Have you tried experimenting with film holders? The image you posted is out of focus (I'd estimate it to have maybe effective 3MP, not 80).

I agree with your general point, but I think your 3MP estimate is off. Also, the posted example is a roughly 60MP image rather than 80MP.

I downsampled that photo to 3MP and again to 7MP, then upsampled both results back to the original resolution for on-screen comparisons.

Original on left compared to 3MP variant on right

Original on left compared to 7MP variant on right

Based on that, I think there's more like 7MP of usable resolution in the original scan. Still very poor for a file that contains 60MP.
