Have old photos, negatives, and slides that you'd like to convert to digital files?   The ideaMILL has a new scanner where you can do just that. (The scanner even removes dust, scratches, and surface defects so your digital file looks great!)  Reserve a time slot, bring your photos, etc. and save your files to your USB.

CALIBRATE YOUR COMPUTER MONITOR

For those members who are concerned about having their computer screen brightness calibrated to levels established by CAPA (Canadian Association for Photographic Art) and PSA (Photographic Society of America) the following are their guidelines.

- Using the attached white card open it on your computer and view it in full frame view, then go to your settings folder and then go to your display settings.

- Using your camera as a light meter set your ISO setting to 200.

- If you have Aperture Priority, set it to "A" and set your lens opening to f4 or f5.6, this will be dependent on the lens you use.

- Filling the entire viewfinder of your camera with the white card.Take the light reading.

- Raise or lower the brightness level of your computer screen until you get a light reading of f4 @ 1/60th of a sec. or f5.6 @ 1/30th of a sec. this will probably correspond with a brightness level of 30% on your computer.

WHITE CARD IS SHOWN BELOW.

- Mark that setting down so that if you need to raise the brightness level for other types of work you can quickly return it to the photo setting. This brightness level will correspond with viewing levels used by CAPA for their competitions.
