Provia, and Sensia of course, perform excellent on this scanner.
So does also Agfa slide material CT and RXS, by the way. I used
Provia 100 and 400, Sensia 100 and 200. I have observed though
massive grain/noise/texture (you name it) problem on all Ektachromes
and Elitechromes including 100 ISO films, what was a nasty surprise
to me. Especially the E200Pro scans are not usable without applying
GEM. Vuescan was helpless in dealing with this material. I am happy
about the recently here recommended trick of making a "raw file" using
NikonScan+ICE+GEM and applying Vuescan to obtain the final scan.
Fast and good.
