[filmscanners] Advice on scanner settings


I about to begin scanning a lifetime of slides (mostly Ektachrome but
a smattering of Kodachrome) using a Nikon LS-5000 and Vuescan.

Are the following settings appropriate?  Why or why not?

I'm planning on 4000 dpi for maximum resolution, with 3 samples and
the color analog gain set at 1 for all colors.

I'm also planning a light infrared screen with no other filtering
with respect to colors, grain reduction, or sharpness.

I'm planning to auto balance colors using the default options and
appropriate slide types.

With respect to output, I gather that TIFF is better than JPEG,
because JPEG is compressed.  Is that right?

Thanks for your input,


--who figures he'll start scanning now, then figure out how to
manipulate scanned images later.
