Re: Silverfast 8 for Minolta 5400 and 5400II

Any updates? Even an update of 6.6 allowing it to run in OSX Yosemite would be nice or Win 8.1. As I mentioned in a previous post I was able to install SF 6.6 in Windows 8.1 using the methods described in earlier posts. I can scan one frame, but upon completion of scanning, SF 6.6 locks up. Seems li...

Re: Silverfast 8 for Minolta 5400 and 5400II

Just checking in. I'm still dual booting -- Win XP to Win 8.1, but pretty much only when I need to do some scanning. It sure would be nice not to have to boot to XP especially with support ending for XP in one week! :-? My son has given me his old Macbook Pro which is running OS 10.92 Mavericks. Tha...

Re: Silverfast 8 for Minolta 5400 and 5400II

I get the RSS feed for SF version updates. I noticed that the latest one http://www.silverfast.com/versions-history/en.html shows a bug fix for the 5400 which surprised me because I had not seen any announcement that SF8 was available for our scanners so I checked and indeed it is, however for Mac O...

Re: Silverfast 8 for Minolta 5400 and 5400II

The Minolta Dimagescan 5400 II is a very good scanner and I am very pleased with the results I'm getting with Silverfast HDR Suite 6.6 in Windows XP 32 bit. However it will soon be two years since I purchased it (after SF 8.0 had been released) with the hope that one day I would get the upgrade to 8...

Re: Silverfast 8 for Minolta 5400 and 5400II

Update to my previous post (which has not been approved yet): I was curious -- installed the dimagescan utility and that seems to work OK in Win 8. Now Silverfast connects to the scanner, however there are bugs. The scan progress bar doesn't function correctly. After scanning is complete, Win 8 open...

Kain, I've been following the related thread on Dyxum for a while now here: http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/how-to-run-old-minolta-scanners-on-vista-7_topic80321_page1.html . I have been dual booting between Win XP 32 bit and Win 8 64 bit. As most photographers are aware, many other photo editing progra...

Re: Silverfast 8 for Minolta 5400 and 5400II

I'm still waiting! I purchased Silverfast 6.6 shortly after the release of version 8, with the understanding that you would upgrade my software at no cost, but still no software for my Minolta Dimagescan 5400 II. Can at least the HDR part of the software be upgraded? I'm on hold with purchasing SF f...

Re: Silverfast 8 for Minolta 5400 and 5400II

I'm still waiting (patiently) for SF 8 for my 5400 II. Can you provide any update as to when is will be available? Since my original post I've purchased Archive Suite ver. 6.6. I'm very pleased with it. I'd like to buy SF for my Epson 500 flatbed, but not before my Minolta SF is updated! :D Regards,...

Re: IT8 calibration in HDR studio

I'm having a little trouble grasping this concept -- sorry! Not with the Auto IT8 calibration, but with the IT8 calibration in HDR Studio. I have calibrated my Minolta 54000 II with the Kodak Ektachrome target and also with the Kodachrome target, since most of my slides are Kodachrome. I'm scanning ...

Re: ICE in SF8

Alejandro,

But what about scanners that you never have implemented iSRD for, like my Minolta 5400 II? I'll gladdly take iSRD over ICE if it is available for my Minolta! If not maybe I'd better stick with 6.6. Of course I may have to, if you never release ver. 8 for my scanner. :D

Re: Silverfast 8 for Minolta 5400 and 5400II

Thank you, Alejandro!

Appreciate the clarification! The fact that the 5400 and 5400 II are on the list of scanners that SF ver. 8 will be available fo, is the "positive" you mentioned.

Silverfast 8 for Minolta 5400 and 5400II

I realize that Silverfast 8 is still in the early stages of release. I see that CD/DVD versions are still not released. Also that we Minolta 5400 and 5400 II users have to wait. Any idea how long the wait will be and when the disc versions will be available? Also i notice that only the download vers...

Re: Agfacolor reversal film from 1970-1976.

Thanks, Alejandro! Its not Kodachrome! I disassembled a few more mounts over the weekend. The film is all Agfa CT18. No other markings. Can I use IR dust and scratch removal with Agfa CT18, which I understand is an Agfa process, not unlike Kodachrome. I can give it a try and see what happens, but I ...

Agfacolor reversal film from 1970-1976.

I have many boxes of Agfa slides processed from 1970 to about 1976. The film was processed and mounted by Agfa in Germany. The blue and white mounts say Agfacolor, Agfa-Gevaert, Germany. I'm assuming (but I don't really know) that this is not E6 film and is a CT-18 like film that uses the Ap-41 proc...

Ektar 100 profile for the 5400 II?

I see that the Ektar 100 negafix profile has been added for many scanners, but has it been added for the Minolta 5400II?
This is the film I use most currently. Sorry if I've missed something, and it was added previously.

Thanks,

Kelly
