It is good enough for most of what I want it for - certainly as I learn about large format and scanning.
    I tested my Kaiser light panel with my NEC puck and Spectrview II software and came up with these statistics for the panel, battery vs AC powered.

Hence my original question about obtaining a provia-specific camera profile. This is a process I am familiar with in other situations: usually a new model digital camera that does not have acceptable Adobe profiles at launch. I have not yet done it with a transparent profile target on a light panel.
    The main problem with scanning slides is getting what you see on a screen. Shooting a color target then scanning that and building a LUT, icc, or input profile will color correct your slide, by definition. It seems you're after absolute color reproduction, not accuracy.

    I have no reliable method of doing that besides color grading by eye.
