RE: filmscanners: Supra 400 shadows

Not to add to the weight of this thread but with a Minolta Scan Dual II I
experience the same kinds of 'noise" (just using this term generically -
please, no corrections about whether I'm using the right term) in the dark
areas as others describe when scanning Supra 400. Fortunately, when it's in
most dark areas where detail is not importantly I can blur it out
sufficiently in PS.

I've experienced similar 'speckles' with Supra 400 and Royal
Gold 4000 with my SS4000. Since this is the only scanner I've
ever used I don't know if what I assume to be noise is
something that happens with all scanners or is unique to the SS4000.

I've become quite fond of Provia 100F. It is sharp as a tack and
a joy to scan. Of course it does suffer in the exposure latitude
department. I'm still using negative films but am shifting more
to transparency film based on ease of scanning and the knock
your socks off quality of Provia.
