Kodak Ellegro

Unread postby strong_epoxy » Thu May 19, 2016 9:24 pm

I picked up two O2s and an Indigo2 R4000 with software supporting a Kodak image scanner. The ancient scanner wouldn't fit in a truck so it's being recycled. I found a brochure for the system and took a screenshot of the application before the machines were repurposed.

The previous owner said the scanner didn't include an optional ICE feature that would first scan in infrared, then color, then automatically retouch based on the infrared scan. Cool stuff.

Older photofinishing services often used drum scanners... they can have optical resolution up to 12,000 dpi and higher contrast than any other available scanner. Sometimes prices were in the $100,000 range. They have absolutely no competition from flatbed scanners, even today.

That's neat, I had an earlier Kodak PCD system for a short moment - got it on Craigslist for free because of the SPARCstation 2 it used. I think it was a PCD 2000 scanner. I think it had the PCD writer too. The scanner was a bit clunky and needed fiddling between every frame. It was quite slow and the quality wasn't enough to justify the slow. I put it on CL and gave it all up. I recall it compressed the images for the PCD before writing them out to disk, so you could never get a file better than what was on those old photo cds, and no interface for getting them - they really wanted you to write to the photo cd media. It made sense for minimum wage + $0.60 photo counter clerks, but not so much for archiving my own film.

Any plans for the machines? Or just building out the fleet?

They'll all be rebuilt and sold on eBay to pay for themselves, that Onyx2 I just picked up, and an amazing Fuel I also stumbled upon on eBay recently. Look forward to posts about it shortly.

off topic, but Fuel, I'm intrigued.

You had access to a 4050 scanner? Niiice.
I have the local ability to buy a drum scanner for about $300 but like the 4050 it's almost the size of a shipping skip.
