After reading many reviews on how good the canoscan 9000F MK2 is, i got a used copy.
Unfortunately i have to state the obvious finding here, even with VueScan 9.4.41, no matter what settings i do, with or without the holder, the results are definitely inferior to a regular lab scan which is using lower DPI but dedicated film scanning optics.

Hence the scanner will now just be used to scan my existing negatives from days of old and not for my current projects and new albums.
So, if you are planning to do your own scanning, just forget these Canon’s inferior products, save your money and time and let the lab do it for you, they usually have a fast turn around time of 1-2 days max.
