    Default Scanning old film

    Alright, I'm helping someone scan their bunch of old films, which one would you prefer?

    The greenish colour faded picture


    Or the attempt to restore the colour back?

    Certainly the restored one will be more preferrable.
    But scanning old films or even old prints is a tedious job...

    Yeah, so much negatives! Hahaha.

    But somehow looking at those memories they've captured is quite interesting. :3, makes you really wonder how was life back then...

    Wow, that was good information.
    My thanks to you.
    At least when I need to do that in the future, I know I got to look for Epson V500.
