IMHO too. maybe product shots, but i don't know about that either...

Only point to make, is that if you are using silverfast, the film profile you pick can make a huge difference to the look of the film. As there is no profile for it (last time I checked the updates for silverfast), I would wonder how it might look with different profiles, sometimes even odd choices can give nice results.

Also worth checking the colour balance too..silverfast can tweak that as well, again..output can change a lot on this one.

The ist samples I saw of the film, looked very different to yours...WB looks pretty cool/blue & green to my eye..from your scans
