Re: Multi-Scanning software upgrade

My opinion: There is no need to use Multisampling on a Microtek 120 tf, if you use full optical resolution of 4000 dpi. The difference in scan quality compared to the grain-noise of the film is extremely low. Same with Multi-Exposure, which still doesnt work properly, if i remember right. No need fo...

yes, that would be interesting to know. it looks like, that each holder has a fixed subset of formats supported in hardware. As i remember Microtek's own software "ScanWizard Pro" also does'nt support Panorama or any free format. maybe an image-application using TWAIN-Standard to import sc...

User Interface

As more complex an application becomes, as more attention should be spend to a tidy user-interface. Microsoft did changer their user-interface years ago for their complex development languages from seperated single windows to a linked-style version (see IDE on Visual Studio etc.). Individual setting...

Hi Frank, i have this scanner and holder too, and i would apreciate such a more flexible frame-handling too. At the moment i have no panoramic, because all are in 6x7-format. But who knows? And sometimes frame is out of border and everything must be realigned. Selection 6x4.5, 6x6 or 6x7 would be ob...

Thanks for your answer, Lsi_Muenier! The main-critical point scanning negas is color-reproduction. It would be no problem to adjust brightness, contrast, overal color-temperature and other easy to maintain-parameters further manually. What i want to say is, the film-curves applied in Negafix are not...

Negatives scanned with calibration

New feature wanted: Calibrated Nega-Scan. Using Negafix often leads to unsatisfying results and loss of time. In the days of Digital-Photografy, there should be a save workflow for Negative-Scan. Like Scanning Slides, there should be target(s) for the most Professional Negative-Films for Calibration...

In the case it is a firmware problem, is there a response from the supplier (Microtec) to fix that problem? Do there exist the same problems with the 4000tf? Thank you for opening a perspective.

Yes, but what's up with the certain reproducability on a microtec 120tf? multi-scan works fine, why not multi-exposure? maybe there is still a bug in the firmware of microtec 120tf (i use version 1.8). i don't know. isn't the difference that ME is scan after one complete scan-pass while multi-scan s...

Hi Wanderer, i once or twice used the GANE-Filter successfully on my Silverfast/Microtek-Installation (XP). No problems with black screens here. Maybe try an other Computer with different graphhics-hardware/drivers. I decided not to use GANE because as every filter, some little image-sharpness is lo...

A scan with 48-Bit seems to deliver more shadow-detail as a 16-Bit-Scan, when a customized lightning-curve is applied. don't know why, because adjustments done before conversion to 16-Bit? Will buy Silverfast HDR to make one raw-scan and then play with the parameters. Don't like to scan same image a...

For what reason? ME is a much overpromoted feature in case of microtek scanner 120tf (my view). Will not wait for it. But would check it out also, if available.

Did you recognize any other differences? For example a quality improvement? If not, maybe it does NOT work at all.

I decided NOT to wait for a proper functional ME scanning my slides archive, because honestly I do not expect an image improvement using a microtek 120tf. maybe other scanners take advantage. 120 tf deliveres scans with very low noise and full 3 x 14 bit dynamic, which is more than enough for chrome...

are the results of the scans of Minolta with ME (and/or without) better than scans on Microtec 120tf without ME? would be interesting.

hi bobrapp, did you recognize any quality improvement scanning a 2000dpi image? theoretically: does ME make sense scanning proper exposed chromes? Microtek 120tf is NOT a cheap flatbed scanner... has anybody seen a quality improvement scanning Negatives (other scanners) ? i mean, commercials sais a ...
