Re: filmscanners: Was New Nikon performance, now dust

I tried Kodak Supra 400 and was disappointed - too much grain, probably
because it was the 400 speed.  I have not tried the Supra 100.

I did like the results of Fuji Superia 100, though - good color and
comparatively less grain.

| What are the best color and b&w films in terms of scanning?  From what

| 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?
