[filmscanners] Re: My best scanner/film combinations -ideal film

Anthony - I had never thought of the possibility of an ideal film for
scanning like this, but I agree this would be great stuff.  Sadly you are
right it will never happen bec of digital, and because I think the
manufacturer would have to put up with a lot of flack about slides that
looked so crappy - low contrast.

And I meant to thank you and someone else (gone in the mists of e-time) for
suggesting Fuji Superia 100 as a good scanning neg film. I have never used
it so will try it. Until now I have been stuck between Supra and normal
Kodak Gold.  (I like the grain better on Supra but the colour on Gold).  I
think Kodak Royal Gold is/was considerably better than common person Gold,
but I can't get any of this any more, and not even sure if it is still made.
