"I've done the Kodachrome IT8 calibration thing with SilverFast Ai for my Epson V750, and it really does work. No more nasty blues. Now I just need to pony up the money to also buy the Nikon CoolScan IV version of SilverFast Ai, since that's where I prefer to scan 35mm slides."

LaserSoft Imaging has been the world's only manufacturer of
Kodachrome Calibration Targets

kodachrome_01_tn Kodachrome film has been the professional's choice since 1935 due to greater sharpness, ultrafine grain and naturally vivid colors - quite simply the Look & Feel of Kodachrome. It was for many years the standard film for professional color photography, especially when submitting images to high profile magazines such as National Geographic.

Why is the calibration with a Kodachrome target important?
Accordingly the human eye will see more of the yellow spectrum contained in a Kodachrome image than the scanner's CCD. Consequently scanning a Kodachrome transparency with an ICC profile based on a Fuji or Ektachrome IT8 calibration, will produce bluish scans. Only with a dedicated Kodachrome calibration target can correct and original "Kodachrome colors" be achieved.
