Re: Sprintscan 120 issues/findings (comments welcomed)



The FlexColor software has exposure controls such as gamma, shadow,
brightness, contrast etc., but I was frustrated at needing to use these when
the SS120 found the shadow detail.  I have seen black get lost in scans
before where values have not been picked up but never a range of values all
compressed to black.
