Period. Sounds like Jerry Olson from the old days <g>.. What Iittle I've seen of the Piezo system (and it was a while back) seemed to indicate that deep blacks were a bit of an issue. But that's on the paper/ ink side... can't blame the scanner or the image file for that one. Anyway, you can always remap tones, right? The degree of damage done in that step depends on how radical the remapping. In the case of the problem at hand (the LS-8000's or SS-120' slightly compressed histograms) I'd say that the damage is inconsequential. We're only de-compressing the range by 10%. What's the big deal? Particularly if you work in 16-bit space, you'll never see the effect. rafe b. - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
