Re: filmscanners: why not digital minilabs?

Yes the quality is great. I tend to do most of my prints on my Epson 1270
but some I do have printed on the Fuji Frontier. At the Lab I have used the
the biggest they do is 10*15 after that the Durst Epsilon (also good but
only 254dpi). The results are better than the 1270 and can even stand upto
quite serious abuse. As yet I haven't tried a Lightjet but these are better
still. I also saw the output from a Pictograph which was also very good. If
I was selling the prints (something I have considered) I would be too
worried about the durability of the 1270 prints - but they are still pretty
good and compare favourably to most of the poor results I have seen from UK
film labs. The digital prints seem to be a lot more reliable.

The only thing you have to watch with the digital printing labs is that they
show perfectly things like grain and posturisation. My Epson hides all but
the worst cases due to the way it lays down the ink.
