    Re: how large (or small) are your prints?

    I print for the wall at nominal 16x20, the biggest print I could ever make, either in the darkroom or on my desktop. Going larger than that requires an order of magnitude more money.

  36. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Once a scan can reproduce the grain of the film, down to its shape, there’s not much more to be mined. The more it can do this, the less, say, color depth matters.
