Hi Jorge,

That's about what it takes here, with FARE on medium.  I'm running it
through USB, though, which slows things a bit.

Color correction _is_ pretty good in FilmGetFS, but it worries me.  I
suspect it's doing more than just color correction when it post
processes the image data. In fact, since I switched from 1.01 to 1.03,
it seems like the stupid beast is applying some sort of sharpening (or
something) that I can't figure out how to disable.

With the resolution at 2000, I agree completely.  With it at 4000, I
generally have to do a little mucking about in Photoshop to reduce the
"graininess" (seems like color aliasing since it happens in both high
and low density regions).

I _gotta_ get a printer that will do more than that letter/A4 ... :-(

The couple of times I tested VueScan, I got terrible colors ... almost
sepia toned ... no matter what I did with color profiles.  (The rest of
my system is reasonably well color-calibrated.)

Please let us know how it does, especially with FARE.
