[filmscanners] Re: Black and white scans on LS4000 ED and otherissues



I had a similar problem with a negative recently. My Minolta Scan Elite
showed what appeared to be far off birds in a harbour shot. A closer look
revealed it was spots and a close inspection of the negative revealed some
kind of contamination. ICE doesn't remove defects such as these as I
discovered.
