For 4x5 inches, I get a maximum scanned resolution on film of around 24000 x
30000; for 8x10 inches, I get 48000 x 60000.  The backs you describe pale in
comparison.  And are they actually covering a full frame?

But I can get that from film, and I can do it on medium-format--no need to
go LF.

So does film.  It's called push or pull processing, and it produces similar
results (with similar disadvantages).

In MF or LF?
