Nikon Scan 3: shadow detail query

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Stephen Edgar, Jul 6, 2003.

  1. Hi Folks,
    I'm in the processing of scanning a lot of old black and white
    negatives using a Nikon Coolscan 4 and Nikon Scan 3.1 software. The
    files are then brought into Photoshop 7 for post processing. I've
    begun to notice that all the images sem 'underexposed', when viewed
    using the histogram dispay in the Curves Tab in Nikonscan. Photoshop
    also confirms this lack of shadow values on scanning. It seems that
    every images requires its black point to be adjusted in Photoshop.
    I seem to remember a previous thread mentioning the fact that
    Nikonscan had a 'faulty' histogram display?
    I'd appreciate any help or advice. Incidenatlly, the negatives are not
    underexposed!

    Thanks in advance
    Stephen
