Much thanks to Kennedy and Roger Smith for quickly pointing out the examples of the "pepper grain" seen in Fuji film. I passed on these examples to my colleague with the Multi Pro, and he confirms that is the same effect he is seeing. However, he now seems a bit spooked by this effect and wants to trade the machine for the Nikon LS8000. This problem, although not similar optically, is like owning a Hasselblad lens that is "too sharp" for portraits. It reveals too many flaws in the subject. The photographer adds Softars or diffusion filters to the lens, or uses netting when printing. After reviewing the Rains page, and if I understand it correctly, the pepper grain can show up in scans made by Nikon and Imacon scanners as well, depending on scan resolution. I'm not sure if my colleague will be solving this problem by switching scanner models. Rocky Kneten - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
