Hi! I'm new. This is my first posting. I'm relatively new to photography. I like to use slide film mostly, and I've been having trouble getting/making usable scans of my slides. I had the shop where I get my develping done scan a set, and they really didn't come out right (small color anomalies- red going a little to purple and such, mostly BIG exposure anomalies- more on that further down). I eventually ended up buying a slide scanner (PrimeFilm 3650u). I can fiddle with the settings more when I'm scanning at home, but I'm still getting just varying degrees of the same exposure anomalies. It's like the scanner itself has a really tight exposure threshold that's being stacked on top of the slide image. Areas that are a little darker than the "center" of the exposure (but not by a lot, still with lots of depth and detail) are rendered as significantly underexposed in the scans. An in frame contrast of one stop gets amplified to three stops, for example. Although I don't know for sure, I don't think this should be expected. The guys at the shop told me that this was just the limitations of the technology at work, but at the same time, I know that a lot of professionals like to use slide film, and I don't believe for a moment that any professional would tolerate the degree of inaccuracy I'm experiencing with this. Is there anything I can do to improve the accuracy of my scans? Thanks!
