Jerry, Thanks. You're quite right about 13x19 inch prints - I printed my first couple of prints at 13x19 last night and am very happy with the results. At that size though, it is clearly at the upper limits of the the 35 mm film format in terms of apparent image sharpness and film grain. At least with my 18-25mm Nikon lens, though a sharper lens would presumably do better. One caution on using the scanner's software to adjust for the cast. I prefer to use the green slider in Photoshop, as it is my understanding (based on Norman Koren's tests) that if any adjustments are done in Filmget, they are done in 8 bits! The output still goes to Photoshop in 16 bits, but the image has already been degraded. Not sure if anyone else has verified this?
