Before You Begin
It is important that you know when to calibrate and when to focus the scanner. The 
table below is a guideline for calibrating and focusing. Focusing can occur as 
infrequently as when a different film format is scanned or as frequently as every 
scan. 
You can manipulate scanned images using a program such as the Kodak 
Professional Digital Print Production Software (DP2) or the Kodak Professional 
HR 500 TWAIN Data Source before sending the images to your digital printer.
