RGB/Seattle Film Works Negatives -- Converted to digital -- Color Correction?
Posted on 2006-07-03
I've got literally hundreds of negatives on film which was marketed in the 80's by an operation in Hollywood called RGB. It's Eastman 5247 film or something like that.
At this time, I'm interested in converting these to digital format before they dryrot away, but I know that I could never have a local operation create prints from them, because they didn't have the proper filters to color correct them. Maybe that was a ploy by RGB to insure that you could only get prints/slides from them, at least that was what the local photofinishers claimed.
I'm wondering if there are any tools in Photoshop (or similar applications) which could, after I have some service house scan these negatives into positives on CD or some such, correct the colors appropriately?
For that matter, if anybody can suggest a good cheap service house, or a low cost method of doing the digitizing myself from these, like I said, literally hundreds of negatives, those suggestions will be welcomed.
