Subject: Red Streak, Vuescan, SCSI etc.
I just picked up my FS-4000US and purchased the Vuescan 7.2.9.
My Canon is made in Japan, no. 001321. When I scan the slide in DEFAULT setting, either by FilmGet1.01 or Vuescan 7.2.9, I don't get too much of the problem. However, at the default setting the slides (Provia) are too dark. As soon as I crank up the brightness (not too much, 1.4 in vuescan) in filmget and Vuescan, I get serious red streak.
I then started trying the long exposure mode, it seems to improve a lot.
Now I'm not sure whether it's a defective scanner or not. Any suggestions?
Besides, do you think that the SCSI interface is much faster? I have both interfaces but I don't have the SCSI cable, and not planning to spend more money until someone tells me it's much faster.
