I'm at a loss to understand why you would need to scan at 12,800 dpi which I'm assuming could print something the size of my living room wall! This picture was scanned from a BW negative at only 600 dpi and sized to about 7" x 6.5". I get a pop-up warning that such a big scan could be hard on my computer. Could you explain what I'm missing, please?
Re scanned some slides at 24bit color,12,800 dpi on the Epson V700 and they held up very well. File sizes are BIG, 540mb.
Mortimer, what is the brand you got from Hammacher ?
