PROBLEM #1: Light washes out text.
I am using the standard setup build: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=333
with cheap clamp lamps not too different than those shown in the picture (but not the same).
The lights are so bright that it washes out the text. This is not due to a reflection from the platen (at least Im' pretty sure it's not).
I set my camera to shutterspeed 1/30; fstop 4.0; iso 80. Has anyone else experienced this? With so much light, would it be better for me to set a faster shutter speed?
PROBLEM #2: Noise seen in photoshop that I don't see in scantailor
AT the output screen in ST:
In Photoshop (or any photoviewer):
A few questions:
1) Why this difference, why doesn't ST show this noise (both are on the same monitor btw)?
2) Why am I getting this noise? Is there a setting on my camera I can use to stop this?
It's almost worth it to me to just take a screencap of the better looking ST output screen than try an assemble a file from the output that ST creates. But that seems really silly, why can't ST just save the file that it displays without the noise?
