I just got a few scans of my 4x5 negatives and chromes that were made with Imacon 848 at the highest resolution available for 4x5 : 2040 dpi.
The scans are so call raw scans - no adjustement - color or sharpness - as they were delivered. I jsut converted them to sRGB. Maybe an unnecesasry commet - they were really cheap of only ~ $10 each.
Bellow I include scans of one crome (E100VS) and negative (Pro160S) that were taken both at the same time and place and camera/lens settings (apart from the exposure) at fstop around f/22 with my Fujinon 125/5.6 CMW.
My question: - is the quality of the scans concerning the sharpness and nois waht one can expect or it can be done better with this scanner? The negative/chrome look sharp to me with 4x and 8x loupe but more magnification would be needed to decide.
Fist photo shows the whole frame and then there are two cutouts at full resolution.
