APS-C, because this is the smallest sensor size which gives some control over DOF on Wide Angle (angle equevof 28mm on FF). FF is better, but APS-C is acceptable for me.

AJDVD: I use the Epson 4490 which is older than the V700. I compared the scans from the Epson with my labs drumscanner. I used a Rolleiflex (6X6) and 3 films..... Kodakchrome 50 (old)/ T-MAX 100 (for its density in blacks) and NPS-160i from Fuji for skintones).
I scanned them myself with the Lomo negativeholder. Even at 400% the difference on a calibrated monitor where very small. There where small differences on the some edges but even there it was more a matter of taste then a difference in quality. Colorbalance was slighty better on the drumscanner but easily corrected in PS. Main difference was the black and white film. The Epson couldnt produce such a nice tonescale or density as the drumscanner.That said I think even for more demanding amateurs you get nice results with the Epson. But I compared a print from the drumscanner on an pro Epson printer with a handmade analog bw print......then I started to cry.......you probably know what I mean.

Hi. Once I scanned a pair of my Xpan frames on Huge Drum Scanner, weighting 600kg. The scans it produced were extremely poor quality. I saw bad drumscans on some forums, too. I decided that it is a problem to find really good drum scanner nowadays.They are too old.
So, you did find drum scanner which was as bad as your Epson. Try Imacon scanner better. Of course your negatives (or slides) must be a good quality.

Suave, the grain you see on your Epson scans has nothing common with the real film grain and is pure noise generated by Epson.

ThePhilips: Does DPR has a film scanner in the office?

It would be interesting to have a film camera or two in the studio comparison test.

If only they had have, they would forget about all those digital forever and rename the site to APR.

Epson V750 true optical resolution on film is 2300dpi. Too poor for film scanning.
I doubt v850 will be better. It is not a film scanner.
Used Nikon Coolscan, Imacon, Minolta, Plustek - that are film scanners.
6400dpi on Epson is a bad joke.
Can you compare it to Imacon 6300dpi? Here is what Imacon can at 6300 (24x65mm Xpan frame)

Neither Epson user have ever saw this resolution on 135 film.

On Fujifilm X100T Overview preview (637 comments in total)
In reply to:

LukeDuciel: as X100s user, this is not attractive.

I am crossing my finger for Fuji working with Sony for a curved X-Trans sensor.

I wish Fuji would arm the next gen X100 with that curved sensor. And that would be the time to upgrade.

As Fuji TX-1 user, this is not attractive. Still waiting for digital TX-1 (Xpan) camera or an affordable film scanner.
As you see, this camera (X100T) is not for us. Let's go shooting.

I'm a CG-artist. https://flic.kr/p/g6Kaut

I not just tried Windows Vista/7, but worked for rather long period. I switched back to XP64. My XP64 eats 280Mb of RAM, while Windows 7 eats more then 1GB from the start. I heard that Windows7 will give me back my RAM, when needed, but I never saw this! When dealing with complex 3D scenes I had problems with 3ds Max stability, and not having problems on Windows XP64 with these scenes. Maybe I has to buy new computer for windows7? But mine works fine on XP!
Windows 7 gives me nothing above what I get in Windows XP. Windows XP could live 10 years more (until 128-bit era comes:) ), but Microsoft has to earn money with new versions, so they stopped the support of it. For example, what's the problem for Microsoft to add TRIM for SSD for Windows XP? If O&Odefrag could do this, why couldn't Microsoft?
Windows XP is not dead, about 25-30% of computers are still using XP.
Film is also alive :).

Nice picture!
XP 64 is the best Windows ever made. Still using it. Absolutely Happy with it, not happy with Vista/7.
And still shooting film!
