AuthorSubject: Settings for Nikon Coolscan LS 4000 ED   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Edward McCain
Posted on Fri Dec 5, 2003 6:39 PM I'm scanning color transparency film with a Nikon Coolscan LS 4000 ED. I am trying to get the best quality scans without doing a custom profile of the scanner (which I don't know how and don't have time to do).
I have read Bruce's review of the scanner and am following his guidelines. In NikonScan 3.1.4 (Mac OS 10.3.1) and I have unchecked the Nikon Color Management in Preferences and am only using ICE set to Normal and I'm scanning to 14 bits.
One big question I have relates to the color space the scans end up in. When I open these scans, they show sRGB as the profile. This, to me, would indicate that the color gamut would be clipped as compared to Adobe RGB 1998 or something larger.
What settings would you recommend for best results in this situation? Would another scanning software provide better results?
