[filmscanners] Re: Nikon's GEM vs. ASF



Jeffrey, this is exactly the questioned that has been rasied in my head
yesterday once I heard from Ramesh about availability of GEM from ASF
as a PS plugin.
I own LS-40 (IV ED) that comes with ICE, GEM and ROC, just like the
4000ED and 8000ED and generally quite satisfied by GEM's performance,
except of little grief about certain snarpness impact if GEM is
applied, especially on maxium setting (and the best grain reduction
results achieved on this setting).
I worked out my approach to apply GEM and 3 or 4 on negatives of
portraiture being very pleased with the smoothness of sckin appearance
it produces. On portrait, extreme sharpness if often less then mosr
desirable, so some little impact is not what would bothered me too much
vs the terrific appearance it produces, but I would think twice about
applying GEM on frames where every edge is improtant (such as
landscapes and especialy architecture).
I liked the approach Ramesh suggested scanning and archiving "un-GEMed"
images and being able to apply GEM any time further by the plugin.
I plan to download the pluging and compare its performance with GEM
built-in into NikonScan and vs. NeatImage, though that may take some
time...

Will report as soon as will have results.
