Re: filmscanners: Color saturation with Vuescan
Agreed on the budget printers. Blown out highlights and no shadow detail.
Still, even comparing my scans to good quality digital cameras like the Nikon
990 leaves me dissapointed when viewing them on screen. My scans are sharper,
which is not surprising given the resolution difference, but again, they just
don't seem to have the color I guess I'm used to, or that people (clients) want
I'm trying to determine if I've missed something, just haven't learned enough
yet, or am expecting too much from the setup I have. It's hard to accept that
an $500 digital camera can give better results when the output is for the web...
