    I use Wet scanning on Epson 850 with Silverfast and keep every setting off.
    The result is a images still like the original film, then in Lightroom I concert with Negative Lab Pro 2.0, also there with all options as low as possible with one exception the choice of film. As my color choice of film is Kodak Ektar i choose there Kodak.
    Export to TIFF and make the final adaptions in photoshop.

    So more like your workflow.

    Nice. I wet scan as well.

    This from Ed Hamrick

    "The raw tiff files come directly from the raw scanner data - no conversion
    of any kind is done."

    I did play with converting in Photoshop using curves by inverting each color channel. Works fairly well but still have to compensate for the orange mask to get rid of cyan cast completely.

    I read where you could scan an unexposed piece of film after developing to use in Photoshop by combing with image by using the difference blend option for layers. Have to try that.

    I scan, then on Photoshop ditch the red and blue channels, put green channel to 100% then gray-scale. Save as tiff. Green channel has a very slight edge in sharpness.

    Good choice for black and white. How about color negatives?

    I also use Vuescan & ColorPerfect. I spot in PS, then use Lightroom for final tweaks.
