|I chose Agfa precisa ct 100 because it is (was) the least expensive slide film and so it is relativly easy to scan.
You are absolutely right, ektar is quite hard to demask, usually I use a simple fotoshop action to remove the orange mask, often it works quite well, sometimes it doesn´t. I believe there are two major problems, lighting conditions while exposing the film, especially artifical (LED) ligth and the light used to enlight the negative while scanning, I believe my cheap lighting plate is so so in terms of it´s spectral qualities. Another problem is the "primary" white balance that has to beset before the negative is converted, when you fail in this first step, everything is ruined already.
I love Leica ! But I need Pentax
