RE: filmscanners: Canon 4000 ppi film scanner

I would say the truth is somewhere in the middle. Scanning freshly developed
film without ICE and using e.g. tablet (even the cheapest) wil typically
take me just few minutes - frequently less than one. Using appropriate
software (e.g. Pentools/pen duster ->bonus software for Graphire) will
further speed up the process. On the other hand quite sufficient for
prolonging this time to x-time more minutes is to take out and put back the
stripe from plastic cover. Doing this 2-3 times and scratches are already
there. Even leaving it in for few days and only then scaning will complicate
my life (static electricity?). Retouching the scratches along the picture on
a blue gradient sky is sometimes night mare. Not to mention the uneveness in
film emulsion which sometimes occur which is really time consuming to
On the other hand use of ICE will soften somewhat the picture but not in
terms of resolution but in terms of contrast. I made small personal test
scanning the negative with resolution chart. With ICE the visible resolution
was 65 lpmm without it 65 as well - but with lower contrast (Nikon LSIV) and
less apparent grain. This might be sometimes advantage sometimes not.
I think the usefullness of ICE is closely related to the system of work with
films and here everybody has to find his own way.


Tom's statement is completely contrary to my experience. I 've used the
SS4000 for about a year and a half and I don't spend on average 2 minutes
cloning dust spots or scratches. To this point, I wouldn't have used the
infrared channel even if I had it. Regards, Ron Carlson
