The Problem with Pakon PSI Software raw output
This is a demonstration of occasional image-quality issue when exporting 8-bit "raw" files from the PSI software when scanning film with the Pakon 135+.
Despite the Pakon 135+ being able to scan at 16 bits of image data, the PSI software is only able to export files at 8-bits, even when exporting raw files. This sometimes causes visual quantization issues in highlight areas when raw files are processed. TLXClientDemo's planar raw output is the full 16-bits and does not suffer from this issue. TLXClientDemo's planar raw files can be easily batch converted with the PPRC tool.
