RE: filmscanners: Nikon Scan & VS Negative dynamic range

It is very simple: NS decides to clip a neg scan if the dynamic range
encoded in the neg is more than a certain amount.  I don't know what this
amount is, but I can demonstrate a very strong difference between NS and
Vuescan in this respect with shots on Supra 400.

No amount of adjustment to NS's master or R, G, B light output levels solves
this problem - you can tweak the output levels to choose which you'd rather
lose (shadows or highlights) but you cannot get the full range of such a neg
with NS.

Maybe older versions are different.  I write this with respect to NS3.0 and
3.1 working with my LS40.

(Hoping I haven't grabbed the wrong end of the stick.)
