RE: filmscanners: Films for scanning

When 2700 DPI scanners first became available there was no 4000 DPI CCD's at
least at a cost effective price. The SS4000 has been out for a while.

:(  Drat.  Now I have to make some time after working hours.
I'll have to collect together a variety of types of film
and try at least a frame from each.

Which makes me disappointed I didn't wait longer and get
a SS4000 as I'd originally planned.  If this is true, why
did the scanner manufacturers choose 2700dpi if it's so
prone to aliasing?  Or are they clueless and simply picked
it as a reasonable resolution to get an A4 print at 300dpi?

This could get expensive...


PS Any idea what is happening to your subject lines, Tony?
