[filmscanners] Re: 3 year wait



James

8000dpi scanners are here now, you just need to pay 13,000 for them (Imacon
848).  The ppi is not really that important when scanning if getting every
last bit of information is important.  That's where the density range of the
scanner comes into play.  ppi is important for the final image size required
and the target output medium.  All the latest scanners are probably getting
just about everything out of film.  The density range is more important for
slides than negs, so any current scanner will get good scans from your negs,
even my LS30.  All the top-line crop of scanners should work for you on the
negs, and most will work well on slides.
