[filmscanners] Re: Scanning Questions

The third is the Pie-in-the-Sky Bridge :-)

Re the dark previews on the slides - once you open them in Photoshop, change to 
LAB color space, and then adjust in Levels - move the midpoint (gamma) slider 
left - that often opens up the details.

I have no experience with the Eastman, though, and I haven't even had time to 
try out Vuescan 7.5

Would you consider breaking up the set? I only have two San Francisco
models (GG and BB). What's your third?
After all the hard drive, digital camera, and printer posts, I've got a
couple of what may be OT Scanning questions:

I have a number of old (1980's) Kodachrome slides to scan on my Minolta
Dimage Scan Dual II. With both the Minolta software and Vuescan, they
come out very dark on the previews. On a typical slide, in Vuescan I
have to set the brightness to something like 1.6 to get any kind of
decent tonal range. (WP=0, BP=0) In Photoshop, it's difficult to get
levels/curves adjusted to get a good image. Is this the nature of
Kodachrome, or is there something else I can do?
