I find that somewhat more than interesting. If Nikonscan has no profiles, how 
does it know where the startpoint is? This isn't meant to be disrespectful--I'm 
truly curious. It might answer some perplexing questions I've had for some 
time, now. 

Photoshop also has no film profiles, and also does a good job of inverting a 
negative image. Is it White Point, Balance, or what?
