As soon as you start ‘fixing’ image data, you’re basically removing colour information. Lift shadows, you’re removing data. Lift mid-tones, you’re removing data etc. With a scanner you scan as you like, whereas a digital camera captures a finished file and that’s it (no second chances).

Scanners allow INPUT for colour correction e.g, you can scan darker, lighter etc., and porposefully lighten/darken/add/subtract colour BEFORE the scan. There’s a big difference between a digitally ‘tweeked’ file, and an image that has been purposefully scanned with these adjustments.

The finished scan will have a full-range of relevant data, whereas a captured image doesn’t allow ‘new’ info – only what was captured – good or bad, you can only add ‘false’ information (not captured).

For many different reasons, getting it right in-camera is the right way – digital or film 🙂
