My F4's Broken...
- Edit My Images
Well some confusion here? as there is a difference between scanned detail results from a neg and "the look of a scanned result from a neg"But the labs choose to output the scans to a certain file size, e.g. FilmDev's medium scans all have a short side of 2048 pixels. This leads to the bizarre situation where a medium scan of a 35mm and 6x9 medium format negative would be the same size. A 6x45 medium scan would be smaller than a medium scan of a 35mm image.
I'm not sure how you read that from my comment of "I suspect the Noritsu or Frontier would outperform my Plustek by some margin with like-for-like settings."?
And I'm open to be corrected in my understanding of scanners is wrong ..all scanners have a true dpi depending on the optics etc so the detail you get from the neg depends on the scanner from V550 to a £100,000 scanner.
So it doesn't matter if you have low or high scan, the detail in the neg stays the same as the lab scanner optics are designed to produce one result for detail no matter if the scan was 6,400 dpi i.e. you can't change the optics of the scanner from it's true dpi to produce better detail by increasing the scan.
