Re: filmscanners: fogged film
Though I have barely used NikonScan and know nothing of the HP scanner
software, I think that Vuescan will obtain the maximum information available
from the admittedly foggy and dense film - it's design will do that. You
may have to adjust the gamma and brightness settings to do so, or even by
adjusting the black point setting (after unchecking the "Auto black point"
box on the Color tab).

Subject: filmscanners: fogged film
Apparently two rolls of color print film were either fogged by an xray
machine or poorly developed.
The entire roll film is very dense but there are images there.
Using a Nikon 2000 scanner or a HP Photo smart scanner and nikon and vuescan
software, what would be the best place to start to extract the images from
The images were shot underwater documenting coral diseases. I am not so
concerned about quality as the ability to see diseased coral. It is just too
hard to go reshoot.
Help - please
