    • Hi

      The picture here is one I took on film and had scanned by the processor; I also did a little bit of adjustment in PhotoShop Elements. So the work flow is somewhat different from using a Nex and as I don’t have that camera I’m not sure how I can advise you.

      Looking at the two sample images it could be that they are underexposed? It might be worth switching on the histogram display when you take pictures and use a manual setting to ensure there is an adequate exposure.
