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.

| Also, if one is planning ultimately to scan and maintain files in digital
