I wrote a guest blog post on my camera-scanning workflow for digitising glass plate negatives on TownsWeb Archiving. This post compared the pros and cons of using a flatbed scanner vs a camera for capture speed, object safety and image quality.

Producing a 3000ppi 'scan' of wet-mounted 10x8" colour negative (the film is photographed in eight parts with a large amount of overlap between each capture and then assembled into one large PSB file) on a Phase One XF IQ3 100 placed over a Elinchrom xenon-tube flash lightbox. A mask is placed over the top of the glass prior to the camera firing to reduce loss of sharpness due to light flaring. This scan was then compared to a 3000ppi scan I previously made on my photo multiplier tube drum scanner.
