I tried to scan some black & white film today.
I used a Canon CanoScan 9000F.
It's really nice as the scanner finds the images and inverts them automatically.
But I had 2 problems:
1) It did not find all images. Some of them are really dark, being just some dots on the negative.
How can I get around the automatic image detection while scanning film?
2) The scanner is advertised to scan 48bit and being able to scan 16bit greyscale.
I saved the scans as tiff files. The settings for export were only available when exporting jpg, so I assumed the tiffs have said 16bit.
Sadly, the files are 8 bit.
I read the manual and it suggests doing what I did
How do I get the 16bit depth?
