Are you sure you are setting the black point correctly? Virtually all
scanners degrade to green/blue mush at the dark end, but the more
competent ones do so at luminance values which are below those found in
the shadows. If so, you will be able to clip the black point to lose the
noise, yet not retain all or most of the image shadow detail.
