These are the DSLR scans of the Kodak Portra 400 film strip. The scans were captured with a Nikon D5500 24MP (APS-C) DX camera and a Nikon Micro Nikkor 60mm f2.8G ED lens. The lens is the same lens used to make the film scans. The scans were made with custom built lightbox using high-CRI LEDs. The light source LEDs were adjusted to approximately 60K. The exposure was set with the camera in Aperture Priority mode with the aperture was set at f5.6 with an auto-exposure setting for speed adjustment.
