I really don't follow this logic. Is the IT8 image done with a camera, light, and physical target, i.e. you photograph a standard of some sort? Then it makes sense to me that you could need such a target for each variant of film. If the IT8 by itself represents a standard for the scanner to scan, then the film shouldn't matter, i.e. the manufacturer of the target should compensate for the film. I'll be the first to admit I don't understand film profiling, so don't be afraid to write replies as in "Profiling for Dummies". > -----Original Message----- > From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of > Bill Fernandez > Sent: Saturday, March 16, 2002 7:53 PM > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Cc: email@example.com > Subject: RE: Source for IT8 targets? > > > The dyes in different film families have different spectral > characteristics from each other, and the sensors in a scanner have > different spectral sensitivities from these films, and the sensors in > a human eye have spectral sensitivities that are different than a > scanner's.
