Consider that a film scanner gives much higher resolution than a 5 megapixel camera...mine gives 3175 ppi, yielding a roughly 30 megabyte file at 8 bits/color. Scanner can also be used at 12 bits/color, which I doubt is possible with the camera. Also, by using auxiliary lenses, you'll be degrading the image. Some early digicams were also scanners...Leaf and Agfa had these...but the cameras were not meant for use as hand cameras, but studio tripod mounted. So, my opinion is that sure, you can do it, but with inferior results. on 04/12/2002 05:00 AM, Jim Cummins at email@example.com wrote: > Are there any subjective or objective comparisons of > (5M, ~$999 flavor) digital camera capture of slides or > negatives vs scanning the same slide or negative. > Auxillary lens usage is assumed for the digitial camera. > > If cropping is done at the capture point the camera > resolution would also be spread over the specific area > of interest.
