To answer your question. Yes.
Frank, the biggest single improvement in my photo
"technique" these last couple of years was giving
up on generic ISO 200 negative films.
I may have stumbled on to that discovery, but the
difference in the scans was huge. And I made this
discovery (and saw the vast improvement in the scans)
while using a 1950 dpi film scanner (Microtek 35t+).
Try a roll of Fuji Reala or Kodak Royal Gold and see
if you don't agree. Both are ISO 100.
As I write this, I'm scanning one of my favorite (old)
images to see if the Nikon can improve on earlier scans.
What a pity -- the image is on Kodak Gold 400, and the
grain is just awful.
