You might want to think about what the image should be in each photo. In the past, I've done experiments with various people by photographing $20 bills, that is something everyone had handy. Not full frame as you might get in trouble, but a good shot of Andrew Jackson. These product nice high contrast images. Perhaps you can think of a common household item that will produce continuous tones. Also, don't you want to vary the type of film as well? Can this be opened up to 35mm scanners later once you establish a baseline on the high end scanners. It would be interesting to see how the various 4000ppi scanners compare (ss4000, ss4000 plus, artixscan 4000t and the canon 4000ppi scanner.).
