pakon f135 settings?

Hello there! This is my first post. I ve been shooting film since 4 years now and just got my pakon f135 scsnner.

I was wandering what are your prefered scanning settings when you scan with the pakon? How to improve dynamic range? Workflow tips?

Thanx for help!

The only major tip is to set the default contrast down to about -13. That will be good for the majority of scans. You can, or course, touch up each frame individually after the scan and before exporting. Export to a dedicated folder, you can set this to the desktop, and then from Lightroom do an import and MOVE to the Lightroom repository -- usually on an external drive. From there, you can do further touchups as necessary -- but the the Pakon, the touchups are usually very minor.
