Thanks Richard - a *good* thought - I will.
Given the extraordinary differences in colour balance that I get out of my
Acer, just by using the defaults in Miraphoto vs the defaults in Vuescan, I
won't be spending too much effort judging the colour accuracy on
negatives.. The areas I am mostly interested in, in rough order of
- dynamic range (I have some awkward shadowy Provias & Kchromes to throw at
it, and I am a chronic underexposer..:-)
- overall sharpness
- edge to edge sharpness (I got lots of 'bent' Kchromes that I have no
desire to demount.)
- colour accuracy (mainly on slides)
- freedom from lens defects (flare, etc)
- ease of use and my perception of how the unit 'feels' (ie will it last..?)
- ease of batch scanning
- efficiency of the FARE dust and scratch removal
I'll report back soon..
