Only if they scanner firmware allows you to change them, and what scanner
specifically, allows that?

What do you mean by "but irreversable...still occur"?

Austin

-----------------
Calibration settings is the wrong term.  What I meant is the software
interface leads one to think there is enough control over tone range that
clipping and compressions that can't be reversed are avoidable, and is
really not a hardware issue at all AFAIK.  That is not the case IME,
excepting Vuescan, of the scan drivers I've used, which includes NikonScan,
Polaroid Insight, and Agfa FotoLook, when scanning color negs.
