Art and Fellow Listreaders:

The big RF companies use drum scans and offer tech support.

I think the problem is that the mistrust isn't for the concept of
digital, it's for the idea that us little guys can even come remotely
close to the quality the big companies offer.

See if you can beg or borrow a disc or two from PhotoDisc, Corbis,
Brand X or DigitalVision (to name the biggest players) and compare
the scan quality to what our home scanners can offer. Sometimes
we measure up, and sometimes we don't.
