[filmscanners] Re: New price on Flextight Photo in UK



I didn't say edge to edge sharpness is a software issue, but shadow detail
and noise in color negs scans certainly is.  That is the part of the neg
that is the easiest for the hardware to deal with.

That is not so Dave.  Edge to edge sharpness is not a software issue, it is
a film flatness issue in the scaner, and an area where the curving of the
film in the Flextight helps greatly.  Shadow detail, and particularly noise
in teh shadow detail, is not a software issue, it is an issue of how the
scanning light source and hardware create the noise and accentuate grain.
The depth of detail extracted from the shadow areas is not a software issue
(altough software can help) but also to do with the Dmax of the scanner.
Colour and clarity can also be assisted using Vuwscan, but the scanner has
to be able to record them reasonably accurately in the first place.

I am confident that Vuescan will not help to resolve some of these issue,
particularly edge to edge sharpness.  I use Vuescan all the time and will
try and re-do my comparison using it with the SS120 and MSMP.
