Well that explains at least one thing to me already. I've tried six
different Kodachrome slides so far on the LS-4000 both on Vuescan and on
NikonScan. In all cases Vuescan removed more defects than NikonScan did. NS
added halos around deep shadow areas and other artifacts where there were
none to be seen on the film. Vuescan added neither artifacts or noise. Now
I'm curious about Silverfast's implementation of ICE too.
