I use a Nikon 5000 with VueScan.
After scanning, to a RAW DNG, I tag the files with ExifTool.
Then import to Lightroom and manage from there.
I would love to have a darkroom, but alas,
, that is not in the cards for the foreseeable future...
I am quite happy with the results and the DAM. But it was tedious to get this far. Now, the work goes quickly.
