Question about Tamarack ArtiScan 2400FS Film Scanner

2 Answers

Quality degradation I have had the 2400FS for about 8 yrs and have used it with great original results. Over the years, the image quality on film scans has suffered. It looks like some internal glass window needs cleaning. The image has developed dirty (noise?) along the left side of the film looking at the front. Does anyone have a parts drawing of the internals or a service manual? I need to disassemble it to clean the offending surface. TIA

Read your comment on the Tamarack ArtiScan 2400FS Film Scanner. I purchase one without an ac power cord. Can you tell me the amperage/voltage/model number data off the power cord? Does it have a DC in voltage rating? I am going to try to get a comparable one at Radio Shack. Thanks!

Amp transmitting fuzzy picture


It could be dirty contacts, corroded connectors inside, or dirty from atmospheric pollution or even dust.

Other degradation may result from a solder joint developing corrosion now, or a diode getting leaky.

It is repairable, but it is a time investment.

Do you still make the 600 film for the polaroid one step auto focus camera


FixYa don't, as FixYa has never made any tangible products of any description.

Polaroid don't either, they ceased production a few years ago and all remaining stocks are (even more) expensive and will no longer work except in modified cameras as the built-in film batteries are now flat.

But you can get newly manufactured compatible photo packs from The Impossible Project. Click the link for details, but please bear in mind that this material is best thought of as being a different medium to the original which works in your camera. It does not produce the same results as the original film, but can produce some effects which were difficult to achieve with the original material. The website gives details, but the main one is that the film is nowhere near as fade resistant: either scan the images you wish to keep or buy their new Dry Age (dehydration) kit to preserve original images. Also you only get 8 shots per pack compared to the original 10 as the new material is slightly thicker so only 8 photos fit into the cartridge.

Please take a moment to rate my answer, and post a comment if anything I've typed needs further explanation.

What type of film would I use for a dakota rz 2000 35mm ? And do you think that its worth 80 dollars?


The camera itself uses standard 35mm film. You choose the "film speed" according to what you intend to use the camera for, but ISO200 is easy to obtain and good for most things.

The Dakota RZ-2000 is simply awful. It's a very cheaply made design and suffers from really poor build quality and has dreadful, image-blurring and very noisy mirror slap. Th lenses it was originally supplied with were also of inferior quality. I personally wouldn't buy it at any price, but it's certainly not worth $80 when better quality, major name (but older) 35mm models are now effectively often worthless and can be obtained for nothing on FreeCycle and Freegle. I get all of my 35mm equipment from there. Recently I've even had perfect, boxed and near-unused Nikon and Canon Autofocus models, but I personally prefer the older manual focus SLR's such as the excellent Olympus OM1n.

How do i use the mode setting to insure quality pictures in gloomy weather conditions


Something we have all been wrestling with over the years, LOL.
quality pictures in gloomy weather conditions ? I suggest using the flash as often as you can in those conditions, and get yourself a tripod.
When the skies turn grey, there's less light, so the camera keeps the shutter open longer, which means more likelihood of a blurred image due 2 camera movement. Flash use speeds up the shutter, but will use more battery power. Another issue: with 100 ASA film, the flash is only good for about 12 feet. Distance improves with higher ASA film, but quality suffers due to film grain.

If the image quality is poor while transmitting video over the Internet using video enabled programs such as MSN Messenger, Yahoo! or AOL Instant Messenger, your connection speed to the Internet directly affects the image quality of the transmitted video. Corporate LAN, DSL/cable modem connections will result in the best image quality experience, while dial-up connections may result in choppy and overall poor quality because of the slower connection speed. Even broadband connections such as DSL/cable modem may experience choppy video at times because of Internet traffic or slow upload speeds. If the image appears clearly in the camera software, most likely your Internet connection may be responsible for the poor image quality in your video program.

Super8 preservation.


Hi! I will help you now. I got the name of a Hungarian company, who transferred so many reels for me. I paid about $200 incl shipping for a box of Super8 reels. Will never ever try it my self. The quality was awesome, crisp clear, wonderful restored colours, etc. The whole procedure incl. shipping time took no longer than 3 weeks. May the below link will help you. The page is only in Hungarian, but I translated it with google and bing translator. BTW the guy on the phone speaks fluently English, he used to live in the USA for many years. Just an option, as it's much much cheaper than over here and the quality is as good or even better than here...
Hope I could help. Ne hagyja hogy kedves felvtelei tnkremenjenek
