Does a custom profile and multiexposure matter? We scan a high-contrast Ektachrome slide using SilverFast and VueScan, comparing the results to Canon's ScanGear.
We've updated our review of the CanoScan 9000F with scans made using SilverFast and VueScan, both which were recently updated with support for this new high-resolution flatbed scanner.
Our test image is an Ektachrome slide of Rodin's Thinker at the Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. Taken on a bright sunny day, the image includes blue sky, green foliage, the light stone of the building and the dark bronze of the statue. A nice test.
We used ScanGear just as we did for the images in our main review for a baseline image. Then we used VueScan's multiexposure option with the built-in scanner profile. And finally we used SilverFast to build a custom profile for the 9000F, using that on a multiexposure scan.
Read our addendum to see the scans and judge for yourself.
