Way back in the days when you had to scan one pixel at a time and chisel its RGB values into the rock you were working on, I had a Howtek slide scanner. It was the most expensive, time-sucking, unreliable and ultimately useless pile of crap I've ever wasted money on.

It did have one feature that might apply here: for color negs, it'd have you scan a blank section of film (ie, processed but unexposed) to get a baseline for the orange mask. It'd save that as part of the profile for that particular film, then remove the orange color during the scan.

Then it'd crash or lock up or freeze or something equally annoying.

But it was a great idea. Could photoshop subtract an image of raw film from an image of exposed film and land on something useful, do you think?
