View Full Version : Box Brownie

07-03-2011, 8:11pm
Finally finished the roll of HP5 400 plus in the old box brownie.
Developed it last night, first time I have film developed in maybe.. 30yrs.

All went well with ilfosol 3, stop bath and ilford rapid fixer..+ wash.
The negatives look ok on the film but I havn't had my 'eye in' for a long time now.

only got 5 1/2 photos out of an 8 photo roll. I will have to check my respooling onto the 620 spindles next time.

My software for my cannon 8400F flat bed scanner doesn't seem to load onto windows 7.

Please help!:eek:

Can anyone suggest a free or otherwise software which is good for copying negatives and slides???

my old software was great and i may look to the same company if needed.

Hey robz, that's no good.
Start by looking here (http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_8400f#DriversAndSoftware), and then there's this place (http://canon.driversdown.com/Canon-driver-list/s_426_1.shtml)
The 1st one has Win 7 64-bit listed in the drop menu.
If you're running 32 bit and can't find one you may have to try a 32-bit Vista driver (though, shudder!!).
Have you tried telling the prog to run in (presumably) Win XP mode?
PS: I don't think a "free" software package would work because it would need the appropriate TWAIN driver - ie, for Win 7.
