    No correction, manipulation or otherwise in photoshop, this is a full frame scan from the original slide.

    This one was scanned using my humble HP 5100 film scanner which is the old version of the S20.

    What!? How come I am unable to get such results from the 5100 I have on loan? What are your secrets? I tend to get rather dull colours.

    It's not just the scanner CK, it's also monitor calibration and film selection, exposure and so on.

    As for secrets, well I do have some and they are exactly that, secrets, after all my livelyhood depends on them

    I tried Velvia, Provia, E100VS and they all turned out pretty dull. Scans done on other scanners like the Acer 2740 looked better in terms of colour.

    Oh well, guess you won't tell me.

    Haha, I'll give you a couple of clues,

    1) Shoot slide at -1/3 stop compensation

    2) Use E100S, Sensia or Astia, forget that over saturated crap like Velvia.

    3) If using Vuescan then be prepared to use Autolevels and curves to tweek the colours to match the chrome. Otherwise use the HP twain driver to scan directly in to photoshop

    4) Above all warm the scanner up with half a dozen scans to bring the tube to operating temperature.

    After that it's Ian's propretary secrets

    Thanks! I'll give it another go. Was using VueScan earlier, as opposed to the TWAIN driver.

    Hehe read the Vuescan manual and you'll find that Vuescan is designed to be used with an editor for colour adjustments. By it's nature Vuescan is set to scan 'under' to capture shadow detail.
