Fellow scanners,

I've been scanning slides on the 4000ED, correcting, then saving the
16bit files as my masters. It's beginning to get crowded on my h.d.  My
reasoning for keeping 16bit rather than 8bit was because I figured if I
had to do a little more adjusting of curves, etc. then the files would
handle it better. Am I right?  What's the difference in likely outcome
(quality) if I did further (minor) edits on a 16bit/110mb instead of an
8bit/55mb file?  Rescanning of these would require up to an hour each of
spotting because they're older Kodachromes so it comes down to storage
space vs risks on quality.

Thanks for any advice.
Ed Verkaik
