filmscanners: Re: Nikon Super coolscan problem



Anthony

My problem is that, in pursuit of perfection and with a reluctant
willingness to spend big bucks, I try to shoot everything with the best of
Canon lenses, though away any shots that aren't tack-sharp, and use films
live Velvia and Provia 100F.  Consequently, I am able to see the noise
created by ICE.

Useful resolution for handheld photographs in 35mm usually tops out around
40-50
lp/mm, because of camera shake, focusing errors, and the like.  The lens can
have an influence, too, and it doesn't have to be a cheap lens; consistently
good performance above 40 lp/mm is hard to come by, and usually requires a
very
non-cheap lens.  Finally, the film itself may have trouble recording beyond
60
lp/mm or so.

I use ICE only on color negatives, but I don't notice any obvious softening
(on
a LS-2000), and it's much better to have ICE remove the vast number of
scratches
and spots that the lab leaves on the negatives than to spend hours in
Photoshop
doing that myself.
