"Proprietary Advanced Dye Layering Technology delivers reduced grain in shadows and higher signal-to-noise ratios when scanning low light scenes. Extended highlight latitude delivers greater flexibility when lighting extreme situations, and enables up to two stops more image information to be extracted from scene highlights. Digital “dodging and burning” is a very powerful tool in the colorists’ toolkit, now made more powerful by the wider dynamic range of the KODAK Professional Color Negative Films. Its wider latitude further differentiates film capture from the limited dynamic range of digital capture. When capturing scenes with very high dynamic range, KODAK Professional Color Negative Films produce images with extended density ranges. If traditional 10-bit scanner data encoding schemes are used to digitize films having extended density range, highlight information stored on the film could be lost."
Chief Takeaway... Scan at 16 bit or larger.
