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.
