Firstly, the question of Vuescan and the Minolta Multi
Pro. I, and others, have found that in practical terms
Vuescan does not work with the MSMP and firewire under
W2k. But apparently it works well with SCSI
Secondly, the MSMP native software seems to do a
pretty good job with colour negative film, although
you might have to fiddle a little with curves. Vuescan
is supossed to do a good job, too.
