    On the other hand, pulling the higher resolution in the scan means that you
don't have to interpolate  things in Photoshop <G>. Besides, while that dirt
and scratch removal in the Nikon scanner works well enough, it also reduces the
contrast and apparent sharpness of your scan, so it's not something you'd want
to leave in the ON position all the time anyway. Flip a coin, make a
choice.We've got a film scanner here that does 5080 dpi on 35mm and the Imacon
eeks up there toward 6000, I think. Wonder why?
