Re: Strange color negatives among good ones

No, professional film is hardly found in stores. I find Kodak Ektar 100 to be well worth ordering for delivery by mail.

With my newly acquired CanoScan FS 2710, I will soon try a scan of a roll of Fujifilm Superia 200 film that I shot last June, but did not order high resolution scans.

What I see on scans of film at various resolutions is what I have read elsewhere. Namely, the apparent grain on scans of film matches the pixel size. Fujifilm Superia 800 seems to have a grain size not unreasonably larger than a density of 9 million pixels. The grain of Kodak Ektar 100 seems to match the density of a 17 million pixel scan, but it also seems to match a 35 million pixel scan on 6cm by 9cm film that is much less dense.
