Hi, Bob.

I scan with the Polaroid SS4000 @ 4000 dpi to produce a RAW TIFF, then do
all of my processing in software, either Paint Shop Pro v7 or Photoshop v6.
My results vary, depending on exposure as much as anything else vis-a-vis
the emulsion I use.

As a general rule, it's always good to overexpose negative emulsions, and
most especially the faster films with grain in mind.

I think you'll like Reala--very fine grain, not too saturated. Konica
Impresa 50 has the finest grain of all the negative films if you're not
familiar, neutral saturation with with fairly consistent good tonality
throughout.

Here's are some night shoots with Reala:

These were shot with Impresa:

Don't know if that helps or not.
