That said, when I opened the photodisc test image shot on a 4x5 digital scanning back at something like 6000dpi, I could see the difference in tonality, sharpness and lack of grain even on my monitor and certainly on the epson prints. While my ls-2000 does not capture all the resolution of 35mm film, it certainly captures enough so that the film grain and resolution plays a roll in the quality of the print. Even at 8x10 enlargement. So, I think it makes perfectly good sense to use larger than 35mm formats for epson prints at the 8x10 and larger prints. Wish I had the camera and scanner capable of doing so. - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for instructions.
