Re: filmscanners: Color Calibration
This accords with my procedure, which follows Dan Margulis's method:
Find the highlight, shadow and midtone gray - the numbers should show
neutral or should be corrected to result in a neutral black/gray/white - M=Y
and C a shade higher. All other colors should essentially fall into place
absent unusual circumstances, even without a gray card.
