Vlads Test Target

Hi-Res 35 mm targets

USAF 1951 Test targets on high resolution film will help you align and fine-tune your digital camera scanning rig to get the most from your priceless negatives and slides. Classic USAF 1951 charts have been strategically placed in the center, corners and sides of the frames to allow photographer check the focus and alignment reliably and quickly. Those frames shown above are no longer available except on the secondary market, but new design below has all the features from above and some improvements as well. The resolution chart below is applicable to both old and new 35 mm targets. Order here.

Type 120 (roll) Film targets

Siemens stars and USAF 1951 targets placed strategically across the frame will help you put the film holder in the precise position for fast focusing and optimal digital capture. Will work for 6x6, 6x4.5, 6x7, 6x8, 6x9, 6x12 negatives and transparencies. See description below for the new superior offering. Order here.

Targets Resolution Charts

The charts below contain lookup information pertaining the resolution of the images digitally captured from the film targets. As a matter of personal advice I (Vlad) would not recommend putting too much of emphasis on the absolute resolution numbers below. IMHO, the consistency of the captured image across the whole frame is more important for successful camera scanning operation then achieving higher resolution at any given region on your film original. Typically, having 35 mm target resolved at Group 0 Element 2 is the very good result for the decent 24 MP camera and true macro lens.
