This could be due to a couple of factors. If there is any tendency for
flatbed to produce a softer image it will compress to a smaller JPEG. Also,
film scanners will tend to enhance the film grain, which would be absent in
a high resolution print produced with analog methods. The enhanced grain
would also increase the JPEG file size.
