Hi guys,
So recently I short ended some fuji vivid 160t and shot some SLR stills on the stuff, doing a variety of tests. I now want to get it scanned. Because of the size of the negative being closer to that of vista vision I need to get it scanned somewhere that can handle it. I have decided to use Hasselblad's X5 scanner and wondered if anyone knew what I should set it to to the equivalent of a 10-bit log scan? What contrast settings on the X5 scanner are equivalent to a 10-bit log scan on say a spirit 2k?

that scanner is a drum scanner no? It's standard triple or quadruple pass scan should give you a 16-bit image that will all the density from the film frame output as a tiff usually. I am guessing, but it probably will be better than a spirit. If you go to a pro lab, their scanner hooked up to the mini lab can give you a good "daily" image that might do for you at a fraction of the price.
