RE: filmscanners: SilverFast HDR
HDR is a plugin also. HDR is primarily a workflow enhancer. It allows you to
do 48 bit raw scans in AI, save them and process them later without being
attached to the scanner. This also allows a unskilled operator to do the raw
scan and a person with a higher skill level to do the final editing. I think
HDR also works on files from other digital devices such as cameras.
There is an industrial strength version of HDR than can quickly edit
hundreds of images at a time. Good for people who are archiving.

Subject: filmscanners: SilverFast HDR
Lasersoft produce a HDR version of their SilverFast software. This is
supposed to enable saving on disc the 48bit raw data from the scanner.
How useful is this function. Can't figure out if it's better to have normal
SilverFast sotfware or the HDR version.
I consider buying Agfa Arcus 1200 (flatbed) and there's no SilverFast for
But since the HDR version is not Twain related, it can be used with every
scanner, hence my question.
Another issue is the cost of a separately bought scanning software.
