RE: filmscanners: Was New Nikon performance, now dust
What are the best color and b&w films in terms of scanning? From what I've
read thus far, it sounds like Kodak Supra has a slight edge for color, and
the C41 processed films (XP2 super and T400CN) for b&w. Are there others?
Also, if one is planning ultimately to scan and maintain files in digital
format (and print from there), are there any advantages left to shooting
transparencies as opposed to negatives--given that the latter has so much
more exposure latitude? Or does the finer resolution of slide film still
make this the preferred emulsion when scanning?
