[filmscanners] Re: Pixels and Prints


Yes, but you can get rid of real grain and artifical grain if you use a
program like Neat Image. Use it last of all after sharpening and it will get
rid of sharpening artefacts as well, or at least reduce them to the level
where they are not noticeable. Neat Image Pro+ is my best buy of all time.

A 6MP digital image is equivalent to a 2000dpi scan, not a 4000dpi scan
which gives 24 MP. My Minolta 5400 gives about 40MP scan (230 MB files!),
but some of my D100 images look as good at 12x18. Depends on content. l use
Neat Image on both.

The idea that you "won't have grain" is somewhat misleading.  When you
upsize to 11x17, you will have the equiv of grain in the form of digital
artifacts.  At even 8x10, I can tell the difference between a 35mm film
image and a 6mpixel Camera, and it is even more obvious at 11x17.
Realistically, a 6mPixel camera is equiv to 4000dpi scan of 35mm film.
Which generates some amazing images, but still doesn't quite match film when
you enlarge it.
