Re: filmscanners: Good neg stck on Scanwit
No, what I meant was - I can *easily* slap a good transparency in and then
print off a pin-sharp, grainless 11 x 8 at 300 dpi. But with a negative, I
would normally spend time ensuring the print was free of grain, by the
usual blurring of layers, etc etc. I agree that you can get very good 11 x
8's, and larger, off negatives with a 2700dpi scanner. But for me anyway,
it requires more work and care.
I was also taking into account that the enquiry seemed to be coming from a
publishing point of view, so I imagine his standards for output are going
to be high..
So, I do agree with you, and I'm sure your prints are great!
