Re: sharpness

Perhaps your TIFFs actually are better since losing information, read losing shades of gray in your case due to compression, may result in pictures looking sharper. The extreme case would be a pure B&W scan which would certainly look very sharp. Else what I can think of is that your negatives si...

FYI: Nikon Scan for MS Vista is available

So to whom it may concern and despite myself wanting to stick to XP as long as possible - Nikon Scan for the 32 bit version of Windows Vista can now be downloaded from Nikon support sites. Since SF does make use of the Nikon drivers it may help to sort out any issues. Having got a LS9000 I did not c...

Some questions

You calibrate your scanner before scanning (my 750V came with targets and software for calibration but it may be different for the 700 / outside Germany)? You've got some sort of daylight lamp as otherwise what you see on the screen just may seem different to what the original looks like. Have you y...

Well regarding ME

Well actually you may get better results from scanning B&W negatives as colour positives and than, perhaps after playing with the colour channels, converting it to grayscale. For ME -- with some scanners you can set the brightness of the lamps o. LED lines manually and so basically do what ME do...

Hello again

Well glad to hear Vista works for you for Nikon, as much as I'm a Nikon fan, is unfortunately one of the examples where one can run into problems with their SW and Vista big time and you may understand my reluctance regarding Vista given I've got a nice LS9000ED I'd hate to ditch (not to mention som...

Vista? Uh-oh ...

Anyway. Well firstly you'd take a look here: http://www.silverfast.com/forum/canon-flatbed-scanner-f36.html. It may answer some questions and since SF, under the hood, makes use of vendor supplied drivers and libraries Vista could become an issue. Not using it myself and planning not to touch it wit...

Regarding your quest

2) MultiSampling helps to reduce the CCD noise and increases the quality of the resulting scans in my experience. The downside is that it also means the scanner needs to do multiple passes, say more wear and it takes longer, true. 3) You can adjust the gap between the film holder and the glass betwe...

Epson V700 ...

Hello, firstly when scanning B&W negatives do not use ICE. It simply does not work with traditional B&W film as the silver in the film which is still there blocks the IR used for ICE. Secondly, and here it depends on which version you've got, you may give MultiExposure a./o. multisampling a ...

... you'll have to pay up. Sort of the same situation here - I've got an Epson Perfection V750 and a Nikon 9000ED but I've got SF HDR and Photoshop also and you may want to think over carefully what you really need and where functionalities overlap.

Go ahead 8-)

Hello, well regarding your question -- I dare say it is not unusual to do it like you intend it to do and no, your scanner does not scan in a different way. What SF does, unless you create SF HDRs and use SF HDR, is to colour correct your scans (commonly Adobe:1998), that is all. Being able to make ...

Perhaps this helps: http://www.silverfast.com/forum/it8-calibration-confirmation-of-correct-selection-t464.html Of yourse you need to look whether LaserSoft still has the IT8 file available on their server(s). Oh and note 6 years is a bit old so you may not have good results due to an aged target, b...

WHICH VERSION ... PARDON ... so which version have you got?

Hello, the thing is for your scanner there are two AIs available, namely SilverFast Ai and SilverFast Ai IT8 as you can see here: https://www.silverfast.com/order Say if you haven't got Ai IT8, which naturally comes with targets, you cannot calibrate your scanner using SF. It varies BTW and while I'...

Orientation problem

Hello, yes, I've got the same problem since the last or so version but since I've got SF HDR, too I take the easy way out. In short AFAICT you've two options -- scan all as portrait and rotate manually with some application or with SF HDR and, of course, do not overwrite the originals straight away....

It came along with MonacoEZcolor?

As if yes you can (sorry Lasersoft) calibrate your scanner already. Having got a filmscanner I calibrate with a target provided by LS, too I can assure you both works fine in combination with SF. Of course though targets age and when getting a replacement it's the easiest to get one that works with ...
