Don't mix up scene brightness range with dye density range. Negs represent
the former as a very compressed ODR, and I've had no difficulty scanning
C41 negs which had a 14 stop range in the original scene. Though always
they will look flat and horrible unless I combine one set of adjustments
for shadows and midtones with another for highlights.
