        When I used a Canon FS2710 I always tried to get the colour 
reasonably close using curves (not always possible, particularly with 
negatives). I also used curves to made some adjustments to the 
lightness, making sure the highlights were not blown out. I then 
scanned using the 12-bit setting, did the fine tuning in Photoshop, 
and reduced to 8-bit for printing, etc.
        More recently I have been using VueScan, which usually (but 
not always!) gives a much more accurate scan right out of the box, so 
very little Photoshop tweaking is required.
