Last summer I saw an exhibit of 20x24in Iris prints, the originals were pentax 6x7 negs(hand held) many of them. The subjects were Memories of Italy so they were European flavored cityscapes and Roman ruins. I spoke with the Photographer And she had done the scans herself with a Minolta Dimage Multi scanner which tops out at 1128 for 120 film. These prints were sharp and detailed, the Iris helped but I gotta believe the scans were great. So maybe our 1200dpi and 1600dpi flatbeds are not the same animal as a dedicated film scanner. I know my 1200dpi Powerlook III is a little short for 16x20 prints. Hoping for good news on the 1600 Steve M. - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
