Re: filmscanners: Vuescan + Infrared
This is very interesting information. Does Canon's software work
consistently in dust removal, or do they have the same problem? It does
make some sense that the IR channel be refocused, since we know that IR
light has a different focal point than does visible white light, and
this is often indicated by the little red line or dot on camera lenses
to show the offset from white light focus, for those using IR film.
I have heard reports of FARE (Canon's IR dust removal system being
either very good and causing no softening of the image, to "not as
effective" as dICE. Perhaps this explains it in part, that being, some
scans work well, others are less effective in registering properly.
