[filmscanners] Re: Lab scans

Julie might want to consider using Kodak PhotoCD and Kodak Pro 
PhotoCD scans until she gets her scanner back. The PhotoCD scans go 
up to 2048 16-bit samples per inch (spi), which I find a stretch for

the exposures worth working on. And they can be sent back for Pro 
PhotoCD scans at 4096 16-bit spi, which is more than needed for 8x12 
prints even after some cropping. I wish I could drive 30 minutes to 
my lab; I mail to them and they send the film and CD back to me by
