Re: filmscanners: Sprintscan/Vuescan/Negs

In Vuescan, try different settings for film type and for Color Balance.

| Hello!
| Brand new member to the list here.  Y'all seem neat & smart and all
| :)
| I'm having a bit of a problem with my SS4000 and Vuescan and negatives
| I'm hoping someone can help with.  I've been on enough lists to know that
| question has probably been asked & answered 100 times, but... :)
| I normally shoot RDPIII and scan with the hardware/software above, and
| been very happy with the combination.  Great color, saturation, contrast,
| etc.
| Yesterday I was experimenting with fill flash (still haven't gotten it
| completely down yet) and decided to go w/neg film for it's extra latitude.
| Kodak Royal Gold 100, to be exact.  A bit contrasty, but I like it.
| The scans coming out of the SS and Vuescan are horrible!  Extremely cyan,
| dark and flat.  I've tried tweaking just about every setting in Vuescan to
| no avail.  I can, for the most part, correct the final scans in Photoshop,
| but am thinking that I'd be better off starting with a scan that was much
| closer to what it's supposed to be.
| Thinking initially that this was a hardware problem (burned out or weak
| lamp), I tried one of my standard RDP trannies and the results were as
| as ever.  This eliminated the hardware issue...
| Is this a common problem?  I can scan negs on the Scan Dual II and the
| dreaded ES-10S and have decent output, but the SS (which is the best
| I've used to date) seems to almost ignore the neg masking.
| Any ideas or <do this, you silly guy> comments?
| TIA!
| Dave
