Re: filmscanners: Vuescan Image vs Slide setting

A small cautionary tale.

It appears Vuescan's 'Slide' setting may result in blown out highlights, at 
least for my Acer (perhaps it is related to the lack of exposure 
control..?).  I would be interested to hear if anyone else has experienced 
the following.

A challenging (!) Ektachrome I scanned this morning was showing burnt out 
highlights in a small area.  I tried adjusting white and black points, 
image brightness and gamma, and could not improve it.  I had just about 
given up and assumed the area was in fact burned out on the slide, or that 
maybe the Acer wasn't resolving it.  But then I tried Miraphoto, and it did 
a better job..  So I went back to Vuescan, and puzzled over what the 
problem was.  I changed the Media Type to IMAGE rather than SLIDE, and sure 
enough, there was my lost data..

Moral - if your highlights are blown, check that setting!

If you're interested, I've posted samples here..
