[filmscanners] RE: Lack of contrast in the (raw) scans from VueScan ?

  Update your version of Vuescan.  Vs versions later than 7.5.14 are very
solid with all Nikons. <http://www.hamrick.com/vsm.html> ...

  Keep in mind Vuescan tends to capture all information available in the
film, and  would therefor naturally yield an image rather flat.  Its default
setting for whitepoint is 1% and for blackpoint zero%.  These settings
assume 1% of the pixels are specular highlights, and then captures all pixel
values.  I happen to believe whitepoint should be less (~0.1%), but I
believe you'll notice a big difference if you set your Bp at some similar
value.
