Re: filmscanners: Stellar ghosts and Nikon Coolscan IVED (LS40)

I am not sure if you picked up this post by Ed.  I agree that it sounds 
very like an exposure problem.  As well as Ed's suggested Vuescan solution 
you could try Nikonscan / Extras / Autoexposure / Lowcontrast low key (or 
lowcontrast neutral)

I hope you can sort this otherwise it seems to be a serious deficiency in 
what one hopes is a great scanner.
