Re: filmscanners: Dust in Sprintscan 4000?
I never got along with Insight software, and I bought mine way before Silverfast
was included ;-(
But, after initial confusion, I found Vuescan the best for Tmax 100. I find I
to just pass the high bit image on through to Pshop. In fact, I wouldn't have
bought the SS 4000 if Vuescan didn't exist.
$$...Not only is the SS 4000 half price now, I had trouble with a previous
scanner...way back in 1995 a refurbed Nikon LS-3510AF went for $3800. I could
probably sell it for $300 now if I was lucky- but it's image quality is no where
near the SS 4000. And Nikon never fixed a serious bug in the (Win) software they
kept promising to do.
