ColorPerfect Test V

Nikon F4 with Fuji Pro 160S negative film. This film is difficult to scan and make a good positive of. I've had some terrific results from it with the Coolscan 9000 ED but it has been very challenging with my Konica Minolta Scan Dual IV. In fact, I had pretty much given up on this roll as I couldn't get any presentable results.

 

This series is just a selection of images from less than half of that roll where I ran my scan tiffs through a great plugin called ColorNeg (or, now, ColorPerfect). I don't have Photoshop so I used a shareware image editor called Photoline purely to use the plugin.

 

Even though the tiffs I fed in were my existing tiffs (not the linear scans that are the preferred input) I am very pleased that I have so many presentable pictures out of just this few frames.

 

This was blasted through in haste as a proof of concept and I have done none of my normal defect removal.

 

This image is actually a close crop. Probably about 1/5 of the total area of the whole picture.
