Re: Scanning negative films (35 and 120)

Not sure of it's the best method overall but it sure seems to be the most versatile and flexible. With flatbeds and film scanners, you get what you get. With a SLR, you cannot vary the resolution obviously but you can come closer and stitch, and you can play with other variables too.
What about the density? Can it perform well when it comes to squeezed the details out of under/over exposed parts ?
And what about consistency? I have a hard time to believe that a negative can be totally parallel to the lens and be consistent from one edge to another. It seems that, at that small scale, any slightest variation might degrade the results. Sharpness in particular.
Is it not a concern?
