    Hi all,

    I need help regarding setup Nikon 5000ED...I hope in your help...I've
    bought this scanner few time ago...and the only purpose it's to get an
    easy image acquired to give to photo lab and have a print...

    I often use a positive film and I'd like to use easily this scanner...I
    don't know how to setup this one better...

    I would only acquire the whole film, save the image and print at shop
    photo lab...no special effect..nothing only acquire in order to
    print.... scan film for example at 3000 dpi...

    With Nikon scan sw 4.02 version I use...flag on "Use Nikon colour
    management"

    Monitor : Use my profile....Sony d_65.........I have got a Trinitron 21"
    Sony CPD-G500

    the monitor is calibrated

    RGB: Adobe sRGB (1998)

    and then NO FLAG on Sharp Mask

    16 bit selected
    Digital Ice : On---normal
    Curve level....no modify
    No scan ehanancer...No scaneer extra...

    Why every photo scanned is dark....few light...every time is it possible
    I have to modify the level and in this case I don't know how much...I
    saw there is a buttom...Automatic...but my friend use change red...green
    and blue channel with cursor....no possible,... I hope in a single setup
    for each positive film...not for each single image to acquire.....

    If I put flag using scan ehancer on Nikon scan 4.02 sw on
    toolchest...the acquisition is very brilliant...the colour seems more
    true....

    Is it possible that I should change for each photo a different setup on
    toolchest...for example level scan enhancer...or other parameters....

    how much time in this should I take......?...too much...

    I only want acquire the whole film save each image and bring them to
    photo lab...to get print....

    Please help me for the single setup....I would not change every time for
    each


    Please help me in the better setup...only setup for the scanner to have
    image...in tiff or jpeg...to bring them to photo lab

    Thanks in advance
    Stefano

    What happens if you set "Monitor" to Factory default? I suspect you
    might be picking up the wrong or a corrupted monitor profile.

    If that doesn't resolve the problem, switch the NCM off for the moment
    and select a 2.2 gamma setting. Is that any different or better?
