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

Sharpness is determined by the 50% point and resolution is determined by
just visible lines (typically 5% to 10%).  If the 50% frequency (fc) is
60cycles/mm, the the 10% to 90% transition width of a white-black step will

2.2/(2*pi*fc)=0.0058 mm.
