Re: filmscanners: negative and skin tones

shot of a black/18%gray/white card under the same light conditions your
subject and set your points to that....

Absolutely, 100-per-cent!!!  Anything else is "color memory," on the part of
the operator. This is the "Art Director" in me talkin': I only met one
person in 40-years who had a flawless color memory; there are others, I'm
sure, but he was the only guy I could verify was right every time.

In my particular case, adding the color card is a little like chasing the
horses after leaving the doors open, but for others it's an inexpensive and
useful precaution. Do it! :-)
