I am indeed happy, I used vuescan and their film profiles for colours, some small contrast applied and crops done via Photoshop and saved as a jpg file. I said testing as this is the second roll on the XA (bought for £10 non working due to missing shutter button cover) and I think the range finder is slightly out of adjustment as the focusing seems a bit off on other shots ( maybe Im being picky here, but will try an slr for that extra sharpness ) this was the first time using the scanner properly other than deciding which software to use tests, and I follow @platypus recommendation of reading http://alibosworth.com/technical/ so this scans have only been done at 1350dpi which plenty left to be able to experiment. Overall, I'm very happy ,I thought the process was going to take longer than a flatbed where 12 images can be scan but it feels rather a quick process with the Minolta. Oh, here is the best part, bought it on Facebook market place for stupid money ( for parts/ non working / as it is ) person couldn't be bother to get vuescan/silverfast, so I took the opportunity and now have a working scanner for very little money.
Thanks @miro_o for the comments.
