[filmscanners] RE: over resolving scans

My apologies for wrongful attribution!
The example I chose is not - repeat not - where compensation development was
used.  Normal development was followed by intensification.   Adams describes
this as N+1 (or normal plus 1) development.  The intensification is more
pronounced for the higher densities.  (See page 250 of Adams' book 'The

In this particular test of Plus-X Professional 4 X 5 the characteristic
curve from Zone 0 to Zone XII is displayed: it is clear that the curve -
fairly linear at this point - is capable of still further densities, though
it is doubtful if they would be printable.

Yes, I do use compensation development, but that is when I must strive or am
compelled to contain the scene luminosities on the emulsion in use and
giving workable densities.

I have no intention in arousing arid disagreement, I simply want to point
out that you were in error.  It is possible you know!
