Re: filmscanners: Filmscanning vs. Flatbedding

Looks to me like it can't handle continuous-tone any better than a "toy"
camera you'd get with Cracker-Jacks! With "stellar" decisions like this, I'm
going to hold on to all my Kodak stuff--looks like they'll be *rarities* in
a few years, given this apparent death-wish from Rochester.

well, it's very very sharp and grain free.

but the tonality is HIDEOUS. It looks like a grab from a video picture. Look
at the highlights on the hair. Agh. Is this progress?

run! very fast! in the opposite direction!

I could do substantially better with my super speed graphic, a 50 year old
lens, some APX 100 and a jug of Xtol.

tone! tone! tone!

obviously that camera can do a bazillion wunnerful things but film has a few
tricks up its sleeve yet methinks.
