Re: filmscanners: Sharpness of color chrome vs color negative.

The sharpest films color I scan are transparency films: Provia and Velvia,
occasionally Kodachrome.  I haven't noticed any greater sharpness in color
negative films, but I don't use them very often; certainly they seem to be
equivalent for my purposes in many situations (i.e., I don't notice a _lack_ of
sharpness).  The sharpest of all is Tech Pan, of course.

I try not to shoot anything faster than ISO 100, overall, whether it be slides
or negatives, simply because I lose sharpness.  Only if I really need the speed
would I shoot anything slower.  For example, I'll resort to Portra 800 in night
scenes without a tripod, or T-Max P3200 for street scenes under the same
conditions.  The only exception to this is Tri-X, which I use as a
general-purpose B&W film for street photography; SP doesn't have to be super
sharp and the speed is very useful.
