[filmscanners] RE: scanner purchase



In terms of resolution for 20x24" prints from a 4x5" film you need a
scanner that will give 7,200 pixels x 6,000 pixels (assuming output 300
pixels per inch)

7200/5 by 6000/4 = 1500 pixels per inch scanner.

The lower Optical Density flatbeds have more than adequate resolution
(eg Epson Perfection 3200) BUT will not capture all the shadow detail.

Suggest consider the new Microtek Artixscan 1800f incl. Silverfast Ai
Pro 6 which has 4.8D, 48bit - the highest OD of any flatbed under 5000
