seems like vuescan might be useful, but here are my gripes. maybe
somebody can set me straight....

my hardware is the nikon ls 8000.

I really liked Vuescan for the Epson 2450, but don't find it worth the
effort for the Nikon.

It seems to be very kludgy about helping to identify  a particular
image. It will do preview scans of everything, but that also takes a
very long time.

The Nikon software is much better for the scanner: the Vuescan scanner model
doesn't quite work for the Nikon. Ed Hamrick is very responsive to user
comments, so I considered discussing this with him, but got lazy. (Vuescan
assumes a two-step (preview -> scan) sequence, whereas the Nikon has a
three-step (extremely low-res preview -> mid-res preview -> scan). Since the
mid-res preview operation on the Nikon doesn't scan the whole film holder
area, Vuescan is quite kludgy for this scanner.

>>>>>>>>>>
its only advantage seems to be the way the software is tuned to the
film. I use fuji Reala, and it seemed to produce a much better
preview scan right out of the box. BUT i'm not sure that alone is
worth it. any thoughts?

Last I checked, he didn't have profiles for Fuji films, but I guess people
were kicking him about that and he came through<g>. He's pretty amazing.

I can't speak to how important that is, since I still have a lot to learn
about color...
