Re: filmscanners: Negatives vs. slides in new scanners
There is no question that most negative color films are lower contrast
and have a wider exposure range than their equivalent speed in slide
film. If your scanner/scanner software has good ability to translate
the dye masks in negative films, you will get better results overall
with negative film in high contrast situations. Keep in mind, slides
are designed for projection and need that contrast.
Astia, which is, I assume, the film you are referring to, is a lower
contrast Fuji slide film (lower than the regular Provia, although I am
not sure about the Provia F). However, if you have used Sensia II 100,
then you have used Astia 100, at less cost. The films are identical.
