Just a quick question for those LF photographers who shoot film, have them digitally scanned and printed at a pro-lab...
1. What bit size do you have the lab print in? For example, I took some discs in to the lab and they said they don't print in 16 bit sizes.
2. What dpi are you using most commonly for a maximum image size of 16x20? In the past, I've used 300 dpi. However, is there any advantage to using something higher?
3. Lastly, what format (Tiff, jpeg, etc) works best for your printing needs? Any suggestions?
FWIW, I'm shooting 4x5, 5x7, and 8x10... predominantly HP5+ and FP4+. The lab also soups my films.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions and comments.
