Problem Scanning Fuji Pro 160S and 160C

  1. I scanned my first rolls of Fuji Pro 160S and 160C using a Nikon 9000
    and Nikon Scan 4.0.2 and the results are far from acceptable. When I
    look at the levels plots the blue is spread across the entire range,
    but red and blue are not. Images looks too green. When I scan Kokak
    Protra 160NC and 160VC I get levels plots where all three colors are
    spread across the entire range and the scans looks very close to
    correct colors. Aynone have any recommendations how to scan the new
    Fuji Pro films?
     
  2. I have found this film to be absolutely outstanding. I have the Nikon 8000 and Nikon Scan 4.02 and I just use the scanner for basic scanning (at 14 bit, resolution according to final print size, digital ice and that's it); the rest I do in photoshop. There, I find a beautiful range of tones and virtually no grain. I'm not sure that the preview screen in Nikon Scan is color managed as it is Pshop, in any event, you're best to judge the result in the final editing software whatever that may be.
