Yesterday I scanned a neg in NikonScan neg mode with as much of the factory default settings as possible. An analogue gain of 0.5 added, 2 x sampling, 14 bit. With the same settings I've used Dane's NikonScan positive>negative method, the middle of the three described. What is interesting is the chroma difference between the two, Dane's is far less clipped. Quite obvious in the NikonScan tool menu. The colours are more saturated in the image. The NikonScan looks like it has a veil of gray over it when compared to the other. A bit more red is needed in Dane's image, it was taken near the end of the day. In that aspect NikonScan neg scanning is better. There's a risk that the strong colours go neon like, something that has been observed in transparency scanning before with those scanners. But bringing back saturation goes better than increasing it. Ernst - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
