Not able to batch scan with LS5000 & SF200

I have a Nikon LS5000 slide scanner and a Nikon SF-200 batch adapter. Can I use the SF-200 with the LS5000? I want to be able to do batch scans with the SF-200 attached to the LS5000 but at the moment don’t know how. I seem to only be able to do single scans. I have used the Batch Scan in Silverfast...

Re: Optical, Nominal, Interpolated Resolution

If I wish to scan 35mm slides in SF8 Ai Studio to HDR scans at the maximum quality possible of my scanner (Nikon LS5000), should I be moving the slider below the Resolution Bar so it sits underneath the yellow/nominal section rather than the green?

Optical resolution setting for maximum scan quality scan

Silverfast 8 comes with a new Resolution Bar with slider, something which was not present in SF6. From left to right the bar has a green, yellow and then red coloured sections. If I wish to get HDR scans of the highest optical quality my scanner (Nikon LS5000 which scans at 4,000 dpi) is capable of ...

Re: IT8 calibration for SilverFast HDR

Thanks for getting back. So if HDR does not need IT8 calibration, what then is used as a profile under INPUT within the the CMS preferences? In Ai Studio I used either if the two the IT8 profiles I generated for 35mm transparency scans specific to Fuji Velvia or Kodachrome. But what do I put here if...

IT8 calibration fro Silverfast 8

What are the exact steps and settings to create an IT8 digital target in Silverfast 8? I assume one would have to scan a transparency target but what are the scan settings for this to ensure the digital target is accurate?

Error opening file for writing

With the latest version of Silverfast, I get the error message "error opening file for writing" when the installation reaches

c:\windows\system32\NKScanUSD.dll

Any suggestions? At the moment I just ignore it and Silverfast seems to work.

Thanks, Eric Lawrie

IT8 icon remains grey - won't turn blue

I have installed the latest updates 6.5.0r.8a for both Silverfast Ai and HDR 6.5. I note that IT8 callibration has now become a pain (the grid is inverted and if I change the orientation of the scanned file of my IT8 profile the grid orientation changes too, damm it!). I can manage but how frustrati...

HDR freezes

My HDR version of Silverfast freezes when I import a 48 bit scanned image in HDR format made using Silverfast Ai. It usually freezes with the image open and none of the tools bars responding. This does not happen with non HDR format images also scanned in Silverfast Ai. What am I going wrong? Is it ...

Q Factor - what is the correct setting?

I have always used a Q factor of 1 for all my slide scans. I now note that the rollover message in the latest version of Silverfast is "Normal Q factor 1.5". On page 38 of "Silverfast - The Official Guide" it states "Leave this set to the default factor of 1.0" and then on page 55 "I tend to side wi...

Thanks for the reply. Yes you are right about the serialisation number (and the job manager icon). I have tried to deinstall HDR via Control Panel as well as to manually delete the HDR directory. However, I do not seem to be able to get rid of the old serial number. Grateful for your continued advic...
