RE: filmscanners: NikonScan 3.1-Silverfast 5.2 - Vuescan

If you  know what you are doing when you are scanning a negative or positive 
film  Silverfast is IMO superior  to all other scanner software on the 
market today..No other software  have all the
features and parameters as Silverfast have   (general color handling, 
specific color handling, white, gray ,and black point. curves , histogram 
and much much more. I can  measure  up the   film in Silverfast and get  
scanning results who are much better in all aspects than a calculating 
software.  It all depends on your own skills  when you are working with 
Silverfast. VueScan is a excellent software but Silverfast is a scanning 
If someone really will learn how to scan a  film my suggestion is use 
Silverfast and VueScan
For easy scan-VueScan. For complex scan-Silverfast.
Its takes many many hours of training to be a good scanner operator but it 
worth it. Its like in the darkroom- the pleasure of knowing what Im doing.
