Thanks for that Tom.

My concern would be that I would guess turning the scanner on and off
needlessly will somewhat reduce its lifespan, and puts needless load on the
electronics. Not a big issue, just a silly design decision IMO.

Hmm - the test machine was also Win 2000 & 256M, and it did a lot of diskwork -
maybe poorly setup..?

So do you mean that the noise level drops, *relative* to shadow detail? The
scan I got was not at all washed out from overcompensation for the
underexposure, so I (perhaps rashly) assumed that if the exposure was run down
far enough to get rid of the noise, too much shadow detail would go with it..
Certainly when I tried to adjust the final image's gamma (post-scan), that's
exactly what happened.

Look forward to seeing them. :-)
