[filmscanners] Re: 3 year wait

Don't ask me why I am refereeing between these two, but I'll make one
stab at it.

Since both people are anal retentive, at least I shouldn't get any sh*t
on me ;-)

I believe what Anthony is saying is that it is rare that a 10 stop
difference would occur in adjacent areas of an image, not that a full
image wouldn't contain a 10 stop range of contrast.

Perhaps if you read one another more thoroughly, some of these disputes
could be avoided.
