Re: filmscanners: RE: filmscanners: Re: Hello, thanks, and more.

It's not the screen, it's the detail you have captured scanning at 2720spi - 
when you zoom in the screen pixels are able to show this detail.  When you zoom 
in on the 680dpi your screen is probably using 2 or even 3 pixels to show one 
pixel of the image so it will clearly not look as sharp.
