Converting colour negatives using X-camera

Recommended Posts


I have a lot of 6x7cm C-41 (orange tint) colour negatives to convert to digital format.  I could scan them in a scanner, but I have a copy stand and daylight light box, so I thought I might just photograph them with my XT-30 camera.   But then I have to convert the orange-tinted negative image to a positive with a reasonable white-balance.  It seems hugely complicated in Photoshop/Lightroom/Mac Photos etc, and hardly worth the bother.  Is there a way of adjusting the XT-30 settings to record a direct positive?  Or is there any other SIMPLE solution?  Any help would be deeply appreciated.
