[filmscanners] Re: vuescan



Software tuned to film seems worth $40 to me.  I use Vuescan regularly with
the Nikon LS-30.  It's preview is admittedly not as accurate and the
interface perhaps not as convenient as Nikons, but it's main advantage is
that it will pick up all the highlight and shadow details and not clip them,
and the image can then be adjusted in PS or other graphic software in which
one can see the image much better.

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 tried the tryout version...which seems useless for critical
comparisons, because of the "$40" on the final image. that's my first
gripe. it may be cheap, but I don't want to spend any $$ unless it will
improve my result.

second, it seems to take a very long time to scan, render and save,
compared to the nikon scan software.

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.

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?
