I just got a brand new scanner. A Plustek OpticPro UT24. Has a Transparency Media Adaptor (TMA). I used it for old color photos and restored them to their former glory with the help of Stephanie's PhotoImpact Tutorials.
I tried the TMA on film negatives. Alas, it was a futile exercise as mentioned at Wayne Fulton's Scantips.
The dynamic range of the scanner is not good enough. But there is some nagging thing I found out. There are these weird purple lines running across the scanned film image. What are these?
Another question I have. I heard Vuescan is great so I downloaded it. Any Plustek owner got it to work with a Plustek scanner? My system hangs when I start the preview scan.
I like to hear from other scanner users too on what is possible and what is not.
