Velvia produces more saturated colour than Provia 100F but the grain is not
quite as fine (but it is virtually invisible at 2700ppi).  The density of
Velvia can cause similar problems with scanning that 100F or Kodachrome do.
I haven't got around to scanning most of my velvia slides.

You can do the same with negs and prints.  I presume there would be
companies in other countries like albox (www.albox.com.au) that produce
archival storage sheets.  Albox have them for slides, negs and prints so you
can put combinations of them into the same folders.  However, I've mainly
used them for sheets to store negs and slides.  It would be nice to at least
put an index print in with the negs.

I've tried scanning a couple of silver based films using the LS30.  Vuescan
was essential because with Nikonscan the film was so dense it came up with
nothing useful.  But for my purposes T400CN eliminates the density problem
and has amazingly fine grain.
