Anyone working with Kodachrome scans without adjusting the scanner to the special film properly knows the problem of the unsightly bluecast. Some scanner manufacturer’s software may have a Kodachrome mode for selection, which usually isn’t very helpful because a device specific calibration is lacking. Therefore we have implemented generic Kodachrome ICC-profiles for many supported film scanners in SilverFast. These provide the user with a very good starting point.
Kodachromes with maximum Dynamic Range
Scanning Kodachromes with attention to recording the complete Dynamic Range is a considerable challenge. This, because the Dynamic Range reaches up to 3.8D – which is a grayscale range of 6300 shades and equals a contrast range of 1:6300! Fortunately SilverFast Multi-Exposure can handle the enormous Dynamic Range with film scanners. This guarantees reproduction of the deepest shades inside Kodachromes successfully.
