Regarding my comments on this scanner above i thought I'd post a few recent examples, all from film taken around 1990, so thirty years ago time ago.

The first is a scan of Kodachrome 25 transparency
The second Ektachrome 64
The third Kodak Gold 400 neg film.

In each case the software has made an exact match of the colours. I still have the original wet print of the negative shot, and the scanned picture is the same colour, just much better definition.
