[filmscanners] Re: Density vs Dynamic range



No sir, you do not know, you just think you know. What you probably know is
electronics and what you do not know is anything at all about image repro
and although you may not actually be a religious artifact you most certainly
act like one.

God himself would have trouble with you, but of course that is speculation
as you are not yet in a complete state of grace although you might well
consider yourself to be so.

Dickbo,

I'm hardly a Reverend.  There's no need for juvenile name calling, which you
tend to turn to when someone tells you, you are wrong, and you can't come up
with a substantive argument in return.  At least I'm adult enough to keep
the discussion technical.

Suffice to say, I know what I know, and I know what I don't, and I know what
I know is right, in this case....and I know what you said below is wrong.

And...that wouldn't be the first time ;-)

Austin
