VEry simple, actually. Not changing the variables is exactly the idea behind multi-sampling. The noise is random, so it changes all the times, meaning that two otherwizes identical reading would be different only by the noise, making it easier to identify what is noise and what is not noise.

Thanks

Thanks all for great help! I have installed 1.7. The scanner seems faster now. I am not sure the 3 colour channels are ientical yet but at least the scanner is now usable :)

Thank you so much!

I am really curious to witness the colour registration problem being solved. If it is the case maybe my 4990 will be used only for contact sheets, as I originaly intended.

Thank you so much. There are windows machines at the office, I'll try to update the scanner with that. I'll give it another chance and see how it works.

Exactly my experience. I had seen it before but did not install it since I had bad memories of numerous problems after installing 1.6. Now that we have the information that it allows better reseults, it is impossible to find. This goes along with the tradition of non predictability with Microtek. At...

Thank you, but I already have a Microtek ArtixScan 120tf. The thread you are refering is about transforming a Polaro?d into a Microtek.

Channel selection for B&W

It would be great to be able to tell Silverfast which colour channel to use for B&W scanning. It is possible for preview, but not for the actual scan.

On my Epson 4990, the green channel is much sharper than the other two, so this would result in sharper scans.

Co-existence

It might be worthwhile to know that I successfully use both a Microtek 120tf and an Epson 4990 on my firewire bus with SilverFast. As an aside, the Epson results are, after sharpening and for enlargements up to 8 times, surprisingly close. For enlargements up to 5 times, there is no visible differen...

Hi Well, most of your problems are related to scanning in general, not particularly to your scanner or Silverfast. Regarding spacing and exact locations of frames on a film strip with Silverfast, what I do is that I select a scan size larger than the actual frames and make a selection in the preview...

Well, I don't give up anymore. I have recently received an email from LaserSoft support saying they have corrected some issues. I'll try when I return from my current trip.

Scanwizard 7.1.5 allos it. That version has also corrected all the problems I was having with the others. When I'll be back home, I'll try the latest Silverfast release to see what the status is.

Frames offsets

The only problem is that Silverfast does not memorize the frame offsets properly. I reported that problem, what, 2 months ago to support? Never had an answer.

Where to get it ?

Hi, I read your message with great interest. I'd like to try if the Polaroid software works with the Microtek 120tf. Maybe insight Pro is identical to Microtek's ScanWizard Pro ? Problem is, I went to the polaroid software download site and tried to download Insight Pro 5.6 for Mac OS X, but I get "...
