The Davinator:

"I found it easier..." You've tried this direct print process too? What setup did you use? I've tried both, and know a few photogs who use the printed negative route, continually hearing their moans of discontent, sparked by the multiple problems inherent with inkjet printing. Printed internegs are also an extra time-consuming step. And with the additional cost of the negative material, ink, and re-dos, the inkjet/negative option costs about three times what a direct print costs. This direct method is faster, cheaper and easier, with consistent and generally superior results. This is my baby though, so I'm likely biased, so argue back; I'll try to pry my mind open.
