Accurate color starts with full-spectrum light. The Light Source Basic has been designed using the latest LED bulbs with 99 CRI, this allows for more accurate and true-to-life colors when capturing E6 or negative film.
A brighter light source allows for higher shutter speeds and sharper images, and additionally allows faster workflows, so you can spend more time taking photos, and less time scanning. The Light Source Basic is up to 2x brighter than competitor options.
Our Light Source Basic slides perfectly under our Film Carrier MK1 or 120 system, or under the Pro Mount MK1 or MK2
95 CRI is sufficient for general film scanning, but for those working heavily with color film, scanning mounted slides/transparencies, or those for whom color/tonal accuracy is an absolute must, our 99 CRI offering is a necessity.
The below graphs from Negative Supply's in-house testing compares our 95 and 99 CRI bulbs. You’ll notice significantly improved performance across the board with our 99 CRI light, with it’s strongest improvements in R4, R9, R10, R11, and R12 channels. Namely blue and red channels are much, much more accurate.
