making my way through the boxes. Going away for the weekend, but should get back to it when I return. Mostly shots of New England houses so far, including some interesting interiors. Here's one of a location I was able to identify:

You may find lenses for the Kiev 88 will fit, but I'm not sure. You will need to do some research.

I've run into this problem in the past with two scanners. Alex is right. A virtual machine is a good option.

VMWare Player works very well. You can run Windows XP (or any version of Windows, DOS or Linux in the virtual machine). You can then have the VMWare session control the USB device, whether it be a scanner or CD drive.

There also is Oracle's VirtualBox, which I like but is more complicated to get to control a USB device.

If you need a Windows XP Pro install disk, let me know.

As PF said. My L210 is a home /small business model, not a pro type by any means. It works well for my needs.

This is in a different league from the folders, Alex! The Planar shows in the second image.

Hope you can catch that leak. Are there Russian lenses compatible with that body?

Thanks for these suggestions, too.

The old laptop may in fact be my friend's way to go. But Vuescan might work too. (I actually poohpoohed Vuescan to him beforehand because of my experience with it -- I could never get the setting exactly right; when i switched the Epson softwrae I hardly ever made mistakes.

Have you tried Vuescan? It has built-in drivers for a lot of older scanners that won't work on modern OS's.

This is cooler than me looking for old slides. Most I have to recover the color on but with plates there is no color to save.

Yeah, I agree with the small laptop solution

Hello,

Here is the first roll, well, I can only post 2 pics, there is a light leak on the A12 film back (my first guessing) and only one picture it was done quick enough to not be affected, but Im pretty happy with the result.
I already bought the trap light seals so in about 3-4 weeks I will do a second test.

Are they light leaks on the back or something else?


The only one which went fine, film is TRI-X 400 contrasty and little grainy comparing to my previous pictures.


Thanks for watching,
Alex

I've had nothing but troubles with virtual machines to use my Kodak Pakon F135 scanner on Win (the Pakon requires XP Professional).
I ended up buying a used laptop with XP Pro for $100, just for that. No issues anymore.

They told me down at the computer shop that if I wanted to use the Office files from my old XP Pro computer they would have to install Win 7 first. Seems that is the break point from the 32bit only Windows to the 64bit versions. Likely the driver for your old scanner is 32bit.
