    Re: Microtek M1 Scanner

    Ted Harris gave the M1 an optical resolution of 2400-2600dpi, which is significantly higher than the 2000dpi optical resolution of the Epsons (my own estimate). I hear conflicting stories of how the M1 compares to the Epsons. Some say it's about the same, but if the M1 really does have 2400-2600dpi optical, then the pictures should look significantly sharper than the Epsons.

    If you aren't getting at least 2400 ppi out of your V750 either the film isn't being held flat and/or at the right suspension height to match the optics for your particular scanner unit. Do some tests and shim your holder in increments that are a fraction of a mm. You can use cut report covers, sheets of mylar or even thin business cards for quick tests. It is highly likely you will probably find a "sweet spot" that is better than your film holder's base height.
