Re: filmscanners: OT-ish Epson 1270, was Repro house..

Photo Glossy Film used to be the premier product in the range, but I'm not

I really like Premium SemiGloss paper and Heavyweight Matte myself. I 
tried both of these on an Epson 890 I had briefly , but haven't got around 
to trying them on my 1200 yet.
