Re: filmscanners: Nikonscan and dual processors
NikonScan's GUI is amazingly simple, especially for full roll scanning. It
gives a full roll prescan of thumbnails which allows you to select and
rotate frames you want to scan. It's much less hassle than manually typing
in Vuescan frame numbers, frame offset, orientations, etc....all of which
need to be done while viewing your full roll of film on a lightbox!?!. Not
all that practical.
I'm a registered user of Vuescan, but I use NikonScan 3.1. Even if I deduct
the crash and recovery time of NikonScan 3.1, it is faster and more hassle
free to use than Vuescan.
