Seeking Sharpness on a 15-year-old Flatbed Scanner – By Nathan Bobinchak

“I would like to buy you a new film scanner for your birthday,” my wife says concernedly from the couch. I am crouched over my 15-year-old Epson flatbed, a $10 purchase from Goodwill, a machine that I bought without thinking and that frustrates me to no end. I have been wrestling with it for hours, trying to get a sharp scan, and my wife is concerned for my sanity.
