I'm confused. Are you just trying to calibrate the scanner, or your entire workflow?

Most of the X-rite Color Checker type solutions are reflective targets, meant to be imaged with your camera. That is, the color response of your imaging device is part of the workflow.

the OP cites two flatbed scanners in his opening post.

this requires a reflective IT8 target (as you cited above) for calibration.

That does simplify things somewhat. The OP also talked about negative -> positive conversion, which had me thinking that (film) negatives would be in the mix.

OP also mentions V600, which is a flatbed scanner, but lots of folks on this forum use for negatives.
