[filmscanners] Kodak 400cn



I have just been scanning Kodak 400cn B+W and I am very impressed with the
lack of grain and scan quality on my LS30.

However on some shots I find that the black and white points in VS are
easily set and look fine but the mid tones seem rather muddy ie skin tone.
The histo in VS looks like a mountain with a very high mid level much like
an A shape. Photoshop seems to cope with a 16 bit curves correction - my
question at last is there anything I can do to improve "local mid tone
contast" in Vuescan without having to clip the bw points?

Regards

I always found the whole Portra family easy and great to scan (I'm a Vuescan
user).
VC is just warmer and more saturated than NC. Anyway, what you have in the
neg you  find in the scan: You'll get more shadow/highlights details than in
wet prints, you may as often need to reinforce the midtones contrast by
adjusting curves in PS.
You will love both NC and VC in the digital darkroom too.

Best regards from Paris.
