[filmscanners] Re: 3 year wait

I can attest to the fact that my hand held Olympus Stylus Epic with Fuji
Press 800 records detail I can see on a light table with 22x magnification
that isn't resolved with either the Polaroid SS120 or the Nikon LS-8000.
Nearly, but not quite.

But I'm not all sure the average drum scan would reveal it either.

Fair enough.  I still tend to believe there is more than 4000 dpi in
medium to low speed films.  Or at least that there is more than the 4000
dpi captured by prosumer scanners, which might not be a true 4000 dpi.
Otherwise we wouldn't need drum scans anymore.

Now, don't get me wrong, I think 4000 dpi scanners are great and have
made it possible for professional scanning for the average guy.  But I
suspect fine grain films can supply more than the 4000 dpi is capturing.
