Nikon LS-4000ED with VueScan, NikonScan and the source of the images
is Kodak Supra 400.

hm. velly velly intelesting. :-)

Same frame of film produces the same bizarre colours with each
software. This isn't the first time I've had difficulties with dark
shades of brown and scanning. But I've also noticed this on some
types of digi-cameras too and always with dark brown colours.

wonder how i'd go about fixing it?
