Re: filmscanners: RE: filmscanners: Nikon Scan & VS Negative dynamic rang e

Thanks guys - I knew this!

Actually I think I did - even had the terms right - but from memory 
couldn't get it to work as I expected (I am talking maybe 6 months ago) so 
decided I just didn't understand it at all.  Maybe it is the problem you 
(Rob) mention here, or maybe my finger trouble.

I do try with Vuescan every now and again, and it does (as I said) give me 
some good results - sometimes.

I tried it with colour restoration the other day and it wasn't half bad 
considering it doesn't work at a film level as I read ROC does.  I was 
quite impressed and even though it required a bit of PS work after, it was 
much better than my skills could have managed with PS alone.  I might post 
this example on my website because the slide was quite badly faded and 
purple (Agfa 40 years old) but came up at least with reasonable colour, 
even if grainy.
