RE: filmscanners: Best scanner software

Polacolor insight includes a profile for the scanner. The profile describes
the color characteristics of the scanner, the film (chrome) being scanned is
not relevant.

I take it from your comment that Insight does not have provision for
IT-8 calibration.  Does it at least have provision for using the
profile made with Silverfast?  What I want in a scanner software is
the ability to set endpoints, get essentially the same tone/color
balance as the original (profile comes in here), and high bit output.
I'm another one who prefers doing final edits on high bit files in PS.
