Re: filmscanners: Enlargements & Film Sacnners



I shot some hockey pictures this last season, and from that experience would
recommend the longer lens. I used 2 types of film Fugi 800 and Kodak portra
400. I have a Nikon Coolscan 3 and the 800 film scanned with huge grain
making it impossible crop the negs to gat the expressions on the kids faces
I was looking for. The Kodak was OK and using Genuine Fractals i could get
the "digital zoom" with some effort. I was using a f2 80mm lens If I would
have had the longer one the I could have got the lose up without the fuss.
Around here (In Ontario) a lot of photographers are shooting digital and
selling prints as the kids leave the arena.
