|I did a compare - unscientific of course as these things can be tweaked - between the two scanner software packages. Epson's is far easier to use for me, but perhaps VueScan has a smidge of an edge in quality?
The negative is Neopan 100 developed in T-max. I scanned the negatives with wider latitude - i.e. with room to both ends of the negative's histogram. I then de-saturated and adjusted levels and curves on Photoshop CS2. With some work I suppose I could get the two scans more close ... but this serves as an example of the variations of scanning.
Though the images are desaturated, does one look bluer than the other?
