[filmscanners] Re: SS 120 questions



Jim

Thanks for your reply.  On the film flatness issue, I do not think it is
flatness as I can do five scans without touching the film and two will be
pin sharp and three will be soft.  If it was bowing of the film I would
expect them to all show the same sharpness or flatness.  Guess I might have
a unit with a defective focus mechanism.

Another question.  I presume the circle with the cross inside that
Silverfast displays in the middle of the prescan image is showing where the
focus was taken.  Is there any way to adjust or move this to a different
area on the film?  It does move when you re-crop the pre-scanned image but
it would be great to choose a focus areas, much like Vuescan permits with my
LS 30.

Thaks.
