Hi, Al,

having gone through the same trouble with two defective Elite II units
and now using the LS-40, I can only state that I have yet to meet a
slide with shadows the LS-40 cannon penetrate. Using Vuescan, I always,
literally always get a histogram that provides me with some "space" at
both ends, meaning neither highlights nor shadows will lose significant
detail (JFTP, I use Fuji Superia 100 for negs and Kodak Elitechrome 100
for slides).

If you like, send me a dense slide to scan, and I'll send it back with
the scan (raw or processed). E-mail me directly for mailing address
