What size film, and how was it scanned ?

35mm, Canon flatbed.

Thanks. My feeling is that the scan doesn't do justice to the original film image.

I'm sure you're right. My scans were "good enough" (I aim high), and my point was more that when viewed on my phone, iPad, or hdtv, I don't think oh that's film! or oh that's digital! I don't zoom in to 100% ever, and I can enjoy either medium equally. It's just the delayed gratification and extra work of film that I didn't care for. Plus the rabbit hole of film scanning, as you pointed out.
