Canon 9950F B&W Operating Ideas

  1. I've struggled to get good black and white scans from my 9950F (using
    the supplied software). This morning, I finally took some time to
    experiment with assorted settings and stumbled into a simple
    combination that seems to work consistently. I found that setting the
    scan to color negative source, output color mode gray scale, auto tone
    off, unsharp mask on, backlight correction low, calibrate to set
    automatic on each scan, I finally was getting predictable and usable
    scans.

    I have previously been getting scans that were very muddy and that
    required a great deal of manipulation. This combination gave me a
    good, easy place to start, good shadow detail and required just a bit
    of tweaking and sharpening to give good print output.
