Dust Removal With Hewlett Packard S20

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by Larry R Harrison Jr, Sep 3, 2003.

  1. Yes I realize it's a budget-priced 2400 dpi scanner. Would've loved to have
    gotten the 2800 dpi Minolta DImage Scan III--or heck, a Nikon Coolscan IV
    etc--but as a start, I went with this.

    Anyway, I'm well aware that it doesn't come with dust/scratch removal
    software like the Minolta DImage Scan III or others (like Nikon's) do. That
    said, what software downloads or purchases etc would be suitable for a
    "quick fix" sort of dust/scratch removal?

  2. Remember that dust "in the scanner" shows up as multicolored bands, or
    stripes in the S-20. Like LRH I've forgotten the name of the free
    apps out there, but there are several.

    I've used one (I have one) and it gets surprisingly good results at
    2400 dpi. Unfortunately that system was struck by lightening and it
    even shattered one of the prisms in the S-20. It still works on film
    strips and slides though. It just won't do prints any more.
