    Different versions of Slide scanned on Howtek

    Here are 4 different versions. Main difference from previous ones is that this version was scanned using a custom CMS file. Tells the scanner how to scan the film vs software manipulation after scan. Lots of possibilities with this. First two are moodier while the second two are closer to the slide viewed on light table.

    This one was scanned using the preset Fuji RDPIII CMS file. Only other difference was the above were scanned with Aperture 6, while the one below was scanned with Aperture 13.


    Still a ways to go learning the scanner, but it is straight forward and holds some possibilities that the Epson does not. Working on my color interpretation (always the hardest) especially avoiding over doing it with Grand Canyon images.

    One nice feature about DPL 8 is the Aperture check feature. You select an area and will automatically scan it multiple times using different apertures. Makes it rather easy to figure out which one to use on each film type. On my HR8000 the default go to is 16.

    I agree color is always subjective and most difficult, variations are useful to impose with artistic intent

    I prefer the sharpened images as the river is better defined and the most influential artifact IRL

    I'd like to see a cell phone shot of the slide on the table. For comparison.

    Here's how the bw negative was scanned for me.

    The scan was done at 4000 ppi using the native aperture (6.35 microns) for that resolution. It’s 16 bit RGB directly into Gamma 2.2 Adobe RGB color space. Note the adjusted version was changed only to set the clipping points using Trident. I did not sharpen either of the Howtek furnished files.
