Scanned slides

Recommended Posts

Paul J    5,182

Hi All.  Below I have posted a number of my old slides scanned in with my new toy. Wife present to me for Christmas.  I selected a few at random and ended up scanning in around 20 boxes and all from 1983 / 84. Some juicy stuff I recorded from airshows at Mildenhall, Yeovilton and Biggin. I will post selected items here in this thread which I will re title when appropriate. A

 

To start with some Gatwick shots. No real date time but around early 80s or maybe earlier or a tad later. But I must apologise for quality but I think its subject matter that will count. But I do have a lot of really nice ones!  Civvy and Military!   Mostly taken on my long gone Nikon FM.

Hi. Just before I turn for the night and get ready for work tomorrow, I thought I would post a few teasers of my Military selection. This little batch are from Mildenhall and I think it was 1978 because that was when the EC-121 last appeared over here.

Enjoy:

As I said, lots more goodies to come if you are interested.  I have around 6000 to sort through. The ultimate aim is to dispose of them as I need to de clutter the house a bit....

Just scanned a few more but not posted here yet but the exciting news is I found that I can edit all my pics such as enhancing them and renmoving spots and blemishes! This will keep me from my plastic building doldrum for longer and busier!

nice trip down memory lane there! Keep them coming.

I always remember the big orange going over the top in the early 80's and Arrow was a regular in Shannon

 

I was going to buy the epson v700 but decided to go for the Nikon 60mm macro and the slide copier adapter, it worked out cheaper.

It also copied the slides way quicker and gave more natural looking copies.

Thanks for sharing those mages.  

 

I'm a bit surprised at how big the Caravelle is compared to the Comet, even knowing that the former has the front fuselage of the latter.

 

Your Canberra is actually a T. 17, converted from a B. 2. The Mk. 7 is a photo reconnaissance version.

I really need to go back and 'doctor' those pics posted above now I have seen how much better they look when done.

Thanks for sharing those pics, Paul.  What scanner are you using?  I probably have some late-70s pics from Duxford and Newark that I'd like to digitize but I'm not sure what's the best scanner to use.  Any advice would be very welcome.

 

Cheers,
Mark

Hi. The one I have got was from Maplins. As a Crimbo prezzie. The make  is ION Slides Forever. It does 35mm slides( obviously) and 35 mm negatives. I have yet to try that part of it. Very easy to set up following the disk upload. Its quite basic but does the job

 

I'll be posting a few more later this week.

Hi Paul

if you  want  to get rid of  the originals I bet you could sell them on ebay, even if you did  them in batches for ease of disposal.

 

I suggest (if you  are not already doing this)  keeping a copy of  the origianl scan AND the 'cleaned up' version,  as it's only  some  disc space.

 

thank  for sharing, great images

cheers
