Now whilst I consider myself a proficient computer user I am by no means an IT technician. It is not easy to find any reliable information regarding the scanning dpi needed to extract the most from film, as the grain structure is probably the limiting factor and once the scanner res can reproduce the grain, nothing is to be gained by using a higher resolution scan.
Typically Plustdk only scan the negs deemed worthy of printing. Plustek i Ai accessories.
