filmscanners: Linux version of Vuescan



Hi!

I have used Vuescan for about 18 months now, with a Minolta Dimage Scan Multi 
scanner. Ed Hamrick developed the drivers for this scanner by having me 
testing all changes he made, so I feel quite involved in Vuescan.

I have essentially doing all my stuff at home with Linux for six years now.

Regarding photography i use mostly Pentax 6x7 and Velvia, and never negative 
film.

My experience with Vuesan is a very pleasant one. It gives better colors than 
the original Minolta driver, and it is quite stable. It may have a few 
quirks, especially with my scanner which handles o lot of different formats.

I have a friend who has a IMac, and I tried to use Vuescan on his computer, 
but it was unfortunately not very stable (in the version that was available 
at that time). With the Linux version I had very little problems.

Best regards

Erik Kaffehr
