This may be what you are thinking of:
"There is no scaling or color correction of the raw CCD data in the scanning
step. Some scanners either always or sometimes convert 10-bit or 12-bit CCD
data to 8 bits before transferring it to VueScan, and then VueScan converts it
back to 10-bit or 12-bit CCD data. This is done using a gamma correction table
(gamma 2.2 with a linear segment as specified by Rec. 709)."

| Do not use VueScan for a 'real' raw scan. Vuescan does something to the CCD
| data (I forgot what exactly, but it is in the help file).
| As for the Nikon device profile: The only place you can use it is in
| Photoshop opening the raw scan and assigning the device profile in the
| profile' dialog. Vuescan uses its own version while scanning, not a
| one. And after the image comes out of Vuescan, you don't want to assign a
| device profile anymore, but rather use a working space profile.
