Does anyone have the tech to copy an old slide for me using a camera to output a raw file ? Commercial processors all seem to scan then output as a jpeg and as this slide is quite old it is going to need a lot of work done to it so I would like to have a raw file to work on.

 

Happy to pay a reasonable fee to get this done and I can include a thumbdrive with the slide to transfer the file to.

Where are you? TIFF is typically almost as good as RAW, and maximum quality jpeg is really quite good too. Do you want a photo or do you want it to go through a scanner? Based on pretty much no knowledge of slides but a good knowledge of photography I'd imagine a light source behind it would be essential.

Auckland. I havent had much to do with Tiff files but I know that raw files give you much more room for correction than a compressed jpeg does. I believe there is a specific attachment that holds the slide and connects onto the camera, was hoping someone would have this settup and the know-how.

A RAW file does have more latitude from a camera, but a TIFF file is just as good in this situation as you can easily control the exposure of the slide. A maximum quality jpeg is basically uncompressed. If you can't find someone who can produce a TIFF I think a high resolution high quality jpeg will be fine.

Hey

 

Place I work at digitizes slides, We normally output as a JPEG as that's what the scanner we usually use outputs.
If you send it though I can scan with out flatbed scanner that can do a tiff as well but the quality is generally not as high,
See example below

timmmay is correct about the light being important, Needs to be perfectly defused!
