    I use VueScan now and get great results but I tweak in Capture NX. You should be able to turn out something like what I've attached below with a little tweaking. We probably need to take this over to DPUG now though before we get chastised since this is heading toward forbidden hybrid territory in this forum.

    Some Provia

    You think Provia scans nice, you should try projection or viewing on a light table!!
    ME Super

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    See my earlier comment in the thread. These scans are as good as I can get but they just don't compare to the real thing on a light table. I really don't think a scan can do a slide on a light table any justice at all. The slides are sharper, have better color, and better dynamic range. Colors seem to go bit askew when you force them into sRGB color space.

    Yep I should've seen that. Don't know why I overlooked it. I guess I was too distracted by the images. Very nice scans, BTW

    Slides are really amazing: last week I was at my uncle place and we got on projector some 30-40 years old slides. Colors are just unbelievable - like it was taken yesterday, on size cca 1x1,5 meters there was no grain, beautiful contrast and vivid colors with 3D pop up.

    And my uncle did no used Leica or some fancy SLR cameras: slides were made with agfa sensor rangefinder, some old kodak cameras... My cousin was planing to scan those slides - but on the end he saw that true "power" of slides is in projecting them on big screen, and gave up of scaning

    I'm also a really big fan of Provia. But I like Velvia too. Provia is probably my favorite, all-around emulsion anymore. But Velvia is still a lot of fun to use, with its deep saturation and almost invisible grain.

    Following are a few images I took. The first two are Velvia 50 and the following three are Provia 100. I found myself literally, suddenly right in the middle of a Civil War reenactment with the last three photos. Nothing quite like being up close and personal to the action.

    I suggest everybody to look at Oleg Novikov website, he has amazing pictures and most are shot with provia.

    I have about 50 rolls of Ektachome 64T frozen and about 20 or so of EPR. Now you're making me want to do a side by side.

    I do agree. But Oleg doesn't often shoot Provia at box speed. The trick to saturating the normally subdued Provia is to underexpose it, and it works beautifully for many of ON's works.
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.
