Re: filmscanners: Silverfast or Polarscan


Initially, I tested out all three software packages with my recently
purchased SS 4000.  The scans I made using Vuescan, after much assistance
from members of this forum, were crisp, sharp, and had colors that were very
close to my slides.  I liked the Silverfast interface, felt it was visually
most attractive and liked the sophistication of its controls.  But, I was
unable to get a crisp, sharp scan.  Not getting that, I didn't pay much
attention to the colors.  On my Mac G4, I used version 5 and also downloaded
and tried the trial version of 5.5.  I faithfully used your tutorial to set
both up.  I found it strange that I couldn't get an acceptable scan.  I very
much would have liked to, and don't understand why I couldn't.  I'd
appreciate any suggestions you have for overcoming the difficulties I
encountered.  Let me know if you need additional information.
