Just got my new Nikon Coolscan IV ED and am very pleased with it but am a
little confused about the settings in 'Scanner Extras'
In the 'Scan Bit Depth' it always defaults to 8 bit although 12 can be
selected. I thought that scanning in 12 bit was always better so why does
it default to 8 bit?
The manual says that selecting 12 bit will send 16 bits to Photoshop. Does
this mean that if I am happy to use 8 bits in Photoshop then I shouldn't
scan at 12 bits.
Am I missing something important?
Thanks for any advice.
