[filmscanners] RE: Scanning B & W

It depends on the scanner, as well as your skill in PS, and your skill with
that particular scanner interface.  You should be able to get better results
by scanning in RGB (since that's what the scanner does anyway) and doing the
conversion your self in PS...and that's where your skill as a scanner
operator vs a PS operator comes into play.  I would suggest trying both and
seeing what YOU find fits the results you are looking for best.

It's a shame that scanner drivers for scanner that scan B&W in RGB don't let
you give it the "mix" proportions...

Regards,

Austin
