Superia X-TRA 400 and Superia Premium 400 are both different films and are sold side by side here in Japan, theres a chart in some of the shops illustrating the difference

階調 translates as tone, 硬調 on the high side of the up/down scale means high contrast

色調 translates as colour tone.

So up is high contrast, down is low contrast, left is low saturation, right is high saturation.

unlike digital sensors that use Bayer interpolation, a scanner captures the RGB data for every pixel. single pass, three pass, whatever. you get the full monty. it doesn’t make much sense to degrade the data so it can be interpolated from a RAW file. instead the user can save the data as either a (8/16bit) JPEG, or (8/16bit) TIFF file. Vuescan let’s you save the scan data into a special kind of extendable TIFF called a DNG. the DNG wrapper lets the scan program separate the tonal data from the color data. using LR or PS one can then apply their own secret sauce. :)

i’d like to share a couple of photos with you, those are not taken by me. this shot was taken with 50mm Carl Zeiss Sonnar ZM F1.5 lens on Adox Silvermax film. I guess Helios 85mm F1.5 is one of its descendants, well its design is taken from Biotar 1.5 but I guess it is related with Sonnar F1.5 too.

i have a lot of film scanned with noritsu scanner at the lab. at first i was happy, especially with the results from the consumer fuji films. but the cinema fuji film - eterna, was obviously out of balance, with green shift. i’ve tried to colour balance, and was again sort of satisfied by the results, but then decided to scan same pictures with my minolta. hmm, here i think the quality is much better. there are even colours noritsu did not capture, the photo on the right have deeper colours, but if i try to do something like that with the noritsu scanned photo, i get red skin, and artefacts. so i am confused, i paid for the scanning, because i have very limited time recently, and wanted to get cool out of the scanner photos without spending much time on the process.

Do yourself something good and stop scanning like crazy. Listen to your eye doctor and get your nose of the computer screens.

Print and enjoy the real advantage of the analog imaging system by holding a superior product in your hands: a fibre base silver print from an analog negative. Paper consumption is what keeps the factories running. Not film.
