Re: filmscanners: scanning automation
That's exactly how I use the Nikon LS-4000 with NikonScan 3.1 and the roll
film adapter. I scan everything at 2000dpi with ice and minimal cropping.
I have very little retouching to do. On my best shots I rescan at 4000dpi
and perfect in Photoshop. You can also preview a whole roll and make
individual adjustments on each image then walk away and let it scan. The
Nikon LS-4000 with the roll film adapter is a bit costy.....but so is my
time. I love it!
